HR Happy Hour 326 - High Tech HR: Innovating + Expanding Opportunity at Red Hat
Host: Steve Boese
Guest: DeLisa Alexander, Executive Vice President, Chief People Officer, Red Hat
Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by DeLisa Alexander, EVP and Chief People Officer at Red Hat - an 11,000+ employee high tech company built on open source technology and committed to the idea that sharing, community, and being open can unlock the potential of people and organizations.
On the show, DeLisa shared her perspectives as an HR leader in a large, growing, technical company, and the major challenges and opportunities facing HR leaders today, and some of the ways DeLisa and her team at Red Hat are approaching these challenges. Chief among these are competing for technical talent in a highly competitive labor market, expanding opportunity (especially in tech), to traditionally underrepresented communities, and preparing the environment for them to succeed at Red Hat, and how Red Hat's culture and ethos around open source and community building informs and supports everything they do in HR and talent.
This was a really informative, interesting, and fun conversation with an innovative and progressive HR leader at a leading organization in a competitive space - I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed the conversation with DeLisa.
Thanks to DeLisa and the folks at Red Hat.
