Sustainable Workforce of the Year Award: Jenn Mann
In determining the Sustainable Workforce of the Year
Award, judges considered several dimensions of the
candidates' performance, including the scope of the
workforce's impact on the community, measurable
excellence in citizenship initiatives, and overall
workplace innovation. This year's winner is Jenn Mann,
vice president of human resources for SAS Institute.
With a global workforce of more than 14,000
employees, SAS' workforce initiatives have centered
largely on talent management under Jenn Mann and
her team. Mann approaches talent management as
a shared strategy between HR and the rest of the
business by developing strong partnerships with
SAS leaders and having an understanding of their
requirements for success.
" HR is ultimately responsible for ensuring
organizations have the right talent needed to deliver
to their customers and shareholders, " says Mann. " This
requires innovative initiatives and programs focused on
the entire employee experience including compelling
work and growth opportunity, competent leadership
and an enjoyable work environment. "
The vice president of human resources is very much
aligned with the needs to the current workforce in
order to drive employee productivity and loyalty. HR
has recently led several initiatives based on feedback
from the workforce in order to build a sustainable
culture. SAS has launched programs around career
growth and internal opportunities. A new online
career center allows employees to find training and
the importance of a sustainable workforce and its link
to customer satisfaction and business results. "
