More than ever before the business world needs strong HR leaders. The workforce in the developed world and China is rapidly aging. New, first-time workers are barely replacing workers who are retiring. And, despite increasing automation, in the next 20 years there will be a serious shortage of skilled workforce everywhere.
Earlier this year Visier sponsored two surveys:
A February 2015 study -- conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of Visier -- surveyed 301 corporate executives at companies with revenue of $1 billion or more across America and asked about sought-after HR leadership skills
An April 2015 report -- conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services -- surveyed 362 executives and asked about the changing role of the CHRO
In this webinar, Dave Weisbeck, Visier Chief Strategy Officer and analytics expert, will share the results of these two studies, which found that new HR leaders are expected to be:
Data-Driven: 80% of executives agree their company cannot succeed without an assertive, data-driven CHRO, who takes a strong stance on talent issues and uses real-time facts to chart their talent strategy.
Business-Oriented: 81% of executives say that when hiring new senior HR talent they value business acumen more than technical HR skills
Performance-Focused: 78% of executives agree that their company cannot succeed without a CHRO that takes on responsibility for contributing directly to business performance.
