HR Happy Hour 363 - Business Transformation and Diversity & Inclusion
Host: Steve Boese
Guest: Melissa Whiting, Vice President, Diversity & Inclusion, Philip Morris International
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve was joined by Melissa Whiting, Vice President, Diversity & Inclusion, Philip Morris International to talk about the major business transformation happening at the global organization with over 75,000 employees, how PMI's Diversity & Inclusion efforts are contributing to the success of these transformation efforts, and how the D&I role has to be emphasized and valued at organizations of any size.
Melissa also shared how PMI has become the first large, global organization to achieve the Global Equal Salary certification - and how that illustrates the company's commitment to fairness and equality in the workplace. She shared what this certification entails, the rigorous and independent nature of the review process, and the value of achieving the certification for the organization and its employees.
This was an interesting and engaging conversation on diversity and inclusion from one of the world's largest and well-known organizations. Thanks very much to Melissa for joining us. Learn more about PMI's 'Project 42' that we talked about on the show HERE.
