Finding the right Chief People Officer was critical for Zume Pizza, an automated pizza delivery restaurant that uses robots for many stages of pizza production. They refused to settle, and were willing to take the time needed to ensure they found the right executive to lead their People Operations Strategy. As a former Chief People Officer himself, John K Anderson, who led the search, had the technology network, and the kind of specialization and credibility they were looking for. Using innovative, data-driven approaches for attraction, selection and engagement, the chosen placement has quickly made a big impact and been a trusted partner as they continue to grow. Zume Pizza couldn’t be happier with the result.
