HR in the Boardroom: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly?
May 26, 2016
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: Buckle down. 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 may have financial and criminal implications for board members. CHROs: Do your homework. Claim your power. The experts speak. Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose” (Dr. Seuss). Fabiana Lacerca-Allen, Ethiprax: “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs…” (Rudyard Kipling). Barbara Ocain, SAP SuccessFactors: “A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water” (Eleanor Roosevelt).
