While Chief Executive Officers are often responsible for workplace management, sustainability and signing off on big decisions, they often rely on CHROs for guidance. In fact, with HR roles shifting from an administrative focus to strategy development, Chief HR Officers provide an excellent support system for CEOs.
As the head decision-maker of an organization, a successful CEO must be able to efficiently identify potential growth opportunities and maintain confidence when implementing organizational change. But making strategic decisions that provide both internal and external value is not always easy.
This is when the CHRO comes in handy.
The CHRO possess a holistic outlook on company culture. Constantly having to innovate in response to shifts in workplace conditions, HR Executives have fine-tuned their abilities to not only initiate change, but also sustain it.
With similar leadership roles, it’s no wonder the CEO often turns to the CHRO for their expertise in team management and overall workplace awareness. With a foundation in business operations, paired with these already diverse skill-sets, your Chief HR Executive could make a great contender as a future CEO.
