Planit Software Group’s recently promoted Global Human Resources Director sees the focus of her new role as providing staff with opportunities to learn and progress.
Dawn House says she will ensure that wherever staff are based around the world, the only thing holding them back will be their own drive.
In her new role she is responsible for HR requirements for all Planit’s 300 staff around the world. “A company’s greatest resource is its employees,” she says. “Without good employees even the best business plans may fail. By focusing on Planit’s employees and partnering with managers to help them develop their staff, HR can help everyone stay focused on their jobs, ultimately making the business more efficient. Employees can either make a company great, or they can break it.”
While addressing the general differences in each country’s employment laws, specifically between America and the United Kingdom, she says Planit’s staff are remarkably similar, no matter where they live and work. “While different motivators may drive them to be their best, everyone just wants to be an integral part of Planit’s success.
“I’m intending to build a Human Resources department that focuses on ‘Doing The Right Thing’ for our staff, our external customers and our business. We’ll be bringing the right people together across the business to solve problems, while consistently working to break down any barriers.”
Based at Planit’s Tuscaloosa office in the United States, Dawn House has worked for the company for ten years, and was previously U.S. Director of Human Resources. After gaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Studies, she has clocked up 20 years experience in accounting, payroll and Human Resources.
