HR Works: How HR and EHS Work Together During a Crisis

In this special episode of HR Works Podcast, my colleague Justin Scace from the EHS On Tap Podcast joins me to interview an EHS and an HR professional from one of the largest private companies in the United States: Koch Industries, Incorporated.

Our collective goal is to better understand how EHS and HR work together, overcome challenges, and otherwise collaborate to make their workplace safe during a crisis.

Our guests are Walt Malone, VP of HR for Koch, and Sheryl Corrigan, director of environmental, health, and safety for Koch.

Walt Malone joined Koch in 1991 and is responsible for Koch Industries’ corporate human resources team and the global Market-Based Management capability which provides training and development services to Koch companies. He serves on the boards of Georgia-Pacific Equity Holdings LLC and Koch Business Solutions, LP, both subsidiaries of Koch Industries. Walt, welcome, and thank you for joining us for today’s show.
And we are also joined by Sheryl Corrigan, director of EHS for Koch Industries, where she provides oversight of Koch companies’ compliance with regulations and internal policy and tracking and ensuring follow-up on emerging issues. Sheryl was previously commissioner of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, advising the governor and helping set the strategic direction for the state on environmental matters.
