How Can You Unlock Purpose & Potential In Your Workforce? With Stephen Lochhead, Expedia Group

Hear from Stephen Lochhead, Senior Vice President, Global Talent Acquisition at Expedia Group, on how to unlock potential in your workforce, create continuity in hiring programs, and embed talent mobility throughout the organization.

Stephen has worked for some of the world’s most successful businesses and helped them rethink the ways in which a broad talent agenda can have the best impact. His passion is bringing the outside in, and taking a creative approach in order to disrupt the status quo.

“I honestly believe that purpose-driven organizations perform better, and there’s a very simple reason behind that. Purpose-driven organizations really campaign hard around unlocking employees’ discretionary effort, and they do that in a number of ways. Sometimes the best way they do that is completely unique to them, so it becomes unrepeatable to other organizations. But typically it’s around why is it that your world of work matters, and how is it that you connect with that on a day-to-day basis.” – Stephen Lochhead
