A note from our editor

Welcome back to Insights Magazine. Before we introduce the newest issue of our magazine, we wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the events unfolding across the world. As the situation in Ukraine escalates, our immediate thoughts and concerns are with our colleagues and associates who have family and friends in the region. In light of the unfolding humanitarian crisis, we have established a core crisis team who are analysing how we can best direct our resources.

In this second issue, put together before the Ukrainian crisis, we’re examining the future role of the Chief Human Resources Officer, or CHRO. This role has become increasingly important, especially as workers around the world face unprecedented challenges both in the office and at home. Over the course of the pandemic, the role of the CHRO shifted in a unique way: In many organizations, The CHRO title is becoming the CPO, or Chief People Officer. How can leaders like the CPO help support employees to do their best work while also managing the shifting world of work and even supporting the increase in employee wellbeing programs?

Chief People Officers are seeing a transformation of their role. In this issue, we’re laying out some key trends for HR professionals in the coming months, the value of bringing emotions into the hiring process, the power of data and technology in people management, and more.

We’d love to hear from you and welcome your feedback and suggestions for future issues. Shoot me an email:
