McNeil joined the civil service on 1 January 2016 from Lloyds Banking Group, where he was the group HR director.
He is responsible for the delivery of the Civil Service people strategy, which sets out what the Civil Service needs to do to attract the most capable and public-spirited people.
The people strategy also aims to build a culture and ways of working that are as good, if not better, than anything on offer anywhere else.
McNeil provides leadership on a full range of people issues including talent, capability, inclusion, capacity, leadership, pay, performance, employee relations, culture and behaviours.
The webinar, run in partnership with Advanced, will look at how important the HR function has been throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and how organisations and business leaders will continue to turn to their HR professionals to steer them into whatever the ‘next normal’ phase will look like.
The roadmap out of lockdown is an opportunity for HR to lead from the front, bringing employees and organisations together as a unified and profitable entity.
McNeil will join Vicky Robinson, workforce strategy and culture leader at PwC, Marsha Dixon-Terry, career and leadership coach and organisational development consultant, Alex Arundale, chief people officer at Advanced and HR magazine deputy editor Beau Jackson.
The HR Lunchtime Debate will take place on 25 May at 12:30pm.
