Innovation and experience company IE Digital has announced the appointment of Carolyn Butcher as its head of people and culture.
Butcher brings with her 15 years of HR experience, with her last role at corporate law firm Thomson Geer.
In her new role, Butcher will be responsible for creating high engagement with IE’s teams, driving the strategic people direction of the business and supporting team members in their career development.
A barrier to innovation is leadership hierarchy, so to combat this, IE has always maintained a flat structure and start-up culture.
Taking this even further over the last year, the organisation has looked at decentralising leadership and promoting self-organising teams. Carolyn will be implementing best practices in these areas and supporting the ongoing vision for a high-performing organisation.
Rhys Hayes, chief executive of IE, said he was very confident in the change Butcher will bring to the company and its leadership team.
“We’re in the people game at IE. Because of that, it’s crucial to ensure our teams have the best training and working environment in the business,” he said.
“Carolyn’s appointment comes with a commitment to maintaining our high standards and meeting our 2020 growth targets. We’re ecstatic to have her join the IE fold.”
Commenting on her appointment, Butcher said: “I couldn’t be happier to join IE Digital as a progressive consultancy with a brilliant workforce.
“I look forward to helping the business achieve its growth targets whilst supporting IE people in developing dynamic and interesting lifelong careers in a supportive, intellectually challenging and fun environment.”
