biggest mover Tanith Dodge HR director of Marks and Spencer had recently joined the high street stalwart when she appeared in 20th position last year In a year her commercial focus common sense approach and influence at board level have resulted in a jump of 17 places While less visible externally than either Fairhurst or Chapman Dodge is described as a clear thinker and as a significant change agent not afraid to make difficult business decisions Her strength is in achieving buy in at board and line management level as well as pushing forward the CSR agenda within M S One former employee calls her a very dynamic lady great coach and innovator who challenges ways of thinking She was my boss a number of years ago and she really inspired me to be the best that I can Another describes her as clear and down to earth achieving great things in employee engagement to keep one or our national institutions consistently up there Another meanwhile praises her extremely articulate description of how common sense rather than intellectual theory drives great HR Other movers include John Ainley group HR director of Aviva up eight places and Graham White director of HR at Westminster City Council up nine Ainley s rise is all the more impressive given he doesn t feature in the past five years list He is lauded for firmly placing human significance at the heart of Aviva

the company and he s being put to the test and so far on the winning side Indeed many respondents believe McCarthy s approach to the strikes will have a major long term impact Like RBS the disputes with BA cabin crews will resonate for some time to come The impact on collective bargaining agreements and employee relations in general will be informed for some time by the way this dispute was handled says one respondent Another says Whichever way it goes this is a major change and landmark on the ER landscape Whatever he does now at BA will be remembered for some time Another high profile entry this year is Jean Tomlin HR director of London 2012 who debuts at number 29 Tomlin has set up and effectively run the scale up of the people side of the Olympics A great example of how HR impacts a business and in this case the country says one respondent Another professes such huge respect for someone who has to consider the longer term aim of maintaining drive and enthusiasm for such a large project with so much focus Her self belief and determination are hugely admirable The impact of recent events also shows in this year s Most Influential UK Thinkers list Will Hutton executive
