All of the HR professionals mentioned on this year’s Hot List have demonstrated an ability to engage with people, and convince others of the value of their ideas and initiatives.
Anyone who has worked in HR in any capacity can tell you of the difficulties faced as part of the process. It doesn’t matter how brilliant their ideas are, there are stakeholders who will object, both internal and external.
The ability to unite and drive an idea from fruition through to completion is a powerful skill indeed. Another recurring theme among their notable achievements involves being people-centric experts with strong business acumen.
They also drove cultural and digital transformation across the organisation, leaving impact on the local, regional, as well as global level. Moreover, they’ve worked tirelessly to enhance HR’s reputation within the business and inspire team members to become effective business partners and leaders in their own right.
