12 Resources for Chief Human Resources Officers | Brian Heger

HR Effectiveness

The Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) role continues to gain prominence in many organizations. Over the past 90 days alone, I have tracked over 300 CHRO appointments as part of CHROs on the Goa subscription-based resource that provides insights into hires, promotions, and resignations to the CHRO role in organizations of all sizes and industries. These appointments ranged from experienced CHROs transitioning to the same role at another organization to first-time heads of HR, and CHROs appointed to an organization’s Board of Directors. As CHROs continue to drive personal, team, and organizational effectiveness, I have created this one-page PDF that includes 12 resources from which CHROs can draw. I have organized the 12 resources into four broader topics:

  1. Transitioning to a New CHRO Role. Provides resources that can help CHROs speed up their transition into a new head of HR role.
  2.  HR Strategy and Operating Models. Offers ideas for capturing aspects of HR strategy and design.
  3.  CHROs and the Board of Directors. Shares a few resources on talent and workforce questions Boards are asking about.
  4. CHRO Effectiveness and Other. Includes resources on determining if the CHRO has an all-star HR team, attributes of effective HR leaders, and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) best practices from CHROs at various organizations.

While I have shared many of these resources individually, I wanted to merge them into a one-page document for your reference. Each resource includes a direct link to the source article or report.
