Join Senior HR Leaders at our 5th Annual BigHR Diversity & Inclusion Event

Connections. Connections. A Key to Reaching and Staying in Top HR Roles

Uncategorized Aug 07, 2020

Feeling stuck? Wondering what it takes to get to the top HR role? Join us to hear about Bala’s journey from an engineer to CHRO after working at world-class companies like HP and Coca-Cola. 

Bala Sathyanarayanan, CHRO of Greif, joins us to discuss his three career pivot points to CHRO and gives critical advice on what it takes to get to the CHRO role - that has nothing to do with HR skills. 

Born and raised in India, Bala shares how he transformed from working in engineering to HR, his move to the US, and finding the ambition to aim higher. 

Lastly, he gives a few simple yet crucial pieces of advice to help get the experience you want on your career path to CHRO.

This is a perfect opportunity to rethink how you are prioritizing your time and energy. Being heads down isn’t the path to get you there.

If you don't have time to watch the vlog post, here is the machine generated transcript. 

Enjoy! Cindy Lu
