CEOs and business owners in startups, high growth entrepreneurial businesses and other mid-sized organisations constantly struggle to hire and retain competent CHROs who address their Organisation and people needs and challenges, build their HR functions and offer sound advice, guidance and support.
While CHRO talent is extremely scarce, living without this competence costs them dearly.
