Tina’s HR department helped the organisation shift its whole 9,000-strong workforce to a remote setup overnight when the pandemic struck. During the stretch of the lockdown, the team launched a COVID well-being hub to support the employees.
“At Deloitte, we understand the importance of creating a great talent experience for our people, where everyone is supported to be at their best,” she said as quoted by Consultancy.com.au, an online platform for Australia's consulting industry.
Tina joined Deloitte Australia in 2010 as Director of Talent Development and Diversity, where she led a team of learning and diversity professionals to design and implement organisation-wide strategies to support the company’s goals.
From there, Tina slowly climbed up the ranks serving as HR Director Consulting and head of Partner, People, and Performance, before assuming the top HR role in October 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tina graduated from Charles Sturt University in 1997 with a degree in Business and Human Resource. She started her career as HR Consultant in Placer Pacific before assuming various leadership roles at Optus’ HR Department.
She has been consistently tasked to head organisational initiatives on promoting diversity and equality among the workforce, cultural transformation, employee engagement, employee relations, and talent management.
