Version 3

    RECHARGE HR - FOLLOW - November 12, 2015


    Under Armour itself is a model of innovation – founded upon one great thought most of us have from time to time, which is, “There has to be something better.” That’s exactly what Kevin Plank was thinking about the inevitably sweat-soaked T-shirts he and his University of Maryland football teammates wore under football gear. At the age of 23, Kevin set out to create something better – which today is Under Armour with sales in excess of $3 billion. With such rapid growth, how does Under Armour remain competitive for human resources? How do they enable their 10,000+ employees to contribute value and continue to grow the business? Well – in 2011 Troy Barnett created a plan. In collaboration with HR, Troy and his IT team wasted no time delivering on that plan. Today, their strategy continues to evolve, enabling acceleration of HR processes that support Under Armour’s business growth objectives. Learn how one company brought HR and IT together without breaking a sweat.
