Liz McAuliffe

EVP of HR Liz McAuliffe explains how she carries the Un-carrier culture of T-Mobile through to the talent strategy.

By The Editors

Within one’s career, taking the biggest risk often comes with earning the biggest reward. Just ask Liz McAuliffe. While practicing as the in-house employment attorney at Starbucks, Jim Donald, the then CEO, asked her to take a risk by moving into the coffee company’s HR practice. And from that transition, she has been rewarded with a highly successful second career. McAuliffe is now the executive vice president of HR at T-Mobile, the self-proclaimed Un-carrier that is radically changing its approach to both its customers and employees, adopting a people-first strategy that listens first and acts second. McAuliffe has spearheaded this transformation, introducing a number of initiatives to better support employees in their personal and career growth—and drive business success as a result. Learn more here.
