The 2020 list of HRO Today HR Superstars includes Molly Thiel, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for Cielo. This award recognizes innovative and transformative HR leadership across three categories: Providers, Practitioners, and Consultants/Advisors/Analysts/Academics/Investors/Thought Leaders.

“I’m deeply honored to be included on this list amongst such inspiring and hardworking HR leaders,” Thiel says. “This year my team and I focused on the human side of human capital when we moved our global office-based workforce to all virtual and navigated all that came with this challenging year. We focused on communications that balanced the need to understand what was happening in the business with the personal wellbeing of our teams, launched the Cielo Employee Fund to help employees facing financial burdens, used thoughtful and relevant conversations while continuing to advance Cielo’s progress in diversity, equity and inclusion, and more, all while continuing to invest in our leaders and technology for the future. I’m excited for the forward momentum to continue as we work toward building on all that our team has done to take care of Cielo’s people this year.”
