Starting with an overview of how SIG’s strategy contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and her belief that every HR professional creates social change, Suzanne shares the example of her work on human rights across the whole value chain, summarising leadership, cross functional working and measurement approaches.
Discussing future opportunities for the role of HR, Suzanne discusses techniques for reducing gender inequality and the connection to paying living wages, as well as an example of a new competency framework and how it supports what a company wants to stand for.
Calling on everyone in HR to dive into the ESG agenda, Suzanne encourages you to assess how your people practices contribute (or not yet contribute) and to get involved!
Topics in this episode:
- Human Rights due diligence
- Measuring progress with Ecovardis
- Cross functional working

Buy In – a People Operating System by The Clearing
This episode is brought to you by our good friends at The Clearing. They’d like you to ask yourself some crucial questions:
- How aligned are your people to your organisation’s strategy?
- How well do they understand their role in delivering it?
- And perhaps most importantly, how confident are you that they genuinely buy in to where your organisation is headed?
If these questions strike a chord, you’re not alone – many organisations struggle to put people at the heart of a brand or business change. But The Clearing is here to help you rewrite that narrative through the power of ‘Buy-in’. Whatever you’re trying to achieve, they can help you inspire your people through change, helping them feel connected to where your business is going, and empowering them to shape and deliver that future.
Buy-in is more than a concept – it’s the People Operating System for business and brand change. It’s about creating an environment where every one of your colleagues not only understands what you’re trying to achieve, but believes in it and acts on it. It helps your people become advocates. Clear about their roles. And ensures they show up for your customers and each other when it matters.
The Clearing believes that Buy-in is essential to business performance – especially during times of change or growth. If you’d like to find out more about how they could help you address your key strategic challenges through Buy-in, drop them a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit https://theclearing.co.uk/
