The Evolving Role of the CHRO

Posted by Joe Marino

Agility, adaptability, and a little thing called grit, a.k.a a starter pack of the necessary traits needed in a Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) role.

In a recent roundtable hosted by Hueman that featured a panel of CHROs, the following question was posed: “What could the new normal mean for the workforce?” This question was met with another: “How do we thrive in times of uncertainty?” One answer: create resistance to manage through instability.

As panelists took the time to reflect on how their roles have changed during the pandemic, discussion highlighted the evergreen priorities that remain on the table but now carry a heavier weight: how do we protect the health of workers and continue to find creative ways to engage and retain them?

In the infographic below, we look at the evolving role of a CHRO and highlight some key areas of focus, like strategic initiatives in workforce development and cultivating a culture of inclusivity.
