Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO)

Develop and oversee a talent and training strategy

One of the CHRO's chief tasks is to design and carry out a talent strategy that encompasses recruiting, hiring, developing and retaining employees.

That strategic planning process includes HR disciplines such as talent acquisition and management, succession planning and employee training using learning management systems.

The CHRO should have a strong understanding of the difference between good and great talent, and be able to foster a self-renewing stream of leaders. In this part of their job, CHROs in larger enterprises often lead initiatives related to the selection and use of talent management software.
