💡Thoughts from Glean's Head of Employee Experience;

In this role you will:

  • Be an innovator: I’m not looking for your traditional people leader. I’m looking for someone who takes a holistic approach to people's operations. You strive to continuously innovate to improve the employee experience and its impact across the business.
  • Be a People partner: For both your team & wider business. You’ll be responsible for managing a really talented, multi-disciplined team, whilst also collaborating with your own business partnering groups (specifically middle management).
  • Design people-first strategies: my vision is for us to work closely together to design, develop & deliver on people strategies that consider the employee experience at every aspect of business operations. Your role in this is to design & execute on strategies that prioritise engagement and job satisfaction.
  • Be a key stakeholder in compensation philosophies: We have worked hard to create and embed career frameworks & salary bandings that promote career growth & fairness.  I’m looking for someone who is able to work closely with line managers and the Employee Experience team to ensure that they drive growth and performance. In addition to this, I want you to take ownership of employee benefits, particularly owning internal communications & understanding of our benefits at Glean.
  • Employee Relations savvy: you will lead on all employee relations matters that are escalated beyond our first line support. You will support a resolution that leads to the best outcomes for all involved.
  • Embed a learning culture: Learning is at the heart of what we do, and its incredibly important that we’re designing & embedding career development approaches and L&D activities into our people operations. We’ll work together on creating forward thinking strategies and empower your team & line managers to confidently execute on those activities & approaches.
