Uncategorized Aug 07, 2020
 

Feeling stuck? Wondering what it takes to get to the top HR role? Join us to hear about Bala’s journey from an engineer to CHRO after working at world-class companies like HP and Coca-Cola. 

Bala Sathyanarayanan, CHRO of Greif, joins us to discuss his three career pivot points to CHRO and gives critical advice on what it takes to get to the CHRO role - that has nothing to do with HR skills. 

Born and raised in India, Bala shares how he transformed from working in engineering to HR, his move to the US, and finding the ambition to aim higher. 

Lastly, he gives a few simple yet crucial pieces of advice to help get the experience you want on your career path to CHRO.

This is a perfect opportunity to rethink how you are prioritizing your time and energy. Being heads down isn’t the path to get you there.

Check out this short VLOG post with Ashton Jeffries, Associate Director of Corporate Engagement at Year Up.org to learn about the opportunity divide and how YearUp.org is helping young adults prepare for the jobs that are needed in corporate America today.

HR Benchmark Survey 2020 Results

Uncategorized May 25, 2020
 

After continuously hearing that HR struggles to find time for strategic work, we wanted to gather data that would help HR leaders build a business case for more resources and “by George I think we’ve done it!”

We took a different approach to the traditional benchmark surveys that only analyze the current state data. We think that approach is flawed when the entire HR profession seems so understaffed. So, we also asked HR leaders to provide self-analysis through two key questions:

 The results showed that the understaffed HR leaders have a very good idea of the resources they need in order to have more time to be strategic:

 

  • Those who felt they are “not adequately staffed” stated on average they needed 15% more staff and as much as 49% more for small companies.

 

  • No surprise...
