Elizabeth Casanas

Casanas may be new to Showtime, but she’s wasted no time in setting forth her goals at the company. She recruits talent externally, but also focuses on team building and executive coaching internally. For example, she’s involved with executive management in the deployment of key business initiatives, including corporate retreats. Efforts to recruit new employees can be challenging for HR execs, she notes. “We all try very hard to attract diverse candidates so that our employees reflect our audience; however the pool of candidates at varying levels is limited so we’re all vying for the same people.”
