There’s no denying that 2020 was a year of tumultuous change. The COVID-19 pandemic threw employers a curve ball, prompting businesses to rethink their strategies, their processes, and their priorities.
Through it all, HR was front and centre – leading companies through some of the most trying times imaginable. HR has gone from being a ‘nice to have’ to being recognised as an integral strategic partner – which makes this year’s Global 100 more important than ever before.
Now in our second year, and drawing from six markets - the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Asia-Pacific, and the UK – HRD’s annual Global 100 celebrates the best and brightest individuals our sector has to offer.
The leaders featured on this year’s Global 100 have been selected for their outstanding commitment to their companies and their people over the past 12 months. Across a myriad of industries and sectors, these HR leaders rose to the challenge – safeguarding their employees and helping the C-suite navigate a constantly changing landscape.
From accomplished academics, to thought leaders, to industry giants – this year’s winners deserve a round applause for helping make an unprecedented year not only manageable, but innovative.
Take a look at our 2021 selection below.
