Catherine S. Farley, managing director-Talent & Organization Performance, Accenture, argues that the chief talent officer has much broader responsibilities than yesterday’s head of HR.
The new strategic role is emerging at a time when business conditions are worsening. But, says Farley, chief talent officers should see this as a chance to think more boldly about the strategic value of the workforce.
Farley outlines the focus areas for new chief talent officers during the first 100 days:
Social, economic, political and industry change is set to continue—it is essential for a dedicated executive to oversee the continuous creation of an agile organization, appropriately skilled to meet a shifting set of challenges. Chief talent officers have a vital role in helping organizations to achieve high performance.
