Lara Poloni, President of AECOM, spoke with the Financial Review about her career journey, working from home during a pandemic, and her vision for the company.

The conversation covered a wide range of topics and salient advice.

“You've got to trust your employees and give them that flexibility. And I think it's been repaid in spades," says Lara Poloni.

It is interesting to note that since Lara has taken on the global president role, she has been inundated with messages from young women at AECOM. In Lara's replies, she encourages them to back themselves, be bold and get outside their comfort zones, whether that be taking on a big job or moving to the other side of the world. She also tells them that there is no substitute for hard work.
