CEOs increasingly recognise the importance of CHROs in a time of disruption and transformation to stay ahead of the competition.
C-suite teams, in particular CEOs, understand the real value of the Human Resources function. The right HR leaders with strong business acumen, strategic and financially savvy minds and operators capable of managing the human capital needs to ensure that business can retain, attract and develop people; to drive the business needs of today and the future. Companies undergoing transformation with the help of strong HR leaders to navigate change can significantly impact positive results in business performance and improvements such as better employee engagement, increase in morale, sales and productivity. To have a competitive advantage, companies must work harder with HR leaders to execute agile work processes, review and implement better work structures that make the best use of internal expertise and skills; supported by data analytic tools to assess performance and understand organisational gaps.
