  • CHRO of the Year Ready, Set, Innovate!

    This year’s CHRO of the Year Award finalists are leading the charge in total HR transformation.

    By Marta Chmielowicz

    What makes a great CHRO? Well, that depends on who is asked. But while each response may highlight a key capability of a CHRO, they all have a common thread: the ability to innovate and inspire meaningful change. And this skill is mission-critical, for according to research by Randstad Sourceright, 84 percent of HR leaders say that the work they do prepares their organization for the future. HRO Today’s 2018 CHRO of the Year Awards honor the top HR leaders that are innovating for the future. Here are this year’s finalists.

    Without the right talent in the right positions, businesses are unable to move forward with their strategy for the future. In fact, according to LinkedIn’s 2017 Global Recruiting Trends report, 83 percent of HR leaders say that talent is the number one priority for their organization. That is why innovative leadership in the talent acquisition function is so essential to business success, and why HRO Today recognizes the most innovative leaders in the HR space with its annual Talent Acquisition Leader of the Year Awards.

  • HRO Today Forum 2018 Connecting the Dots

    Strategy, agility, and technology are key themes of the 2018 HRO Today Forum sessions.

    By Marta Chmielowicz

    HR leaders are facing sweeping changes across the entire business landscape. Constantly evolving technology and profound demographic shifts are disrupting the industry, changing workplace cultures, and revolutionizing the way work gets done. In today’s talent market, transparency and agility are key—and in order to compete, business leaders must question even their most basic assumptions about what employees want. If they are to succeed, they must develop new approaches to attracting, retaining, and engaging top talent.

  • Total Workforce Solutions Breaking Down Barriers

    Embrace the future of talent with a total workforce solution.

    By Marta Chmielowicz

    Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all sourcing, recruiting, and hiring. The gig economy is on the rise, the workplace is becoming more diverse, and top talent is increasingly hard to come by. But even as skills shortages become the norm and attracting talent grows more difficult, organizations are gearing up their hiring efforts to position themselves for future success. In fact, LinkedIn’s Global Recruiting Trends 2017 study reports that talent is the top priority for 83 percent of executives, and 56 percent of organizations are planning to increase their hiring volume in 2018.
