director of human resources for Australia and New Zealand

A speaker at the 2020 HRD National HR Summit, Lisa Onsley is the director of human resources for Australia and New Zealand at MSD. Unlike other companies that simply tolerate flexibility; at MSD, flexibility is celebrated. The company’s head office is even designed around flexibility. Under Onsley’s capable leadership, all employees are encouraged to “bring your whole self” to work, which has led to lower-than-industry turnover and extremely high levels of employee satisfaction.
