Today I talk with Jo Lynn Clemens who is CEO and Founder of I’ve Been Vetted, a company that helps companies improve risk management of employees with a risk scoring platform called , Risk Karma. Like many other successful startups, Clemens found a need and sought to fill that need by providing a scoring system to help companies reduce risks in one of the most expensive areas of risk management -- employee behavior.
Jo Lynn came to entrepreneurship after the death of her father, when she sought more work flexibility while she settled his estate. Using what she learned in her previous jobs in insurance and risk management and as an auditor with Lloyd’s of London, she set about developing tools to help companies better manage their risks in human resources. Clemens finds one of the keys to her success is employing efficient processes and building relationships with clients.
