Selmore Foundation  is a company that thrives on professionalism and exceeding clients expectations.

Our work is not limited to enhancing performance, we have in the past provided college scholarships, school supplies to Eros, a tiny village in Nigeria, and we have done philanthropic work for those in need.

Joy  believes that if something makes sense, it does not mean it's common practice. There is a big difference between knowing what to do and actually doing it.  KNOWING is not enough. It takes a knowledge of procedure and the desire to turn common sense into common practice.


Joy has experience in all areas of the HR function, including but not limited to talent acquisition, training and development, labor relations, and payroll administration.  She started her career  at General Motors Corporation in Atlanta in 1976.  IN 1990 she relocated to B-O-C Group in Lansing, Michigan, where she authored and presented executive training programs.  As A certified on-campus recruiter she actively worked in talent acquisition for General Motors from 1988- 1995, she met hiring goals for the corporation by recruiting at national career fairs, and interviewing and hiring from top Colleges and Universities around the country.  During her tenure, she  Directed Student Programs where she again hired students for summer and co-op opportunities. She likes to think that she helped over 400 students secure engineering and business degrees through her supervision and mentoring as Director.  Joy led a team of managers in designing and developing a Sexual Harassment training program which was  later video taped and corporate adopted  the program for training over 300,000 employees.
