Vacancy: Chief People Officer
The Chief People Officer is part of the leadership team and drives all people aspects of the business. The key responsibility is to define and implement the Employee Experience Strategy globally through expert knowledge of best practices and emerging trends of all aspects of employment. This includes recruitment, compensation, benefits, recognition, wellbeing, training & development, performance acceleration, talent, and career planning.
Furthermore, the CPO inspires the entire organization to become more people-centric. The baseline is already there: there is an HR team of nine who will report to the CPO, and the business is in the process of adopting a new HR system, a new performance review structure, and a salary benchmark with Mercer consultants. The company culture is focused on making people feel good at work. For example, recently the leadership team got together, and each person discussed their responsibilities, indicating which does or does not give them energy. Subsequently, some responsibilities were exchanged to assure everyone could largely focus on what energizes them most.
“We encourage our people to be happy. Happy people make happy customers and happy customers will enable our success.” – Luciano Cunha, CEO
The Chief People Officer has a key role in the operation of To-Increase and will make fundamental contributions to the organization’s culture, development, and staffing.
