The pandemic has thrust the human resources function centre stage, the pivotal role of the Chief People Officer in this crisis has been likened to that played by the Chief Financial Officer, during the global financial crisis.

HR has thrived during this difficult time in organisations where the function is well led, has strong senior stakeholder equity, has prioritised employee wellbeing and has robust capability in people analytics. If anything, this has raised expectations of Chief People Officers even further, can they and the functions they lead evolve at the pace necessary to deliver on the expectations of Leaders and the workforce?

I can’t think of two better people to debate this topic than my guests on this special bonus episode. Arianna Huffington is the Founder and CEO of Thrive Global, the Founder of the Huffington Post and the Author of 15 books, including most recently “Thrive” and “The Sleep Revolution.” In 2016, Arianna launched Thrive Global, a leading behaviour change tech company, with the mission of changing the way we work and live by ending the collective delusion that burnout is the price we must pay for success.

Arianna is joined by Donna Morris, Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer for Walmart. As a member of The Executive Committee, Donna is responsible for attracting, retaining and developing talent for one of the world’s largest private employers. Donna joined Walmart just before the start of the pandemic from Adobe, where she served as Chief Human Resources Officer and Executive Vice President of Employee Experience.
