The Human Resources function is charged with assuring that a company’s people strategy supports the business strategy. The leader of the function not only has to understand the key business drivers in the industry but also must know how to build an organization that will compete with the industry’s best to implement the strategic plan. He/she must help the CEO understand the competitive talent marketplace and be an expert in how to assess, motivate, reward, and retain the best talent possible.

The challenge in searching for the Chief Human Resources Officer is to find a true strategic business partner who also knows how to put the best processes and culture in place so that the company is competitive, efficient, and compliant with government regulations. Increasingly the CHRO must be experienced in managing remotely as administrative HR functions are outsourced and as companies expand internationally.
