An Insider's view of Western Union

What's something quirky about your company?

As a #WULeader, I value our diversity. Through inclusive action, I’ve joined our Pune band, pride parades & theatre to understand employee & customer experience. With global teams, I’ve danced w/interns, cooked, learned words in other languages, dressed in local celebration attire, climbed a mountain & a rock wall & visited the wonders of the world

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

“I think the most creative ideas come from unexpected places. I encourage my team to invite someone new from a completely different area of the organization to our meetings. And I encourage my team to jump into each other’s team meetings. It is always amazing to see the new insights and connections that come from a fresh perspective.”
