Episode 70 – Gio Twigge – IDEXX
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 2, Dave is joined by Gio Twigge, SVP & CHRO at IDEXX where their mission is to enhance the health and well-being of pets, people, and livestock.
Gio begins with more than a moment that changed his life, but rather a formative period of his life – the 70s and 80s living in South Africa during the height, and fall, of Apartheid as a gay white male. He describes how this led him to the HR path to make an impact in an organization and make sure employees don’t have a lonely experience at work.
Gio also describes IDEXX’s values for their 10,000+ workforce, their focus on driving innovation, the importance of a great culture in addition to a purpose and product, and a lack of hierarchy.
If you missed part 1, episode 69, Dave was joined by Barry Gale, SVP/CHRO at Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston.
