This is an exciting opportunity to harness all of this human potential more consistently throughout the company in order to make a significant difference,” added Laurence. “My first few months will be focused on business discovery as this is critical to establishing a relevant, connected and effective HR function. I will also be forming – jointly with regional Exclusive leaders – an inclusive, impactful, and phased global HR strategy to empower business success. I can already see a clearly defined culture and a flat, agile and highly localized structure, which is rare for an organization of this size, but I want to explore further improvements, and find out what more we can do to support individuals to bring even more success to Exclusive Networks.”
