Chief HR Officer Leadership Vision 2022: 3 Strategic Actions for Success | Gartner

HR Effectiveness

This 2022 Gartner Leadership Vision for CHROs reference outlines three top-level themes HR leaders should prioritize for 2022. They include: 1Navigating changing work trends to increase workforce resilience and improve the employee experience. 2) Focus on business-driving activities where senior leadership and the board needs guidance. 3) Move to a more dynamic operating model and upskill capabilities such as agile. Recommended actions are offered to enable these three areas. Page 8 provides a helpful framework titled Model of a World-Class CHRO. The model is anchored in five key areas: 1) Board’s Leader of Human Capital, 2) Creator of Talent Strategy, 3) Enterprise Change Leader, 4) Driver of Culture and Purpose, and 5) Trusted Advisor and Coach. Each of the five areas has examples of activities for HR leaders to focus on in their roles; a few of these activities are deemed ‘newly emphasized.’ For instance, under the CHRO’s role as “Board’s Leader of Human Capital,” CEO succession continues to be a key responsibility. However, new emphasis is placed on the CHRO’s role of ‘surfacing and responding to external trends’ as it relates to its interactions with the Board. HR leaders can use this reference as they solidify their plans for 2022.
