Managing people on an enterprise level requires knowledge and proficiency in fields such as employment law, organisational development, industrial relations, workforce planning, trust and relationship building, and many more. This is what Shane Kelly brought to the table when he ascended to the Chief Human Resources Officer position at Eigigu Solutions Australia in 2019.
An emerging leader in the human resources space, Shane's track record speaks for itself. He spent the early years of his career assuming various roles, from workplace mediator, senior HR specialist, senior HR advisor, and HR superintendent for different companies, before finally becoming HR manager for Fulton Hogan and Pensar Infrastructure.
Shane spent a big part of his HR work with Fluor Rail Services, a Pilbara-based company providing rail construction and maintenance services. He started as a senior HR specialist in 2009, before becoming superintendent of HR and training just two years after. His focus areas at Fluor include strategic advice, inclusivity, work relationships, and cultural change.
Aside from the construction and infrastructure space, Shane had exposure to other industries as well, such as health, media, manufacturing, mining, and non-profit, among others. The wealth of knowledge he accumulated in his still evolving career, backed by a strong foundation in conflict resolution and organisational psychology, makes him one of the best leaders in the HR industry in Australia.
With a deep professional experience, the Griffith University alumnus also has a long list of educational and training credentials, which include accreditations and certifications on mediation, conciliation, project management, mentally healthy workplace management, construction safety, and more.
Shane describes himself as “results-driven” with a keen interest in developing capable people to reach their full potential. With him at the helm of human resources at Eigigu, the company is bound to see major strides in managing the workforce, which would ultimately reflect in the growth of the whole organisation.
