Episode 63: Moving from passive to active: Gary Kildare, Non-Exec Director and former CHRO IBM Europe
Sharing insights from multiple Board of Director roles and a career in HR, Gary discusses a shift in approach with Chief Executives leading on businesses’ role in society, how this provides their competitive edge, and what this means for people strategy.
Discussing how measuring can create progress, Gary advocates that in respect of targets we all need to be a bit impatient, and provides examples of measurement enabling positive change in areas such as hiring and promotion.
Advocating that we move from passive to active, from by-standers to up-standers, Gary reminds us that change starts with us and that HR leaders must show they’re different.
