2021 CHRO of the Year Awards

If people are a company’s greatest asset, then CHROs have a lot riding on their shoulders. From delivering a winning culture to introducing fresh recruitment strategies, they are stewards and strategists who are responsible for a company’s talent and performance blueprint—all of which drives the business forward. To honor the contributions of these incredible leaders, HRO Today is proud to present the annual CHRO and HRD of the Year Awards.
