Now more than ever, the Chief Human Resources Officer plays a crucial role in the workplace. This position is evolving rapidly to meet the demands of organizations spanning multiple regulatory environments. Whereas Chief HR Officers once focused on organizations’ human resources in one environment, today many oversee vast networks of employees on multiple continents and implement workforce development strategies on a global scale. CHROs are particularly important in helping companies handle the issues that accompany the expansion into new global markets, focusing on developing regulatory procedures to suit different regions while preserving a company’s core culture.
