Who's that girl?
Oh, just me: Rebecca-Monique. My first name is hyphenated, but it's a bit of a mouthful, so I won't be offended if you don't say the whole thing; Rebecca will do just fine. If you haven't figured it out yet, the name of my website is my name without the vowels. Mind you, it plays havoc with my site SEO, but I digress!...
I'm glad you stopped by to check out who I am. I'm not into fancy, ego-massaging titles, but for the purpose of context and perspective I'm Head of People (traditionally Head of HR). My my! Head of what? People. Yup. I have every intention of humanising this function.
Now that we've covered that, let me tell you a little bit more about who I am and what I do.
I'm an HR professional in the tech industry. Startups and fast-growth companies are my thing. I love love LOVE being part of something that I can truly help shape, mould, and watch grow.
Autonomy, mastery, and purpose. You may be thinking: "Enough with the buzzwords already", but those are the things that truly matter to people at work today, and they certainly matter to me!
In my spare time, I dabble in a bit of amateur photography and have a new-found enthusiasm for cinematography. Click the 'Photography' link at the top of this page to view my website and check out some of my work. Go on.
I'm the People person at Attest - a market and brand intelligence tech company. Here, I'm responsible for looking after the company's greatest asset: its people. Responsibilities entrusted with me encompass all things HR: recruitment, onboarding, retention, engagement, rewards, L&D, culture, and people strategy.
London, UK. No place I'd rather be.
