Show #225: How to Turn the Frown Upside Down Re-Engaging a Disaffected Workforce
Special Guest: Dawn George, Head of Human Resources, Eden Project
Dawn has been with the Eden Project in Bodelva since 2011 as Head of Human Resources, having relocated to Cornwall to take up this position. Originally from Northamptonshire, Dawn has spent over 25 years building her career in HR and spent 15 years of this in senior management HR roles in the private sector, including 20 years with Carphone Warehouse/ TalkTalk and Aviva.
Eden is one of the largest employers in Cornwall (outside of Government led organisations), and Dawn has been a key part of the senior leadership team that has taken Eden through a period of restructure to its current position of strength within Cornwall following some turbulent times in 2012/13.
Eden is now in a very strong position financially and over the last three years this has seen the organisation develop engaging and award winning programmes on site, together with the development of Eden International and a wide variety of educational activities in line with their mission as an Educational Charity.
The return to success would not have been possible without an engaged employee team. Join us as we discuss how supporting and developing the Eden Team through a restructure and period of transformation has been crucial to their current success.
