HR executives and other experts share their views on how the role of Chief Human Resources Officer is taking on greater influence within the C-suite and board.

Part 2 of our three-part series on the evolving role of the Chief Human Resources Officer examines the growing influence of HR executives, particularly in strategic decision-making.

This view is especially prevalent in professional services and education, where people are the business’s main asset.
