The value proposition in the relationship between companies and employees is changing. A company's prestige or pay scale is not at the center anymore; people are. Toptal’s Chief People Officer Michelle Labbe speaks about this with Eric Hutcherson, Executive Vice President, Chief People and Inclusion Officer of Universal Music Group (UMG).

Eric Hutcherson earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from New York University and a master’s degree in sports management and administration from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He worked in sports marketing, public relations, and HR for several companies, including the Boston Celtics, Foot Locker, Marsh & McLennan, and the NBA, before joining UMG. Looking back at his journey, he believes that he was always looking for the best way to maximize people's personal and professional lives.

Hutcherson, who specializes in people and culture at UMG, gave his thoughts on this change in value proposition and how companies attract talent by emphasizing their focus on diversity, inclusion, and belonging. He also talks about how and why companies must earn their employees' commitment, the four questions to determine if a company deserves people's greatness, and more.
