Laura Fields
Sr. Director of Talent Selection & Acquisition
Charter Communications

The workplace has undergone massive change since Laura Fields joined Charter in 2018, especially when it comes to hiring new employees. Now imagine being responsible for the recruiting technology for a company with more than 93,000 total employees. In 2021, Fields partnered with Modern Hire to develop a 10-minute recruitment survey that gauges a prospect’s skills and

interests. She also created “Fit Finder,” a personality assessment that matches applicants with local openings in retail sales, customer service and technical operations. Fields’ meticulous craft while allowing her team to work as a unit helps them run “Laura Fields’ Mission Impossible.”

Christine Simmons
Director of Learning and Development

“The hungry will be fed,” is a common phrase said by WOW! Director of Learning and Development Christine Simmons, but it holds many different meanings. For Simmons, it’s a saying that encapsulates her commitment to enhancing opportunities within the company from all aspects. She launched WOW! Learning Workshops in 2021, giving employees the option to participate in 45-minute sessions designed to raise knowledge relating to WOW!. But the learning platforms don’t stop there. Simmons helped create online learning portals that are constantly refreshed with new training, exercises and more. Her initiatives stemmed into management when she built a leadership development program (LDP) that over 60% of WOW!’s leadership took part in. The LDP includes a five-step program designed to formulate high-performing teams. At the beginning of 2022, she launched another LDP that aligns with the ideas of sustainability, scalability and increasing reach. A hustler at heart, be on the lookout for another program to come soon.
