Gabriela Mauch joins the Productivity Lab following a career focused on organizational effectiveness, leadership, and design at management consulting firms including McKinsey & Co. and KPMG LLC. Gabriela shifted from consulting into the corporate world when she sought opportunities to bring organizational strategy and solutions to life. After taking the opportunity to help stand up McDonald’s first Organizational Effectiveness & Leadership Center of Excellence, she worked across the McDonald’s system to improve its business performance through implementing solutions that empowered employees, improved processes, and leveraged technologies that kept McDonald’s relevant in the digital age. Gabriela finds herself constantly gravitating towards new ways of advancing the world of work; recognizing that the importance of productivity in the workplace extends far beyond business performance; she feels a deep connection to her work as it relates to employee wellbeing and engagement. Gabriela received her BS in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University.
