UNLEASH recently caught up with one of its HR Heroes to reflect on 2020 and look at what’s to come for the HR function in the next six, twelve, and eighteen months.

Naveen Bhateja, CPO at Medidata Solutions has been on the frontline of the COVID-19 battle, steering a ship that’s providing technology solutions for clients developing vaccines.

UNLEASH’S SVP of Insights George LaRocque spoke to Bhateja about COVID-19’s impact on his role, the challenges Medidata faced this year, and what key learnings he extracted from these.

During the discussion, Bhateja highlighted the importance of company culture. He explained why having a company vision was crucial and spoke about how Medidata’s previous digital transformation journey put the business in good stead to deal with incoming challenges.
