Fractional Chief HR / People Officer

What is a Chief Human Resources Officer/Chief People Officer (CHRO/CPO)?

A CHRO or CPO is a senior executive responsible for formulating and executing human resource strategy in support of the overall business plan and strategic direction of the organisation. Their role encompasses a wide range of functions including talent acquisition, learning and development, performance management, compensation, benefits, organisational development, and employee engagement. In recent times, the title “Chief People Officer” has gained traction to emphasise the focus on overall employee experience and well-being, not just traditional HR functions.
