CHRO Global Leadership Board

Pillar 3: Delivering on the HR Strategic Promise

The third pillar is about partnering with the business to drive and maximize business performance. 

For chief human resources officers (CHROs) to stay future-focused and engage at the appropriate level with the CEO, executive committee and board, they need to build an effective team of capable HR leaders.

The third pillar supports midlevel to senior-level HR leaders responsible for driving talent strategy in partnering with the business to maximize performance. This allows CHROs to focus on more strategic, high-impact activities. 

To maximize performance, these HR leaders must partner with the business to:

  1. Create a people strategy that drives performance
  2. Execute on the people strategy
  3. Maintain continuous alignment with the strategy

While most organizations view business strategy as an input into people strategy, the most progessive organizations lead with people strategy and capabilities in order to shape business strategy. When done well, people strategy and business strategy are one and the same. 

Playbook for Delivering on the HR Strategic Promise

The purpose of this playbook is to provide practical guidance to mid- and senior-level HR leaders (e.g., HR business partners, division HR leads and heads of talent management) responsible for driving talent strategy on how they can partner with the business to maximize performance.
