Head of People and Culture
Padam joined Stellar in January 2014, bringing 20 years of HR experience to the leadership team. Padam has worked across industries such as finance & insurance, consulting and information & data services, in multinational, ASX-listed, not-for-profit, partnership and Private Equity environments.
Padam’s passion is to continue to elevate the HR function to the role of business advisor to the Stellar leadership team.
In his role Padam is immersed in everything that relates to an individual’s journey with Stellar; focusing on recruitment, learning & development, performance, remuneration, incentives and culture. He’s also on hand to provide pragmatic and practical people leadership advice to leaders across Stellar to help them achieve their objectives.
Despite starting his Stellar journey with no experience of outsourcing or Open Book Management (OBM), he’s embraced both wholeheartedly. In fact, it’s OBM that is his favorite thing about Stellar, because of how it engages every member of staff. He says, “explaining the ‘why’ behind decisions ensures that our people feel that they have an impact on Stellar’s results and are making a significant contribution to the company.”
