Top 10 Outstanding HR Executives to Follow in 2024
ON THE COVER
A Company’s Most Valuable Asset Is Its Employees
Too often, the HR department isn’t seen as strategic or relevant when it comes to running a business. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. When given the proper tools and the trust to be empowered and make decisions, HR can be one of the most vital voices at the table. HR teams who are in sync with employees understand engagement levels, understand company culture, and know how to get the best out of people. They always add tremendous value to their business.
At Beyond Exclamation we honor the work and journey of these HR professionals who do a great job daily with people management while leading some of the most important conversations at their respective workplaces. We dedicate this issue titled, “Top 10 Outstanding HR Executives to Follow in 2024,” to them. Featuring as the cover story we have covered the successful journey of Renee Mitchell, Chief Administrative and Human Resource Officer of Zing Health. In the dynamic and ever-evolving landscape of HR, one name stands out as a beacon of innovation and excellence, and it is Renee D. Mitchell, DM. Renee has carved a remarkable path in the industry, earning her a well-deserved reputation. While many HR professionals stumble into the field, Renee’s career trajectory was a deliberate choice. Amidst the uncertainty of changing her major four times during her undergraduate years, a career assessment tool recommended a path in personnel management, as it was known at the time. It guided the young Renee toward a few introductory classes in Industrial Organizational Psychology, where she found her passion for understanding how human behavior shapes organizational performance. Recognizing the complexity and breadth of the HR field, she felt a desire to master its various facets and their interconnections. Read more about her work and journey in this exclusive article.
