Bringing CHROs Together for Invigorating Idea Exchange

The Premier Networking and Professional Development Society for Top HR Leaders

Sensitivity, confidentiality, and insight are all requirements of great HR leadership.  In fact, the nature of most HR issues calls for the utmost discretion.  In perhaps no other role does the phrase “lonely at the top” describe daily life as well as it does for the CHRO.  There is no more daunting task than to help an organization get hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of employees aligned to common goals and cultural precepts in order to drive the bottom line.

Where do these HR leaders go for advice, support, and best practices?  There are few answers to that question that come even close to the many choices available for other C-suite officers.  That’s about to change.

In a landmark partnership, HRO Today and the Wharton Center for Human Resources have combined forces to create the CHRO Today Executive Network (C-TEN).  This professional
organization will provide CHROs with the resources that will continue to help them succeed:  professional development, innovation, best practices, and coveted resources.

The Wharton Center for Human Resources will work with HRO Today and the leadership of the C-TEN to develop curricula and research programs that address the pressing questions CHROs need to answer to be extraordinary in their jobs.
