Creating New Beginnings for colleagues of a site closure

When Pfizer Global Supply decided to close their Sydney manufacturing operations over five years, they needed to maintain supply of critical medicines to SE Asia whilst managing the transfer of production activities to international Pfizer sites. Project Hajime (New Beginnings) was born, an organisational cultural program supporting, engaging and retaining colleagues during the Sydney site exit period, which ultimately allowed continuity of supply to patients and the successful delivery of the Pfizer Global Supply strategy to close Sydney operations whilst acknowledging the legacy that colleagues were leaving.

Speaker: Vanessa Craze

Vanessa Craze joined Pfizer Australia in 2014 shortly after the closure of the Sydney manufacturing had been announced. Her role as HR Manager was to partner with the Site Leadership team to implement the change management strategy which supported colleagues during the closure of the site over the next 4 years, whilst maintaining supply of quality medicinal products to patients. Prior to joining Pfizer, Vanessa had been HR Manager at Tatts Group and NSW Lotteries through the merger and acquisition of NSW Lotteries by Tatts Group. Vanessa has experience in multiple private sectors industries, including pharmaceutical, gaming and aviation, as well as local and state government.
