The World Employee Experience Institute (WEEI) is delighted to announce that Laura Montiel has become an official WEEI Partner.
Laura has an impressive background as a commercial business leader working for companies including Visa, Citigroup, Continental Airlines, and American Express. More recently, Laura was the Director of Consulting for Great Place to Work in Argentina. Having spent the majority of her career working within businesses in senior commercial roles, and with direct experience leading people-centric commercial services, Laura brings to WEEI a unique background that centres around people and business success.
On partnering with WEEI, Laura said:
"Constant change, new generations, different corporate structures arising, more personalized customer demands…all of these have made us aware of the imperative of re-thinking and re-designing workplace environments. In today´s world, the business perspective can no longer be understood and developed, unless it considers the human perspective a priority.
Working in both Mexico and Argentina, I have professionally been involved in transformational processes taking place in different companies; I know from my own experience that it represents a passionate and a challenging endeavor.
Although my experience has been primarily based in Latin America, it amazes me how the same issues and interests regarding this subject are replicated around the globe. In my quest to find the best tools to generate more value to the companies I collaborate with, I found the Employee Experience concept.
I firmly believe that the Employee Experience approach offers a holistic view on how workplaces should transform to thrive in the present and future. It represents a must-have in the C-Suite and HR agenda.
Then, I found Ben Whitter´s ideas and his WEEI creation. His contribution is visionary and will endure in the long term. The more I followed his proposal, the more I felt I had to be part of what he is building, and now, it is quite an honor to become a partner; and a privilege to actively participate in such an inspiring and growth-generating purpose.
Excited to collaborate with the Employee Experience Movement, vividly represented by Ben, WEEI and the team of seasoned professionals involved around it."
Ben Whitter, Founder of the World Employee Experience Institute (WEEI), said:
"Laura is a fantastic addition to our growing community; she brings a broad range of commercial experience at some of the World's leading brands, and has also directly supported companies to become Argentina's top workplaces. This mix of commercial and employee-centric experience will add a huge amount of value to WEEI, our clients in Latin America, and the employee experience movement as a whole. I'm excited about working with Laura to advance our shared vision."
