Panel Discussion | CHRO Development

8:20 AM - 9:00 AM CHRO 2.0 – The Path to Success

Today’s CEOs expect CHROs to be strategic partners and advisors, who can speak the business language from the perspective of talent strategy and talent data. With the economy largely becoming more knowledge-and service-based, talent has become a company’s most important resource and value-driving force. The opportunity for game-changer CHROs is to prescribe actions on the people side that will add real value to the business – actions which should be grounded in technology and predictive analytics, proving the ROI on human capital initiatives.

This inspiring discussion will focus on a forward outlook of CHROs, starting now: what the key components of a forward-thinking leader that will help shape the new organization in the years to come.

Topics will include:
•Creating the blueprint of next-gen leadership
•Working with multi-geographical, knowledge-based, and inter-generational workforces
•Agile application of big data for key decisions
•Implementing new technologies to increase HR impact
•Leveraging predictive analytics to help re-design the organization of the future
•Championing a culture of transparency, empowerment and digital enablement

10:55 AM - 11:45 AM CHROs and the Board of Directors: Candid Conversations

As CHROs continue to raise their profile in today’s organizations and increase their influence within the C-Suite, there is another aspect of success that is still not given much attention to: the role of the CHRO with the Board of Directors. The CHRO has a privileged outlook of the entire organization across business areas, and can effectively add a significant range to the conversations around talent risks and opportunities. CHROs who succeed in this endeavour become competitive advantages to the Board.

Very few CHROs, however, have been exposed to and able to gain this kind of experience. For that to happen, there is much work to be done in terms of changing old beliefs and perceptions of what is a truly transformational HR, and raising the bar within HR’s performance.

This discussion will focus highlight what skills HR leaders need to acquire if they are to become that well-rounded and high-performing business partner:

•Practical tips on ‘dos and don’ts’ based on real life scenarios of CHROs who were part of Boards
•Leveraging CHROs unique contributions to the business
•Increasing governance by influence and becoming business advisors
•Combining strategic HR capabilities with strong business acumen
