Become a World-Class CHRO

Tactical advice to elevate your role and lead the organization

CHROs need to be enterprise leaders, not just HR leaders

70% of CEOs expect chief human resources officers (CHROs) to be key players in enterprise strategy, but only 55% say CHROs are meeting this expectation. Even fewer CFOs agree (30%). Many HR executives are ill-prepared for this greater responsibility. In fact, only 20% of Fortune 250 CHROs have experience outside the HR function.

As a CHRO, there are a number of things prevailing now that weren’t an issue a few years ago. Gartner has really helped to connect the dots and help me understand what things need to be done to drive the best outcomes.
