I head up the Workday Financials Practice for Kainos. My responsibilities are to drive the delivery of scalable business solutions to our customers globally and to extend Kainos’ services excellence by building exceptional talent and Financials capabilities in the Practice.
To recruit and retain the best people
Kainos means innovation in Greek and the principle of inspiring creativity remains central to our culture and corporate values.
We have an entire business unit whose sole purpose is to innovate and we work hard to maintain an environment across the organisation where creativity is encouraged, acknowledged and celebrated.
This is manifest in active internal programmes and initiatives including encouraging people to grow and move within the business and also develop skills meaningful to them outside work. It is mirrored in our involvement in external partnerships to promote creativity – our graduate and ‘Earn as you Learn’ programmes are particularly successful examples of this.
Clarity. Passion. Stamina.
Be confident. Be respectful. Be an example. And always hire people smarter than you.
