Director of Employee Success | Carvana
Erin is focused on living at the intersection of what nourishes people and what drives companies forward. Previously a consultant at PwC in the People & Organizations practice for technology, media and telecommunications for Fortune Top 50 companies, she had the good fortune to continue to take on these challenges at Carvana. With deep expertise in different contexts such as scaling for growth, cost reduction, customer experience, and improving organizational effectiveness, she gets really excited to solve challenges around culture, employee experience and working to create best practices in ambiguous situations. The ambiguity of 2020 – that we continue to experience into 2021 – being no exception; she continues to be at the center of answering many of Carvana’s work from home questions – from strategy to execution. At Carvana, in her Director of Employee Success role, her north star is set at setting up her operational stakeholders for success and fostering Carvana’s mission on her teams. With a newfound, amateur love of natural wines, she also likes to pretend to be athletic by running with her husband or 2 person “track club”, and coming home to be showered in licks by her three Australian Shepherds.
Workshop: Human Centric Leadership
People are not deliverables. This is a hard thing for many new, tenured, or even masters of the business world to remember. In our quest for speed, accuracy, results, and a sense of completion we can lose sight of those humans who are behind the creation of the decks, analysis, and policies that do propel companies forward. This “immediacy” is also the norm we’ve come to expect in so many ways, so why not expect it of ourselves and our people? (I mean, I could order a steak medium-rare with a side of creamed spinach at this very moment, and it could be here in 30 minutes!) But, people are not deliverables. They are dynamic, complicated, and interesting beings who are so much more than the sum of their work accomplishments. So what does that mean for your leadership style, the results you are held accountable to, and broadly your business? Well, let’s dive in together!
