  • Partner with the People Team's Centers of Excellence (Org Effectiveness, Total Rewards, People Experience Team, Talent Acquisition, HRIS, and more) to:
    • Proactively contribute to creating, developing, and rolling out global processes and programs.
    • Advise on organizational changes to optimize organization and talent (creating and analyzing the need for new jobs, defining career paths, employee programs, organizational structure, promotions, and individual development plans).
    • Execute RIF planning, prepping managers, building talking points, and handling Workday set up of changes.

What you need to have:
