Diversity and Talent Management Specialist
Lisa Jobson is a talent management professional with a passion for supporting businesses in determining the focus and strategic importance of diversity in achieving business goals and gaining competitive advantage. Her expertise encompasses the full employee life-cycle: from designing creative attraction strategies and recruitment processes, implementing personal and professional development programmes, to employee engagement and succession planning. Lisa’s overriding objective has been to help businesses continually move closer to an inclusive culture where all are welcome, all points of view are heard and all contributions are valued. With more than 20 years’ experience in the technology and financial recruitment sectors, Lisa was previously a member of the UK & Ireland Professional Recruitment Board of Harvey Nash Plc. In 2008 she became Harvey Nash’s first Director of Talent, with the brief to design and implement a talent management strategy for Group businesses across the UK and Ireland. This work extended to advising and supporting external clients on aspects of their people management strategies, and managing projects in outplacement, internships, attrition and psychometric evaluation. More recently, Lisa managed the culture change programme ‘Inclusive @ Harvey Nash’, and was a member of the executive steering committee responsible for the company’s National Equality Standard accreditation process. Harvey Nash successfully achieved the accreditation in 2017, becoming the first UK recruitment company to do so.
