How Rakuten’s Facilities Team Elevates Employee Safety

For Rakuten Americas, acquisitions have been a near-constant part of the company’s growth. As a result, there was an organizational need for a cohesive facilities team and a new approach to facility safety.

That’s where Donna Kelly, Head of Facilities, stepped in. Her priority: creating a consistent safety program so that each site would have the same playbook when dealing with emergencies and other exceptional circumstances.

On this week’s episode, Donna and Peter discuss:

  • Implementing consistent safety programs across all locations
  • Elevating the visibility of the facilities team to enhance employee safety
  • Personalizing safety communications to each site

Contact Donna on LinkedIn or at donna.kelly@rakuten.com.
