As the role of the CHRO continues to become increasingly recognized as vital to organizational success, it was nice to see this list of the 2020 Top 25 CHROs, published by N2GROWTH. This publication recognizes CHROs who have shaped careers, culture, and talent at the world’s most innovative people-driven companies. Although this list is not all-inclusive, it does represent a strong showing of CHROs from companies such as Humana, Amazon, Coca-Cola, and Verizon, to name a few. Over twelve criteria were used to evaluate CHROs, including peer recommendations and interviews, impact on industry, and strong positioning of the employer brand. For each of the 25 CHROs mentioned, a summary of the CHRO and his or her impact is provided. Given the significant opportunities that CHROs and their teams will have to innovate over the next 12-18 months, I expect this list to continue to grow. For those who may have missed it, here is a link to a Spencer Stuart article that outlines the CHRO capabilities that are important now and in the future.
