Our HR Legal team believes in finding solutions, driving change, taking smart risk, and creating the best possible experiences for the leaders and stakeholders we support. We coach our partners around the world to work through problems, not tell them what to do. We believe in talking and writing like real humans, not lawyers. We have a healthy dose of humility and like to think we’re funny, although that’s up for debate. We love finding ways that data and technology can make us better at what we do. We believe diversity and inclusion among our teammates produces better results and is critical to our success as a global company. We are committed to recruiting, developing, and retaining the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool.
If that sounds like the right place for you and you’re ready to do some of the most impactful work of your career, we want to talk to you.
