Where in the World Wednesday! Featuring: Ruth Harris 3/25/15

Ruth Harris, ’96 MA-HRIR, is currently in an HR Leadership role at General Mills. “General Mills competes in an extremely dynamic marketplace of packaged food– this requires constant pivots in my work and a sharp eye out for new opportunities to advance the organization,” she says. Ruth travels about twice a year to one of the General Mills markets around the world. In the past year or so she has visited the company’s technical teams in China, Brazil and France. She heads back to Europe next month with stops planned in Switzerland, France, the UK and Spain. She visits teams in markets that don’t interact as directly with their base in Minneapolis. As an HR professional, Ruth strives to stay connected to her employees at all levels and all locations to maintain credibility and engage employees worldwide.
“I am very fortunate to have found a career that allows me to follow my passion of helping people and organizations grow and businesses succeed, and at the same time have a rich personal life full of supportive family and friends,” she says.
