Chief Human Resources Officers keep the pulse of their companies. When adding the complexities of a twenty-first century work environment and workforce, these senior corporate executives are pulled in many different directions. Whether through recruiting or determining benefits and compensation, Chief HR Officers are charged with finding the right balance that allows the company to retain top talent while fostering an environment of innovation and growth. The following survey report was designed to provide greater insight to this group of executives.
This survey was conducted in connection with Consero’s annual Chief HR Officer Forum, an invitation-only event for leaders of HR departments from Fortune 1000 companies. The questions included thoughts on the top priorities for HR departments, the role of technology, the involvement of Chief HR Officers in other business functions, and the extent of fringe benefits. While this survey was limited to 47 individuals, the results yielded useful information that will help HR Officers tackle core issues over the year.
