Q&A | Sir Robert McAlpine HRD talks D&I and heritage

Sir Robert McAlpine HRD talks D&I and heritage

Karen Brookes has had a vast and diverse history in the HR field that’s taken her through organisations such as Yell (where she spent over 12 years in the people function) and the Cabinet Office, as well as the WYG Professional Services group. However, since 2017, Brookes has been utilising her vast expertise as the HR Director for historic construction company Sir Robert McAlpine, where she also sits on the Board.

To find out more about her history, and the work she’s doing with Sir Robert McAlpine, Brookes sat down with HR Grapevine to talk inclusion, marginalised groups and how to best create a positive working environment.
