What is DebCo HR?

Welcome to DebCo HR, a company created to help you and your business make genuine, meaningful and lasting change by challenging traditional ways of treating your people - thinking and acting in more rebellious, strategic and action-oriented ways.


I've helped companies from around the world through consulting, speaking, and workshops, and would welcome the opportunity to help you, paying it forward through my unique combination of experience, expertise, and passion.


How can I help you?

I conduct a variety of interactive workshops for your HR team, managers or general workforce to help you address and educate in key areas such as engagement, leadership, recognition, communication and company values. 


Combining strategy, stories, practical tips and interactive discussions, these workshops help attendees walk away more educated, inspired and ready to own and drive change.

If you're looking for someone to “educate, inspire and entertain your audience all at one time” as one conference organizer said, then please contact me to speak at your event or at your company.


With 20+ years of experience to draw from, as well as learnings from writing four best-selling books, I speak on a wide range of topics to meet your needs, and leave audiences with practical tips and tools, and a bias for action and change.


If you need someone to help with your engagement, culture and values, reward and recognition or communication strategy and/or programs, I’m here to help you develop and deliver solutions that are right for your business and your people.

With 20+ years of experience to draw from, knowledge from interviewing over 100 companies when writing my four books, or consulting companies in different sectors, I have extensive experience and lessons to share.



About Me

Top 101 Employee Engagement Thought Leader, Best-Selling Author, Global Keynote Speaker, Consultant

Hi everyone, I'm Debra Corey and I’ve been "doing" HR for over 20 years. Sometimes I’ve done it well, and other times I’ve made mistakes along the way. This has been invaluable in teaching me important and powerful lessons about how best to engage a workforce in companies of all sizes, industries, geographies and generations.


I’ve worked at global companies such as Gap Inc., Merlin Entertainments, Quintiles and Reward Gateway to name a few. These experiences have helped me fine tune my skills, and develop into the HR rebel that I am today, having the attitude and confidence to know what and how to make a difference and not being afraid to give innovation and change a go.


I’ve transitioned into what I call the "pay it forward" part of career as Chief Pay it Forward Solutions Officer at DebCo HR. This is where I have the pleasure of sharing my knowledge and experience with others by speaking, consulting, teaching, coaching and writing. I’m absolutely loving this new chapter in my career, and I look forward to supporting you and your organization however I can.
