CHROs on Board
The CHRO-An Underutilized Resource for Corporate Boards
Many of the NAHR Fellows are aware of an initiative that NAHR partnered with Jeff Hodge and Bob Lambert on regarding CHROs on Boards. Jeff and Bob, formerly with Morgan Samuels, now with Hodge Partners and Allegis Partners, respectively, worked with Jill Smart and Dick Antoine to do a research study about why there are not more CHROs on Boards, why CHROs can contribute as impactful Board members, what makes a CHRO a successful Board member, what we can do to increase the number of CHROs on Boards, and what CHROs and other senior HR leaders can do to prepare to be on a Board. Following is a link to the final write-up of the initiative. Please feel free to share as appropriate.
Thanks to the 36 Fellows who spoke with Bob and/or Jeff, and a special thank you to those who connected Bob and Jeff with CEOs and/or other Board Directors.

CHREATE – The Global Consortium to Reimagine HR, Employment Alternatives, Talent, and the Enterprise (formerly called the Future of HR Project) engaged a select group of HR leaders, consultants, academics, and professional association executives to determine where progress is most needed to advance the HR profession and its role in effective organizations. Volunteer HR leaders formed teams to advance pivotal arenas where accelerated progress would make the biggest impact on HR’s future readiness.
