'EXP advice from the trenches' with Charlotte Boujassy

Episode: 42

It was our pleasure recently to welcome Charlotte Boujassy, Head of Global Talent Development at Morphosys, to our PeopleSmart’s ‘Leadership Luminaries’ podcast series with host Michael Banks.

Charlotte speaks with clarity and authority from ‘the trenches’ about the nuts and bolts of connecting strategy with operations. She laments that In the HR and L&D world, this connection is often not made which in turn harms the employee experience.

Highlights of this interview include the importance of providing employees with enjoyable development experiences in which they can have fun! They might learn some new content but primarily they should feel good about the company’s offerings.

In Charlotte’s opinion, the oft-used word Agility is really about getting things done fast! And in her role, she shares in fascinating detail how she is able to build positive relationships with internal stakeholders such as Procurement, Corporate Communications, and Accounts Payable to catalyze speedy results.

L&D and HR have an impact on the employee experience from onboarding to off boarding and Charlotte is particularly keen on realizing the often neglected benefits of offboarding. People can leave and come back and this generous approach generates goodwill in the wider business community.
