HR event: Why the CEO can't do it without you
Singapore - The emerging role of the HR leader as a crucial confidante and advisor to the successful CEO has been highlighted this week by some of Singapore's most influential professionals.
The critical relationship between HR and senior management was at the heart of discussion during the "The Best of HR & CEO Partnerships" event, the latest in the Human Resources' series of Roundtable discussions, held yesterday at OTTO Ristorante.
The Roundtable had brought together HR heavyweights from companies including McDonald's, Nokia Siemens Network, Kraft, American Express, and SAP. SMRT, Manulife and IBM (see full list below). The HR leaders concluded that while CEOs possessed the capabilities and competencies to succeed, it was their relationship with key internal business partners that determined theirs and the company's success.
It was the HR director who could help the CEO see the business from a human capital perspective, and help them understand that by doing so they could create very productive outcomes including tangible bottom line results.
"The Best of HR & CEO Partnerships" event was made possible by BTI Consultants, and marks the launch of BTI Consultants' own HR Thought Leadership Forums series for 2011.
For comprehensive coverage of the event, see the April edition of Human Resources magazine, which includes a four-page write up.
