Organisations everywhere are facing uncertain and unpredictable times, as rising inflation, hard-to-find talent and global supply chain constraints make sustained growth extremely complex. HR leaders in particular are facing a delicate balancing act, weighing trade-offs between people and technology, cost savings and talent investments, and business requirements with employee needs, to name a few. Underlying it all, CHROs must also continue to excel in their most foundational role – cultivating a positive culture and employee experience to attract new talent and retain existing talent.
