Sustainability and HR – The NTT Story

The responsibility for the future of our planet has moved from an individual burden to one that organisations worldwide are embracing. How does this affect People and Culture leaders today? Where does HR stand in the discussion? Do they have a seat at the table as strategic business plans are drawn up?

Managing Director Tim Rayner continues his Conversations with HR Leaders, where he speaks to senior HR leaders around the world about how their organisations tackle sustainability and where HR fits into the equation.

In this episode, Marilyn Chaplin, Chief Human Resources Officer at NTT Ltd., talks about how NTT defines sustainability, HR’s role in the development and its influence on employer branding. She also has some candid advice for HR leaders as they take on this challenge.

As CHRO at NTT Ltd., Marilyn leads and develops a strategy that enables the execution of a new global operating company’s vision and the realisation of its long-term business objectives. Until recently, Marilyn also led NTT Ltd.’s sustainability portfolio, enabling its people and the business to help protect, restore and regenerate natural ecosystems for which all living creatures depend.
