The CEO’s View of HR

July 4, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 10:30 am UTC+0

The role of HR has transformed significantly over the years from traditional personnel management to strategic human resources where HR managers are seen as Business partners. However to a large extent HR is yet to earn its space at the board room comparable to her peers in the business.

This forum will provide a platform to discuss the CEO’s perspective and expectations of HR, the level of HR involvement in business and the extent to which HR is playing a strategic role in the organization.

We interviewed a few CEO’s to get their understanding of HR Business partnering and their roles in making the HR function a success in organizations. Click the link below to see the interviews.
