Having an experienced Business Partner who understands how to navigate the complexity of teams around the world, will be crucial for our long-term success.  We need someone who can look around corners to make sure we are creating teams and processes that scale.

  • Coach current and new employees in their development, career pathing and ability to navigate and resolve tricky challenges.
  • Make the outstanding leaders you support even stronger, by providing guidance, cross-functional perspectives and 360 degree feedback.
  • Assure that Harry’s culture, values and engagement initiatives translate effectively to all global employees.
  • Identify opportunities to use technology and automation wherever you see inefficiencies to make everyone’s lives easier and enhance overall communication between teams.
