Join us for our next Human Capital Exchange Book Discussion where we will feature an important new book for HR Leaders. The CHRO role has become one of the most important roles on the executive leadership team. Human Resources has been elevated to the C-Suite and with that increase in status has come increased pressure to perform. For that reason, a number of Fellows from the National Academy of Human Resources (NAHR) have collaborated on a book that offers the most current thinking on the evolving role of the CHRO. Today’s HR leaders must adapt to and address the demands of an increasingly diverse and demanding workforce, globalization, stricter regulatory requirements, increased accountability to the CEO and board of directors, and the complexity of leading the HR function with often limited resources.

This promises to be a high-octane discussion featuring several collaborators on the book. The Webinar will feature Conference Board Sr. Fellow and NAHR Fellow, Libby Sartain, and Patrick M. Wright, Ph.d., the William J. Conaty GE Professor of Strategic Human Resources in the School of ILR at Cornell University and NAHR Fellow.

Audience: Human Capital professionals charged with strategic workforce planning, workforce readiness, diversity & inclusion, talent management, strategic human resources, employee engagement, leadership development or human capital analytics
