67. How BNY Mellon Supports Employee Wellbeing and Resilience (Interview with Jolen Anderson)

BNY Mellon is America's oldest bank, having been created in 1784, and is currently on a journey of reinvention as it transforms into a digital organisation. The pandemic has accelerated this journey and that is where Jolen Anderson, my guest on this week's episode, comes in. Jolen is a Global Head of Human Resources and with her team, is responsible for translating their business strategy into their workforce strategy and igniting the passion of BNY Mellon's employees. As the business transformation was accelerated by the pandemic Jolen and her team are focused on three key driving principles. First, operational resiliency. Second, service to customers and third, employee wellbeing and safety. These three principles, not only underpin the digital transformation but the bank's culture too.

In our conversation Jolen and I discuss:

  • The central role of HR in business transformation
  • How employee wellbeing was prioritised during the twin pandemics of 2020
  • How resilience and inclusion are competencies that can be nurtured
  • The central role of people data and analytics in the work that Jolen and her team are doing
  • Why it is critical for CHROs to approach people transformation with intentionality right now and how to do this

This episode is a must listen for anyone interested or involved in the role of workforce strategy and business transformation. So that is Business Leaders, Chief HR Officers and anyone in a Strategy, People Analytics, Culture or HR Business Partner role.
