ChapmanCG recently hosted a virtual People and Culture Lab for our collective HR networks. We featured two highly accomplished HR leaders: Soni Basi, Global Head of Talent at AIG; and Praveena Nathawat, Head of Human Resources, Global Operations & Technology, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. Soni and Praveena shared their perspectives on talent, engagement, and culture strategies in light of what transpired in 2020 and how organizations are adapting to a new normal in 2021.
Soni Basi Presentation
Soni Basi spoke about the challenges facing AIG and all organizations since COVID-19 struck and how companies are preparing themselves for the future of work. Areas Soni covered included:
- We are all used to operating in a VUCA world (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity). This has been a model we have been familiar with for the last 12+ years, but never more so than last year have we truly felt we have been living in a VUCA environment.
- Do organizations and people have the skills and experiences needed for today, and more importantly, are they developing the required skills for the future? AIG is focusing on five top skills:
- Talent Magnet
- Inclusive Leadership
- Data Fluency
- Careers are no longer a straight line. Organizations have hierarchies but work more in a matrix and project environment.
