Congratulations to BBC tv HR Director Jabbar Sardar (£180k pa). He tops 2016 (hitting Number 19 in the list of Most Influential HR Practitioners produced by HR Magazine, a drop of 12 places on his ranking under his previous employer) by finding time to host the 2017 HRD summit at the Birmingham Convention Centre over two days at the end of this month. One presumes the host was chosen by the Advisory Board, which features Jabbar as a member.
(As we've noted, one key speaker is Valerie Hughes D'Aeth, BBC HR Director, and Number 2 in the 2016 list of Most Influential HR Practitioners produced by HR Magazine)
Where will Jabbar end up in financial year 2017/18 ? That's when BBC Studios, which will take the majority of BBC tv production staff, starts as a commercial operation - and when Charlotte Moore, as Director of Content, will have a much smaller operation, largely commissioners and sport ?
