Meet the Author

Since graduating from the University of Georgia in 1978, Randy has worked for MAU Workforce Solutions, a family-owned business founded by his father, William G. Hatcher Sr. When Randy joined the company, it had just seven full-time employees (including him, his brother, and father) and twenty-five temporary employees working at customer locations in Augusta, Georgia. Today, MAU’s reach extends internationally, and it is one of the largest independently owned staffing firms in North America.

Randy has learned many lessons on his life journey. He has come to recognize that companies of the future will survive and flourish through their partnerships and that if businesses do not continue to reinvent themselves, they will fail or be commoditized. Randy has written a book on this lesson called The Birth of a New Workforce. Most important to him is the value of operating a business under Godly principles.

A past member of the Young President’s Organization (YPO), Randy currently belongs to the World President’s Organization (WPO) and the Chief Executives’ Organization (CEO).

His passions include influencing behavior to encourage positive outcomes. In the business world, this idea has manifested itself in two primary ways: through his pioneering roles in both the staffing and outsourcing industries, and through his many interactions with business leaders, whether one-on-one or in group settings. On the personal side, he enjoys teaching and stretching the minds of others to more deeply consider the tenets of the Christian faith.

Randy lives in Augusta, Georgia with his wife, Marilee, and their twin Cairn terriers, Molly and Lucy.

Randy takes a new and inovative approach to solving today's labor issues. Gone are the days where individuals stay at one job for a life time. The evolving workforce requires professional management to ensure cost control. Fluctuating demand requires the ability to manage the workforce to meet the demand keeping costs under control. Flexibility is the key and this this book presents viable solutions. A must read in todays changing environment.

This book is a must-read for HR professionals. The idea to focus on your core business--what separates you from the rest--and spend your time on that, is an important one. What if we all focused on JUST our core business? What kind of success might we see? This book is definitely worth the read and the time to digest and apply the ideas. It just might change your company.

The Birth of a New Workforce is a MUST READ for any business owner/manager that hopes to survive, and eventually thrive, in the evolving business environment of the 21st century! This book addresses the most prevalent challenges in today's economy and provides clear-cut solutions to them. Every page is filled with value-added content, rather than the "fluff" found in a lot of books on this subject. The concepts are revolutionary, while incorporating the premise that seems to have been forgotten over time...that people are the most valuable asset in any organization!
