New beginnings: a social media connection launches a new career
LinkedIn connected Jean-Philippe Gouin with a global recruiter searching for a director to reinforce an HR Consulting project for the Total Rewards practice in Deloitte France. An interview with the partner in charge of the practice and project and the hiring senior manager in Paris followed; then, Jean-Philippe did his due diligence.
On Deloitte’s website, Jean-Philippe read about the organization’s shared values. He watched a presentation by Philippe Burger, Partner, Human Capital, Total Rewards & Benefits, Deloitte France. Philippe described the project and the Deloitte management style—confidence in people and supporting them in their work—and Jean-Philippe knew he wanted to be part of the team.
“The idea of being part of a start-up project was very interesting. Philippe Burger’s point of view and aim to put together a strong team with a high level of expectations appealed as well,” says Jean-Philippe. “Everything I heard in that presentation and have experienced since joining Deloitte France, confirms that this is a place where exceptional and highly skilled people work together, share experience and knowledge, and deliver extraordinary value. I have had the pleasure to work with some very capable colleagues and strong leaders who respect and value all those people on their terms"
