Carbon Health, a leading national healthcare provider, today announced the appointment of Uzair Qadeer as Chief People Officer. Qadeer will lead all end-to-end human resources capabilities including talent management, employee experience, benefits, and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB). His successes in guiding high-growth organizations equip him to help usher Carbon Health through nationwide expansion in its mission to make high-quality healthcare accessible to everyone.
“Both Uzair and Carbon Health share the same vision to create a meaningful environment where all people – employees, providers, clinicians, and patients – feel a deep sense of belonging and drive to improve the health of our communities,” said Eren Bali, co-founder and CEO of Carbon Health. “As we continue to transform our patients’ lives across the country, I believe that focusing on the experience of our Carbonauts will help us differentiate not only as an employer of choice but also as an innovative and patient centric healthcare provider.”
Qadeer believes that the future is moving away from human resources to human experience, which is the sum of employee experience, patient experience, and digital experience. Creating these connections gives employees better insights into patients’ needs, which allows employees to better serve patients and in turn, yield financial results that can be leveraged to reward employees. Qadeer is uniquely suited to drive a differentiated employee experience and strong company culture as Carbon Health, which was #2 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list, grows to more than 90 clinics across 14 states and 2,000 full-time employees.
Prior to Carbon Health, Qadeer was Chief Diversity Officer at Alexion Pharmaceuticals where he served on the company’s executive management team. Before that, he served as a leader in Deloitte’s human capital consulting business where he focused on redefining every aspect of HR, including organizational development, culture, and talent management. Qadeer also worked at Bristol Myers Squibb in various roles of increasing responsibilities both in the U.S. and in Italy. Qadeer has a track record of helping organizations lead with innovative HR efforts. Qadeer, who also serves on the Board of Directors of Human Resources Leadership Forum, was recently named one of the Top 100 Chief Diversity Officers by the National Diversity Council and was called a “HR Futurist” by American Healthcare Leader Magazine. Qadeer received his master’s degree as well as his B.A. and B.S. degrees from Pennsylvania State University.
“I am energized by Carbon Health’s mission to make healthcare accessible to everyone by reshaping the patient experience through innovative technologies,” said Uzair Qadeer, Chief People Officer at Carbon Health. “I believe that by curating an exceptional employee experience at Carbon Health, and developing a meaningful connection between our employees and our patients, we will turbocharge our journey towards making great care accessible. A chance to be a part of, and help lead, such a powerful and exciting movement is simply irresistible.”
