Broadleaf has long been recognized as a premier provider of total talent and workforce management solutions. But who are the people behind-the-scenes that help make our success possible?
In this edition of our “In the Limelight” series, meet Claudia Nardulli, Director of Client Delivery. With nearly 15 years of Broadleaf experience, Claudia has served as a trusted advisor to some of our organization’s largest and most high-profile clients. In developing and implementing customer service strategies and comprehensive delivery plans, Claudia is a key cog in promoting Broadleaf’s A+ Client Experience model for our customers.
Can you provide some information on your background?
I was raised in San Diego, California as a first-generation American citizen. My parents immigrated to the United States from Mexico. I was born into a strict, tight-knit, Catholic household as the youngest of six children. My father dedicated himself to his work, while my mother stayed at home to take care of my siblings and me. To this day, we all still live in the San Diego area. Southern California has been our home for so long that none of us could ever leave!
Growing up, who were some of your role models and people you looked up to?
I learned a great deal from both of my parents. For as long as I can remember, they instilled in me the importance of perseverance and integrity, two values that have served me well throughout my life. Beyond my parents, I have always idolized Eleanor Roosevelt and her contributions to expanding roles for women in the workplace. The impact of her advocacy efforts is still being felt to this day.
What led you to join the team at Broadleaf?
When I began interviewing at Broadleaf almost 15 years ago, the company reminded me a lot of my personal upbringing. It immediately struck me that the entire organization – from top to bottom – seemed to resemble one, united family. Each person who I talked to echoed the same sentiment – that Broadleaf employees were committed to supporting each other which, in turn, would enable effective and efficient service delivery for clients. This family-like atmosphere really appealed to me. I wanted to go to a place where I felt like my voice was being heard – and that’s exactly how I feel at Broadleaf.
What do you like most about working at Broadleaf?
I’ve always been someone who believes that all employees within an organization should be treated equally, regardless of title or level of authority. At Broadleaf, our President and CEO, Lynne Marie Finn, actively champions this idea. Lynne is one of the most approachable leaders that I’ve ever met. Despite her hectic schedule, she takes the time to connect with each employee on a personal level while gaining an understanding of the workplace challenges that hinder both individual and company-wide performance. Lynne has made it her mission to ensure that each Broadleaf employee has the opportunity to be heard.
What excites you about your work?
Without a doubt, I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to help people on a daily basis. Our team is committed to building positive relationships and crafting customized solutions for our customers to help them achieve their workplace goals and objectives. At Broadleaf, we celebrate our organizational victories – regardless of how big or small they may be – because our team understands the magnitude of these successes in the eyes of our clients.
What are you passionate about in your local San Diego community?
When I’m not in the office, you’ll most likely find me out and about in the community. Both my husband and I are humanitarians at heart. We belong to, volunteer at, and philanthropically support a number of local organizations, including the San Diego Adaptive Sports Foundation, the Challenged Athlete Foundation, and Catholic Charities. I’m also a huge advocate of the Wounded Warrior Project. My husband has dedicated 20 years of service to the United States Navy , and I realize the importance of supporting such an incredible organization that aids thousands of military veterans and their families on an annual basis.
What’s your favorite part about living in San Diego?
San Diego has always been a place that is near and dear to my heart. Us Southern Californians are spoiled to have perfect weather throughout all four seasons. Living in San Diego is like being on a vacation 365 days a year!
