Veolia ES Technical Solutions President and CEO Jim Bell has won 2012 Leader of the Year through The Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC).

The annual Leader of the Year award program honors one Chicago-based business leader who has demonstrated the ability to execute leading-edge human capital practices while realizing business strategy success.

The HRMAC board of directors says Bell was selected for his proven ability to lead by example, prioritize employees ahead of shareholders and implement successful human capital initiatives within the Veolia organization, a leader in environmental solutions in water managementwaste management and energy services.

“Since becoming president and CEO of Veolia ES Technical Solutions, Jim has embraced human resources programs and tools as business drivers rather than business requirements,” noted Katie Lawler, senior VP of human resources and HRMAC chair.

Some key achievements for Veolia ES Technical Solutions under Mr. Bell’s leadership include:

• Implementing new training and development initiatives to develop leaders at both the executive level and deep into the organization’s next generation of leaders

• The ‘President’s Call for Excellence’ quarterly award program, which recognizes employees who have demonstrated exceptional effort to aid a peer or a customer

• The open-forum ‘Breakfast with Bell’ project, held at Veolia operating locations to provide local employees an opportunity to ask candid questions and receive honest feedback.

“[Bell] has continuously demonstrated his commitment as an HR champion, including serving as the executive sponsor of the ‘People’ goal for the organization’s strategic plan and fostering a company culture that puts training, development and the safety of people at the core of its business practices,” Lawler said. “The company’s record-breaking financial performance for two consecutive years is a testament to the success of these efforts and Jim’s first-class leadership abilities.”
