Human Resources

At any company, the Chief Human Resources Officer takes both the responsibility and the privilege of owning an organization’s talent agenda. This is a significant change from the days when human resources practices were seen as secondary to the C-suite. Today, anyone who understands leadership knows just how critical human capital is, which means internally developing, or hiring, an HR executive who reflects your company’s core values.

This new reality applies particularly to team leaders, such as human resources executives, who can no longer operate in a siloed environment as functional or technical experts. Instead, they must understand the broader business challenges that any company faces, and be responsible for contributing to the solution.

Egon Zehnder’s Approach To Human Resources Executive Search

Our Chief Human Resources Officers Practice understands the sector’s shifting landscape. We are committed to partnering with HR Directors as they continue to develop themselves, their teams, and their organizations for a radically different future. Our team knows that the world needs better leaders, which is why we also want to help your business find the best human resource executives. This may be achieved through developing your brightest HR talent via internal development, or from external HR executive search.

Many of our consultants come from the sector itself, while others have been long-term advisors with a dedicated knowledge of human resources practice. Whatever their background, our 68 worldwide offices can offer the reach to help solve your HR challenges, wherever your business is based.
