  • Enable People Team Strategy across G&A by driving special projects in partnership with key PeopleX partners across the department.
  • Drive project management of G&A-specific programs, developing tracking and communication practices to ensure progress, accountability, and an understanding of how the work in G&A ladders to broader PeopleX initiatives.
  • Partner with the G&A People Partners and Talent team to implement people and organizational solutions for key client groups, aligned with the business strategy.
  • Bring together your people expertise with knowledge of our business to deliver people strategies that help grow and develop our talent.
