"In July 2018, Hubert Joly presented the Purposeful Leadership Chair that he had decided to launch. Drawing on his experience at the head of Best Buy, his aim is to achieve a profound transformation of the way leadership istaught. The goal is to change the way in which we manage our organizations, with short-term profit no longer being the sole performance criterion for the company. Its environmental, social and societal impacts are all factors to be taken into account. Finally, people do not want to wait until they are 50 to give meaning to their life and to their work. How can all these elements be reconciled with each other? HEC can play its part by taking up position in the forefront of research, teaching and action in favor of a new kind of leadership. I feel totally in tune with this ambition, which I also see as one that can genuinely transform HEC itself. That is the reason for my support to the HEC Foundation."
