How do we put people and purpose in the heart of our business?
Back in 2012, “Everyone thought we were going to die” says Joly. Eight years later, Best Buy was transformed as Joly and his team rebuilt the company into one of the nation’s favorite employers, vastly increased customer satisfaction, and dramatically grew Best Buy’s stock price. Joly and his team also succeeded in making Best Buy a leader in sustainability and innovation. But that's not all what Hubert Joly achieved other incredible turnarounds as a CEO of Carlson, Vivendi Universal, EDS France.
