Senior Talent Development Lead

| Chicago

 

Do you have a passion for helping people grow?

 

Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses by connecting people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. In the process, we’re positively impacting the lives of millions of customers and merchants globally. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.

The Talent Development Senior Lead will support the strategy and execution of talent development initiatives in the disciplines of performance management, talent management, employee engagement, learning and development, and culture. This person will be a member of the Global Talent Development team and will work closely with HRBPs, and business leaders to establish and bring to life our people agenda. As Groupon continues its focus on attracting, developing, and retaining top talent, we are seeking a Talent Development Senior Lead to craft and deploy programs that support our employees in a competitive talent landscape.  

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a significant and meaningful impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

How you'll spend your time:

Leadership Development

  • You will ensure effective delivery and evaluation of management and leadership capability programs

  • You will guide and collaborate with business leaders to craft, revise and facilitate internal training initiatives

  • Partner with both HR and the business to build methods that meet succession and development planning needs of different teams and ultimately strengthen the bench of future leaders

 

Culture and Engagement

  • You will manage and continually evolve the Pulse Survey program

  • Promote the Groupon mission, values, and Leader Habits

 

Talent Processes

  • You will manage the performance management, talent review, and mid-year promotions processes with an eye toward continuous improvement

  • You will ensure adoption and practical use of WorkDay and other technology systems

  • Drive the transformation of Groupon’s performance management to move towards a culture of continuous feedback and coaching, using the right frameworks and tools

 

Talent Business Partner

  • You will partner with HRBPs to bring to life the people agenda for the North America Sales organization

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • Bachelor's degree

  • 7+ years of progressive experience in Talent and Leadership

  • Strong consulting skills and experience working directly with business leaders to identify needs and scope solutions

  • Strong organizational skills with evidence of successfully managing concurrent projects

  • Results-oriented and hands-on approach and a self-starter who can execute in a fast-paced environment with minimal direction

  • Demonstrates extreme comfort with ambiguity and ability to adapt prior experience to the Groupon landscape and culture

  • Polished and comfortable public speaker with experience in virtual delivery and webinars

  • Mature E.Q. and strong interdepartmental collaboration skills

  • Experience in a global, matrix organization

We're pumped if you have:

  • Master’s degree or advanced degree in Industrial/Organizational psychology

  • Experience rolling out global programs a plus

  • Excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal skills

  • Certification in Situational Leadership

 

 

Groupon provides a global marketplace where people can buy just about anything, anywhere, anytime. We’re enabling real-time commerce across an expanding range of categories including local businesses, travel destinations, consumer products, and live or lively events. At the same time, we are providing advertising options and tools that merchants can use to grow and manage their businesses. Culturally, we believe that great people make great companies and that starting with the customer and working backward moves us forward. Community matters to us on an internal, local and global scale—it’s fundamental to our company’s growth and to the well-being of the world at large. We also value self-awareness, candor, lunch and WiFi. If we match with you, please apply to join us.

An Insider's view of Groupon

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Groupon provides an environment where I can strive for maximum work-life effectiveness, room for growth, and there is always something new to do. I enjoy spending lots of time at work because I love what I do; the hours are not burdensome, Groupon fits me. I define success in my own terms & Groupon provides us with the flexibility to be successful.

Milan

Senior Manager of Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are working on arriving at the optimal attribution models across different areas of our business. For example, the attribution of a purchase to a specific experience — a home page feature, an email, a push notification — likely has a different window of time where we can reasonably say a specific purchase is a result of a specific experience.

Kristi

Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Here at Groupon, what you do matters. I got my start at Groupon as an intern and have had the opportunity in the past (almost) 5 years to build out a global volunteer program that has engaged over 5,000 employees in over 63,000 hours of service supporting the work of close to 650 nonprofit organizations.

Alicia

Program Manager, Employee & Community Engagement

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently, we committed to having 100% of our job descriptions reviewed for gender balance by the end of 2018. Also for 2018, work will continue with our Employee Resource Groups, who play a pivotal part in the attraction and selection of diverse top talent, and themselves can be developed and promoted into company leaders.
