Naveen Bhateja (MBA 2007) has been recognised as one of 33 most innovative HR leaders.

Naveen is a Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) for Medidata, a technology company that develops and markets software as a service for clinical trials. Medidata played a crucial role in the fight against coronavirus.  

Naveen led the internal pandemic response called C.A.R.E.S (COVID-actioned resources enabling support) which provided additional tools, support and events for everyone.  

Naveen said "While HR leaders have always played a critical role, today, more than ever, CHRO leaders are on the front lines due to the COVID crisis and all the other events that took place last year". 

Going forward, Naveen plans to continue to support employees through times of volatility and change.
