HR and CEO: The Most Critical Relationship for Success in 2021

This year has forever changed the role of HR. All of the change and uncertainty has shed a light on the importance of having an intentional people strategy. If it wasn’t clear before, taking care of your people and ensuring they have the right resources is critical to achieving business objectives. As we head into 2021, HR leaders and CEOs must work together and align their business and people strategies. In this conversation, we'll pull back the curtain on the thinking of leaders in both of these roles–and what a successful partnership looks like. Emplify’s CEO Santiago Jaramillo and Chief People Officer Adam Weber will be sharing their perspectives on what's needed to set up your organizations and people for success. They’ll discuss: decentralizing people initiatives and enabling managers to create engaged cultures; how HR and C-suite teams should work together to achieve business excellence; and the new way of thinking about talent development.


This session is hosted by the From Day One editorial team and moderated by Lydia Dishman, a writer and editor at Fast Company, with support from Emplify.

From Day One is a Recertification Provider for SHRM and HRCI. This session is eligible for 1 PDC. The Activity ID will be sent to attendees after the conclusion of the session.
