“I love that I can bring my previous experience as an HR Practitioner to support organisations implement new technologies and adopt new ways of working.”
Sophie Day, Senior Consultant, Organisation Transformation
Share a bit about yourself, your role at Deloitte and the work you do?
I am part of the Organisation Transformation team, with a specific focus on delivering change management for technology implementations. My background is working in New Zealand as an HR practitioner in government. I love that I can build on my expertise to support organisations to implement new technologies and adopt new ways of working.
I try to exercise every morning before I start work to ensure that I get out, get some fresh air and move my legs. I coach and play netball on the weekends, which I absolutely love. We are incredibly lucky here in WA with the summer and the fact it never rains, so I love making the most of the summer weather and going to the beach every weekend, travelling down south to go snorkelling, fishing and checking out the wineries.
Why did you join Deloitte?
When I moved to Perth from New Zealand, I was ready for a change, and Deloitte caught my eye as a place where I felt I would be able to focus on the parts of HR that I loved – change management. Working in BAU HR, you don’t always get time to work on HR projects that make a difference as you are focus on delivering BAU.
Having experienced being on the receiving end of an HR technology implementation with no change management, I know what it feels like to experience significant change without the proper support. I came to Deloitte knowing what experience I wanted to provide to organisations so that when they had a technology implementation, they had all the support they needed to be successful and fully realise the benefits of the technology.
Why are you passionate about working in the technology change and adoption space?
I understand the importance of engaging with the workforce through technology implementation and the positive impact that a ‘no surprises approach’ has. I’m passionate about:
