Insightsoftware hires chief HR officer

Insightsoftware, a global provider of financial reporting and performance management solutions, has appointed Laura Hanson chief human resources officer (CHRO).

In this role, Hanson will lead the organisation’s global HR strategy to improve operational effectiveness and align with its business priorities as it continues to grow.

Having led high-performing human resources teams at global organisations and bringing more than 25 years of experience with her, she will work with the global HR team and senior leaders to design programmes that focus on staff training and development, as well as increasing employee engagement, retention, and recruitment.

Hanson recently served as CHRO for Sphera, a provider of environmental, social and governance performance and risk management software, data, and consulting services. Throughout her career, she has also worked with several technology organisations to lead people teams that manage all aspects of HR.

Jim Triandiflou, chief executive officer of Insightsoftware, said that since its inception in 2018, the business has grown 10 times in revenue and team members, now having more than 2,400 team members, of which more than half work outside the United States.

“Managing a global workforce is an essential ingredient to our success. As we continue our growth, [Hanson’s] extensive global experience, clear vision, and strong leadership skills will help us attract, grow, and provide a career-defining experience to our team members,” he said.

Hanson added: “A world-class customer experience is the result of a world-class employee experience. I look forward to empowering employees, supporting the organisation’s inclusive, meaningful, and positive work environment, and attracting best in-class talent.”
