Papia Debroy

Papia oversees our research and data insights work to assist private, public and social sector leaders to act to improve the economic opportunity for Skilled Through Alternative Routes (STARs).

Prior to joining Opportunity@Work, Papia served as a Research Director at CEB, a member based advisory organization serving more than 80% of the Fortune 1000. In this role, she counseled large, complex organizations on their hiring practices, employee engagement approaches, retention policies, competency models and succession plans.  She did so by conducting research on the key challenges of leaders across these organizations and using that insight to build and manage analytic tools, behavioral assessment solutions as well as leadership development offerings. To effectively deploy these solutions, Papia designed and led a complex sales enablement strategy, executed a new-to-world marketing approach, created operational processes, managed teams across several continents and built a product architecture that used these tools to deliver quality insight and actionable guidance to several thousand clients across her tenure. Her experience serving a wide range of corporate leaders with innovative solutions to chronic challenges related to attracting and retaining talent provides her with a unique perspective on employer performance management across a wide range of industries.
