Meet The Careers Company Team
The Careers Company was founded by Meena Anand in 2021. As a former FTSE 100 HR Director she realised that there are so many employees unhappy with their level of career success (we know that this varies from employee to employee). Diverse employee groups in particular are often under-employed, have greater barriers to advancement, don’t have access to the same networks or just "opt out" of the workforce altogether. As a result organisations often fail to retain or fully leverage their very best talent. That’s a lot of disappointment.
It really doesn’t have to be that way. That’s why Meena gathered together a team of friends who are experts in the world of work, to change how career development happens in organisations. This team is the core of The Careers Company. We also work with a number of amazing associates. We have someone for everyone!
