Director of Global Employment Brand and Recruitment - Gallagher (AJG)
Kayla Washington is the director of global employment brand and recruitment at Gallagher, a global leader in insurance, risk management and consulting services. The company was recently named for the 11th consecutive year as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies, according to Ethisphere. Kayla previously served as senior manager of employer brand at Change.org and has deep insight on today's top priorities in employer branding, including DEI, benefits and culture. She has a clear understanding of how internal engagement connects to the external face of the company and can easily deliver a creative, compelling strategy to solve any employer brand issue. Kayla started her early career in public relations with a passion for authentic storytelling. She believes her purpose is to help others realize that they already possess all the tools they need to be successful. In fact, she co-founded Intermixx because she wanted to give professional athletes a platform to showcase their passions off the football field and basketball court. Working with NBA and NFL clients, she realized that your personal brand identity is pivotal in determining your career path and aligning all professional opportunities. Thus her interest in employer branding blossomed. She believes that every company has an employer brand, whether it is a conscious employer brand is another story.
