Wonder why CHROs fail ? Here are the top 5 reasons ... ( based on a quick survey with CEOs)

1. Their People solutions do not have any business impact

2. Their Programs are not data-backed studious solutions that tackle the COs real problems but only cloned programs. They are more in the nature of imitated best practices followed in other COs.

3. Their people linkage is weak. They are not as closely connected with their employee clients as Sales are connected with the market Customers.

4. Their employee advocacy is very fragile.

5. They are not strategic. They are rigid policy interpreters.

  4. Employee advocacy includes developing employees into competent resources…

2. Their Programs are not data-backed studious solutions that tackle the COs real problems but only cloned programs. They are more in the nature of imitated best practices followed in other COs.

( half the time, this is the easy path - cut and paste and copy the latest bright, shiny object in collusion between the CEO and HR!)

However, it would have been better to explain WHY HR heads are not in a position to do so, with your vast experience.

Yes I agree this rephrasing this question. All HR Heads have the challenge to manage the Talent Life Cycle effectively while ensuring internal customer satisfaction, employee engagement and also ensuring compliance. However, do the Top Management and the COX and Business leaders share the same vision and provide the required support. All the influences within the organization promote their own immediate need and it becomes a challenge for HR. For example, no organization structure is proposed and approved and requisition to fill positions are mandate. Leave aside approved organization structure no proper manpower planning is done even though proposed and implemented by HR. Basic as application through self service is not adhered to. The people management is a shared responsi…
