Program Manager, Workplace Events (TEMP)

Job Summary
Good storytelling starts with great listening. At Our Client, that means each role and every project has our audience in mind. Because the same people who design, develop, and deploy our products also happen to use them. To us, that speaks volumes.

About the role
The Program Manager, Workplace Events will support the growing portfolio of internal Client events by ideating, planning and executing on innovative programming that includes brand activations, hub-based experiences and employee engagement activities in collaboration with cross-functional teams both locally and globally. With particular attention to our goal of creating impactful employee events and initiatives, this role will identify opportunities and develop processes to accelerate implementation and adoption of similar events globally.

Workplace Design & Experience (WDX) is a creative incubator positioned within the People & Places organization (HR/Workplace Real Estate & Facilities) leading efforts to reimagine our internal brand, develop inspiring and highly collaborative workspaces, and deliver innovative experiences that draw employees back to our hubs and fuel meaningful connections with colleagues around the globe. We are a small but agile team of Creatives and creative thinkers who continually imagine and invent, both inside our Client's organization and outside in our surrounding Newark neighborhood and the global communities in which we operate.

About you
You articulate the possible and move fast to make it real - a self-starter capable of taking initiative with minimal direction. By embracing ambiguity and connecting dots across teams and functions, you are able to solve for complex issues with both creativity and efficiency.

You are an exceptional communicator with the ability to convey intricate information in a clear, concise manner.
