From HRO Today:

We are living in an age of immense disruption. Digital transformation is a top concern in boardrooms across the world, with companies developing and adopting new technologies to reinvent themselves, deliver more value to their customers, and remain relevant in today’s high-paced business climate. Low unemployment and a candidate-driven job market are forcing organizations to reevaluate their approach to talent acquisition and people management. Globalization and an increasingly diverse and connected workforce are transforming the way businesses are run—and HR is at the forefront.

This year’s HRO Today Superstars have a proven track record of innovating, challenging the status quo, and redefining the new normal for HR. All the leaders featured on these pages have worked to deliver technologies, solutions, and strategies to uplift each employee while supporting organizational goals.
