The Director will take the lead on defining our strategic employee engagement playbook and aligning leadership around it, being the business owner of our Pulse survey and employee listening more broadly, driving and supporting initiatives across the company to address employee VOE, and cultivating a community of engagement leaders at our sites, in business/functional communities, and at the grassroots level.

Ultimately this leader needs to be a visionary people champion who can motivate leaders and employees across the company to action in service to our unique people-first culture.

  • Take an end-to-end view of engagement across the company, ensuring consistent and rigorous execution of engagement-related action plans by key leaders in the business, functions, HR, Workplace and beyond. Drive transformational change of how we engage employees, galvanizing key partners, incorporating data, and embracing a bias for action to iterate and improve the approach over time.
  • Own the employee listening strategy in partnership with People Analytics, Research and Technology team (PART) and Communications partners to define how we measure employee engagement in our next chapter of work, including our biannual Pulse Survey and other listening methods.

Drive and shepherd follow-up actions and initiatives that address opportunities surfaced in employee listening to improve employee engagement and experience.
  • Define our blueprint for engagement and culture driving roles at sites (including Site Leaders) and support the staffing of these roles, working with P&P Senior Leadership to surface candidates and/or marshal resources where appropriate.
  • Inspire and cultivate grassroots contribution that augments our site community including: skills-based, interest-based, and geography-based communities to drive a greater sense of employee connectedness and belonging.
  • Contribute to and partner with our event and experience team to drive delivery of marquee employee facing events that foster engagement and amplify our people-first culture (e.g. State of the Company, end of year celebration, We Care Give Back).
