What HR & the CEO want are the same things - yet being understaffed is keeping both from achieving these goals

Understaffed? Short on HR Budget? 4 Things HR Professionals want from their CEO, a rant by Cindy Lu based on the Entrepreneur article "4 Things CEOs Want from HR Leadership".

This post is in response to a 2016 Entrepreneur article by a CEO of a software company.  He writes about "4 things CEOs Want from HR Leadership". He starts the article by saying, “people are the biggest item on almost every company’s budget, and that CEOs consistently list talent as a top concern”.  Yet, rather than being seen as a strategically valuable, business-oriented leader, the head of HR is often regarded  as administration and compliance-focused.

Join me to hear from Charlene Li and author and expert in Digital Transformation to learn about disruption and what HR can do about it. Charlene is often asked “How do you actually thrive with disruption?”.  There are three elements of successful disruption: strategy, leadership, and culture. Strategy are those things that you can do and the things you won’t do. In business you cannot accomplish everything.
