Rita Hudson

Senior Director, Organisational Capability, Gold Coast Health

Rita Hudson is a HR-Nerd. Really, it is her passion and she has over 20 years in the industry.  She has worked across a number of industries from hotels, submarines, cars, and utilities to health services. A generalist HR professional by nature, she has worked as a HR business partner for multinational companies, publicly listed companies,  local not for profits and government agencies. With a proven track record in all areas of strategic and operational HR, Rita has a love of bringing best practise ideas to companies and localising them to set leaders up for success. She believes that HR is more than a business partner, but a in house leadership coach, on the front line supporting organisations to effectively manage human resources to achieve both their vision and strategic objectives. Rita currently is lucky enough to lead a team to deliver the workforce strategy, recognition and engagement initiatives, leadership development programs and inclusion strategies for Gold Coast Health, a workforce of over 10,000 clinical and non-clinical professionals who deliver passionate, sustainable, highly reliable healthcare to the Gold Coast community.
