Investec head of HR Lesley-Anne Gatter nominated for CHRO Awards

Lesley-Anne has held many roles at Investec since joining the company in 2006.

Investec Head of HR and global head of learning Lesley-Anne has been nominated for the 2020 CHRO Awards. The CHRO Awards ceremony will be held on 26 November 2020 at Inanda Club in Johannesburg. It will give HR directors and CHROs of listed companies, large corporations, state-owned entities and government institutions alike an opportunity to be recognised and rewarded for their exceptional performance and leadership. 

Lesley-Anne joined Investec in 2006 and became the head of learning and development in 2007. In this role, she collaborated on the design and delivery of learning initiatives into the organisation, including diversity and leadership development. In 2016, she was appointed as head of HR for Investec, which last September introduced new leave and dress practices for all South African employees whereby staff will have the option to have a flexible number of leave days and freedom to choose how to dress based on their tasks/meetings for the day. 

The groundbreaking policy gave Investec employees a lot more autonomy provided they were meeting their deadlines and adding value to the business with innovate ideas.
