January 31, 2023 | Hosted by Eric Chemi

Today we welcome Katie Banks to the podcast. Based out of Dublin, Katie is Nitro’s vice president of global people and workplace. Nitro helps accelerate businesses globally through digital documents resulting in powerful productivity for all. Katie discusses how important it is for companies to look out for their employees and handle the most challenging human resource situations – like layoffs – most fairly and kindly, complying with local legal requirements. Not everyone can do what Katie does. Our host even explains why he’s not in human resources. Tune in to find out why Katie is, and hear her thoughts and approaches to recent challenges like mass layoffs at companies adversely affected by a changing economy. Her approach to managing and interacting with fellow “nitronauts” applies to HR across organizations and industries.
