Finding Balance: Accelerating HiPo Talent in a People-First Culture
Consumer expectations of corporations are changing rapidly – as are those of their employees. To drive connection and growth, the most innovative organizations are heightening the focus on putting their people first. At Nike, we are on a transformational journey and working to build a culture of purpose and belonging in which all employees can thrive. At the same time, we are putting more rigor and objectivity into our talent decisions to ensure we have the best leaders in place for the future. This session will focus on how Nike aims to balance these seemingly competing priorities. We will discuss our approach to identify and accelerate our highest potential talent while creating a transparent and level playing field on which everyone can build a great career.
