Sensitivity, confidentiality, and insight are all required of great HR leadership. However, the natureÂ of most HR issues requires the utmost discretion. In perhaps no other role does the phrase âlonelyÂ at the topâ describe the daily life as well as it does for the CHRO. There is no more daunting taskÂ than to help an organization get hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of employees allÂ striving to achieve common goals and cultural precepts. However, where do HR leaders go forÂ advice, support, or best practices? There are few answers to that question that come even close toÂ the many choices available for other C-suite officers.
For that reason, one year ago, HRO Today and the Wharton Center for Human Resources combined forces in aÂ landmark partnership to create the CHRO Today Executive Network (C-TEN).
The Wharton Center for HR has worked with HRO Today and the leadership of the C-TEN to address the pressingÂ questions CHROs need to answer in order to be extraordinary in their jobs.
In short, the C-TEN offers its members numerous benefits superior to the other programs offered. From collaborationÂ with other HR Leaders, to learning and setting standards and practices, HR executives truly have the opportunity toÂ influence and impact the industry. Members can also experience monthly discussion topics, research, best practiceÂ sharing, and an annual retreat.
C-TEN successfully launched last year with inaugural members from companies across North America. In additionÂ to C-TEN, our Talent Acquisition Leaders Executive Network Team (TALENT), a similar program for leaders in talentÂ acquisition, also launched this time last year. For more information or to join the C-TEN or TALENT groups, pleaseÂ contact Renee Preston at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course, the global HR association continues to grow and we are just wrapping up a successful year in achievingÂ 100 percent of our scheduled program work for this year. Iâll update you on metrics, accomplishments, and provide aÂ preview of what to look for in 2019, including our provider certification program, in the next issue. In the meantime,Â visit our website at https://www.hrotoday.com/association to learn more and join the association.
Thank you and have a great holiday!
