For today’s episode, I interviewed Karen Weeks, Senior Vice President of People at Ordergroove. As a testament to her many accomplishments, Karen was recognized this year as one of the 2020 most Notable Women in Talent by Crain’s New York Business, who call her a maestro of human resources. Truly a master of her craft, Karen shares with me her strategies in leadership at Ordergroove by giving insight into the company’s adjustment to COVID-19, the benefits of managing through communication, and the structure of their hiring process. From her clever team building approach -- like book clubs, trivia nights, cooking classes, or even contests for the most unique at-home work space -- to a detailed look at her favorite interview questions, Karen demonstrates all the impressive qualities of her new and well-earned title as a Notable Woman.
