The buzz: Buckle down – and buckle up.
Good news: Public and private company CHROs [Chief Human Resources Officers] are increasingly in the enviable position of gaining access to the board.
Not-so-good news: Many CHROs feel least prepared to talk policy, governance, and strategy at the board level, despite their higher-stakes role.
Why? With government policy focused on human capital topics, infractions could have financial and criminal implications for individual board members.
Message to CHROs: Do your homework. Claim your power.
