Emerson, a global automation technology and engineering company, recently appointed Elizabeth Adefioye as its first chief people officer.

Adefioye, who previously served as chief human resources officer for Ingredion, will lead a newly-consolidated human resources function, including accountability for culture, employee experience, end-to-end talent management, diversity, equity and inclusion, acquisition integration, organization development and effectiveness, total rewards and HRIS.

She joins Emerson’s Office of the Chief Executive, which helps develop and guide the company’s global business strategies, at its St. Louis headquarters.

President and CEO Lal Karsanbhai said: “Adefioye is a proven leader with experience in guiding teams to success. Bringing in a leader of her calibre, knowledge and energy will only accelerate our efforts and reinforce Emerson as a destination workplace for exceptional talent.”

Adefioye led Ingredion’s culture transformation and development of a new purpose statement and updated values across the company.

Prior to joining Ingredion in 2016, she held human resources leadership roles at Johnson & Johnson, Novartis Consumer Health, Medtronic and Bristol-Myers Squibb.

On her new role, Adefioye said: “Companies can have the strongest strategy for growth, but if they don’t intentionally foster a culture that supports and empowers all voices across the organisation, that strategy will not succeed.

'I’m energised to see Emerson’s commitment to culture and look forward to partnering with Lal, the board and the entire organisation to continue advancing progress together.”

She is an ambassador for the Network of Executive Women, serves on the board of the Society for Human Resources Management, Skills for Chicagoland’s Future and is a member of The Economic Club of Chicago.
