Episode 69 – Barry Gale – Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston

Culture, HR Strategy, HR Trends, Talent Management


Tune in to a special 2-part edition of The Hennessy Report, recorded live from the 2021 Maine HR Convention. Thanks to Bud Bernstein, President and CEO, for bringing everyone together.

In part 1, Dave is joined by Barry Gale, SVP/CHRO at Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston and on the Board of Directors at NEHRA alongside Dave.

Barry discusses their work as a bank for banks as they support their members’ housing finance, community development, economic growth, and affordable housing projects.

He describes the process of developing their values through a cross functional group of employees, their current focus on mental health and well being by injecting some fun via trivia contests, gift boxes, and more, and a successful internal internship program.

Listen to the end for a surprising tidbit you won’t find on Barry’s LinkedIn profile (but should definitely be added) in a conversation that carries on to Giovani Twigge’s episode, SVP & CHRO at IDEXX Laboratories, coming up next.
