Kelly Main, Global Talent Management at Trimble
Kelly leads Global Talent Management at Trimble, a highly decentralized global company with nearly 12,000 people across 50 countries. She has responsibility for performance, engagement, employee value proposition, diversity and inclusion - to name a few. The most energizing part of Kelly's job is trying to get all of the parts working as a whole. For example, how we have performance conversations can impact employee engagement and employees' sense of inclusion. If we effectively live our employee value proposition, performance and engagement can rise. And one way we drive diversity and inclusion is to infuse everything we do in Talent Management with the lens and prioritization of diversity, equity and inclusion. A very close second highlight of Kelly's job is working with an exceptional, global HR team.
