SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--McAfee, one of the leading independent cybersecurity companies, won two gold awards and a silver award at the Stevie® Awards for Great Employers during a gala event in New York City on September 22. McAfee was awarded ‘Human Resources Team of the Year’ while McAfee senior vice president and executive board member, Chatelle Lynch, was named ‘Chief Human Resources Officer of the Year.’ The team also received silver for ‘Achievement in Employee Engagement.’
The awards recognize McAfee’s efforts and significant achievements in creating a standalone company following its divestiture from Intel in April of this year. With a focus on culture, employee engagement and retention, McAfee put its employees in the driving seat during the transition with many of the new systems, benefits, tools and processes a result of employee contribution.
“The journey to becoming a standalone company, with more 7,500 employees worldwide, serving more than 125,000 customers globally, has been nothing short of a herculean effort from our team,” said Chatelle Lynch, Chief Human Resources Officer at McAfee.
“Our people are at the heart of our business, and I’m incredibly proud of our collective efforts to remain laser-focused on excellence while executing with speed and agility. Our unwavering commitment to innovation, through the transition and now, is also testament to our hunger and drive to reach new heights,” concluded Lynch.
Judges commented on McAfee’s impressive achievements in a short amount of time saying: “McAfee has achieved in seven months a set of HR programs and initiatives which many companies do not achieve in seven years.” In addition to this Chatelle Lynch was commended for her “passion and focus to keep everyone engaged and delivering on such short time lines” and it was acknowledged that “Chatelle shows how a CHRO can play the key role in the transformation of a company”.
