Accelerating the Growth and Development of the Future Chief People Officer

In a complex, ever-changing workplace, organizations face a new urgency to get the people equation right or risk being left behind. This pressing mandate requires that the chief people officer (CPO) of the future play a strategic role guiding the organization in designing and implementing the talent strategies and work options needed to fuel sustainable business growth. But to meet this mandate, there must be a collective commitment on the part of HR leaders as well as their C-suite peers, the CEO and the board to transform HR and radically reset expectations for the CPO role.

To better understand how this role is evolving, HR People + Strategy partnered with Willis Towers Watson on a research initiative to 
help senior HR leaders and their organizations chart a new path forward by exploring how rapid technological innovation and the democratization of work are expanding the role of the CPO.

In this webinar, Willis Towers Watson’s Managing Director, Ravin 
Jesuthasan and Global Business Leader, Suzanne McAndrew, will discuss our findings. They will discuss how the role is evolving, and the capabilities, skills and behaviors required to enable organizational capability and performance in the new world of work and the call to action for HR leaders to reimagine and elevate their organization.
