During the last 15 years, I have been able to learn from different people, their experiences and their passions and learn from different industries and companies. I have had the pleasure to work in Fortune 500 companies, small companies, and start-ups. All of them taught me how to be a better person, beyond my role. While working in Human Resources, you get to know the company from its heart, both good and bad. You have to sharpen your abilities and soft skills. It has been an incredible journey.
Now Nokia has been the place to shine as a professional, share my knowledge and experience, and also create, innovate and design programs for our current and future employees. This role has been a true challenge from the beginning, as we were building something from scratch. 2 years later I can say we made it work, and now is the time to make things greater!
A few months ago I was given the opportunity to expand my role and I´m currently leading programs and initiatives related to Talent Acquisition, Talent Attraction and Talent Development inside our Talent Acquisition organization. I recently developed a program to expand two major competencies in our global team and now working on some hot topics like Diversity & Inclusion, and Young Professionals development.
I'm based in Bogota, Colombia.
Nokia is a place to challenge yourself, to innovate, to dare to be different and to stand out! I love what I do here and the possibilities I have to make an impact in people´s life.
Two years ago Nokia was going through a major acquisition. Alcatel-Lucent is now part of our company and we had to design and execute new ways of working inside our Human Resources organization. My main goal was to implement a new talent acquisition process in our region (think about more than 23 countries!) and making sure we didn´t have any business disruption.
Now, I can say we made it. During the first year, we hire more than +1200 people with the new mode of operation, and we were able to standardize our processes. The second year was about quality. I´m not going to say it was easy nor perfect, but we made it work and it´s something I´m extremely proud of!
