2017 Game Changer: Jonathan DeGraff
“Jonathan continues to have a significant impact on our company and our industry, and his innovations in workforce management make him a true game changer,” says Nicholas Campagna of DeGraff, his HR partner at IBM.
Jonathan DeGraff is a model for transformation in the HR function, wrote Nicholas Campagna, regional HR manager at IBM, in his award nomination.
DeGraff’s accomplishments at IBM have been large and varied, including leading a successful employee engagement program, adopting social technologies to advance business, leading an executive shadow program and recruiting at Cornell University. A particularly notable HR intern program he led saw a record 86 percent job offer acceptance rate.
Laura Casale, program manager for IBM’s Global General Manager and HR Leadership Development Programs, echoed those sentiments.
