CHRO of Zurich North America talk to HRD about the importance of embracing flexible work
It’s rare that a solitary HR initiative can be held up as a defining achievement for a HR professional with a number of years of service under their belt. Indeed, for Brian Little, CHRO at Zurich North America, it’s been three key interlinked achievements that will ensure his legacy will endure. The first came six years ago when Little channelled his career-long passion for leadership development into a project called ‘the Development Curve’. The project aimed to predict the value that talent would bring into an organisation based on the quantifiable rate at which employees typically mature within a role. The ripple effects of the project have been profound. Not only has it changed how the business and HR strategy are intertwined, but it has also shifted how the insurance giant invests in its employees.
