Ep 81: The Perspectives Of A Group HR Director

As part of my continuing focus on getting a diverse range of opinions and voices on the show, this week I thought it would be interesting to get the views of a Global HR Director.

My guest for this episode is Graeme Cook, Group HR Director at ground engineering specialist Keller, a company who employ 10,000 people across 40 different companies. Graeme’s career has itself been a global one and he has worked in several different countries for his past employers, giving him a genuinely global perspective.

In the interview we discuss:

• Some of the key considerations and challenges of operating HR at a global level

• Skill shortages in the Oil, Gas and Engineering sectors

• The three key parts of the HR Director’s role and HR’s position within the organization

• Technology, automation and the future of HR

Graeme also talks about his transition from working in finance to working in HR and gives his views on the challenges of managing a multi-generational workforce.
