Miranda Burgum, Head of People, Gail’s Bakery
Miranda joined GAIL’s Bakery as Head of People and Development in March 2017. Having worked for large organisations she wanted to experience being part of a smaller organisation in growth. Miranda was given a blank sheet of paper to set up the people function. She has successfully launched GAIL’s people strategy focusing on simplicity and landing people initiatives first time right. Miranda has provided clear processes for teams to attract and select the best, develop & engage teams through building a strong EVP, which in turn has seen a positive impact on internal promotions and increased retention. Miranda’s commitment is having a successor for every role.
