Dr. Gabriela “Gabby” Burlacu
Dr. Gabriela “Gabby” Burlacu works in the Cloud Customer Office at SAP, developing methods and tools to assess and improve the value customers get from their SAP solutions. She received her doctorate in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Portland State University, where she studied the motivational, attitudinal, and behavioral impacts of age in the workforce. Although Gabby’s role at SAP involves engaging with companies broadly on issues and challenges related to managing their workforces, often this involves directly addressing the design and implementation of HR processes that meet the needs of employees of all ages. When not on the frontlines of strategic talent management, she can be found boating, kayaking, and hiking in her hometown of Portland, Oregon.
