Hamdi Ulukaya, the founder and CEO of leading Greek yogurt brand Chobani, says he is evangelizing the idea of a so-called ‘CEO playbook’ to shift some of the focus from shareholder wealth and profits to employee welfare and humanitarian goals. In a TED Talk in Vancouver in April, Ulukaya said that the private sector is better equipped than governments and international organizations like the U.N. to solve global crises like income inequality, climate change and migration.
Ahead of World Refugee Day on Thursday, NewsHour Weekend profiled Ulukaya, and asked for more details about his vision.
