We are pleased to announce Ragan’s 2020 Top Women in HR Awards has named Sharyl Givens, senior vice president of Human Resources, a Leader for her strategic excellence throughout an unprecedented year. Known for her guidance and trusted presence, every day Givens leads 100+ HR professionals to help ensure Proofpoint’s global workforce can secure the world’s largest companies.

Ragan’s Top Women in HR recognizes female executives leading the charge when it comes to performance management, diversity and inclusion, organizational development, talent recruitment and retention, compensation and benefits, human resources information systems, training and development, coaching and corporate leadership.

Givens exemplifies a true leader who drives her team to lead with purpose—and in 2020 helped Proofpoint retain top talent and succeed in a crowded market. Over the last 12 months, Givens has strategically placed people at the center of all HR initiatives to define a purpose-driven workplace and boost retention, including: expanding Proofpoint’s talent footprint across multiple regions, launching a new worldwide Workday resource center, and successfully transitioning thousands of employees to remote work in the midst of a global pandemic.
