Katy George leads McKinsey & Company’s Mid-Atlantic Office of 550 consultants as well as the Firm’s global committee for Partner evaluation, which reviews over 1000 partners annually. In recent years, McKinsey has rapidly responded to new demands from its clients and from the talent it seeks to recruit and retain. Clients are demanding greater functional, digital, and analytics expertise; and top talent is demanding much greater flexibility and personalization in career pathways. Katy will talk about McKinsey’s journey to increase the confidence, performance, flexibility, and breadth of capability of McKinsey’s consulting staff through a shift to Strengths-based evaluation and feedback and to increasingly personalized career paths. Katy will also speak to McKinsey’s efforts on Diversity and Flexibility, and the increasing diversification of its recruiting sources and strategy.
