CEO and Co-Founder
Africa Health Placements
Saul Kornik is CEO and co-founder of Africa Health Placements (AHP), a “social-profit” organization that helps plan for, place retain crucial health resources where they are most needed. Kornik believes that their success – placing and supporting over 3,600 medical personnel in mostly rurally based positions within the SADC region since inception, providing retention support to over 4,000 managers, and performing extensive workforce planning across the region – lies in their strong organizational culture: a culture based on AHP’s mission but codified in such a way that it can be managed. More recently, in partnership with a global culture strategy consultancy, has started to work with health and other institutions to codify their own cultures, and to work with these institutions to build the integrated talent management that articulates their particular culture. Saul is a strong advocate for leadership through a measurable culture.
