As part of our ongoing series of Video Interviews with HR Directors in a wide variety of organisations across different sectors and industries, we talk to Karen Brookes, Director – People & Infrastructure, Sir Robert McAlpine – a well know construction company that is now 150 years old. This interview was recorded prior to Covid-19 and the full interview appeared in the March issue of our flagship publication (Subscribe today to read the full Interview).
Karen responds to six questions, designed to gain an understanding of how Sir Robert McAlpine is preparing for the future challenges ahead.
Peter Banks, Founder & Managing Director of theHRDIRECTOR commented: “As Karen states, the world and indeed the world of work is constantly changing, so ensuring they equip their people to keep learning is essential for the future of the business to ensure they have the ability to innovate, to change and to continuously improve. Karen sees their recently introduced SRM Pulse as a real ‘game-changer’, as this literally takes the pulse of the business on a weekly basis. They have already been able to respond to some real issues from the actual work environment through to mapping out career paths and recognition.”
