Welcome to the Team, Timely’s First Chief People Inclusion Officer
We’re excited to announce the formidable Mary Haddock-Staniland will soon be joining us at Timely!
Mary’s remit will focus on progressing the hard work we’ve already begun to make workplace inclusion a top priority at Timely; ensuring all our people have equal access to opportunities and resources. Our internal data shows that providing a workplace where people feel welcomed, supported, seen, valued, and trusted is what job seekers, employees and customers expect and deserve; and we’re making it happen.
We need to ensure that both Timely and the 15,000 businesses we serve get to benefit from inclusive work practices; it’s not just the right thing to do, it’s how we’re taking Timely into the future.
This is the first executive-level role of this nature in any New Zealand organisation, and what a time for Mary to join us. As we launch into the next phase of our growth, we’re making inclusion a huge part of that.
We started making Timely an inclusive, supportive and flexible workplace in the early days because that’s the kind of company we wanted to work at. We learned that it’s not just about us. Owners in the beauty industry do business based on the same values of inclusion, so the more we invest in creating an inclusive workplace for Timely staff, the more business comes through the door.
Having previously held both senior HR and PR positions, Mary’s role will focus on elevating Timely as a global leader in workplace inclusion and engagement. As luck would have it, she’s also passionate about the beauty industry!
“I love the beauty industry and I’ve been given this incredible opportunity to combine my passion for people in this role. It’s clear from the mahi already being done at Timely that they have a genuine commitment to this kaupapa. Timely is a company where people do the right thing, and where doing the right thing is what success looks like. I’m excited to be a part of the Timely team, and to be joining them on the journey.” she said.
Mary Is leaving her role as Head of Membership Services at Diversity Works New Zealand where she has played a key role in building the company’s brand and delivering to their growing membership.
Mary joins us in December.
