The effective use of human capital resources has become a CEO priority. Research shows that best-in-class organisations are those that typically engage in strategies to improve leadership effectiveness, build a performance culture, up skill the workforce, and raise employee engagement. No wonder then that CEOs are challenging their Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) and Chief Human Resource Officers (CHROs) to work closer together to build an operationally agile and high performing organisation. In today's challenging business environment, cross-functional collaboration is more important than ever. No partnership can have a more immediate impact on corporate performance as when CHROs and CFOs work together.
