Sasha has worked at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) for four years as their Senior Reward and Benefits Manager for the UK and Italy. Her responsibilities include compensation, employee benefits, well-being, payroll, HR systems, employee data and international mobility. URW is the premier global developer and operator of flagship destinations. They currently own and operate 89 shopping centres, including 55 flagships in the most dynamic cities in Europe and the United States. Within the UK, Westfield London (located in Shepherds Bush) is now the largest retail destination in Europe and Westfield Stratford City is the most popular shopping centre in the UK.
Sasha began her career working in HR Consultancy and has over 20 years of experience of working in reward and benefits within multiple industries including retail and financial services. She also has experience of working as a generalist HR Business Partner and was lucky enough to work for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in their Reward, Policy and OD function, later moving to the Athletes Village where she was their Workforce Operations Manager.
Sasha is highly numerate and analytical with a keen eye for detail and a passion for communication, which is displayed in the approach she takes to ensuring employees are always engaged, upskilled and informed on all things relating to reward and benefits. She has led on many large scale projects and has successfully designed and implemented numerous benefits programmes, reward initiatives and HR processes.
Outside of work Sasha performs on stage in amateur dramatic productions and enjoys the opportunity to put these skills to use in the workplace when presenting, training or supporting with corporate events!
