Human Resources

At Egon Zehnder, we believe that the Chief Human Resources Officer has both the responsibility and the privilege of owning an organization’s talent agenda. This is a significant change from the days when HR was seen as an adjunct to the C-suite. Today, anyone who values leadership understands just how critical human capital is. That means companies must both select great leaders and develop others internally as business leaders in their own right. This new reality applies particularly to HR leaders, who can no longer operate in a siloed environment as functional or technical experts and who must understand the broader business challenges that any company faces. They must contribute to the solution.

Our Chief Human Resources Officers Practice understands this paradigm shift. We are committed to partnering with HR Directors as they continue to develop themselves, their teams, and their organizations for a future radically different from the one in which they came of age. Understanding that the world needs better leaders, we also want to bring the best in class HR Officers to you, whether from the outside, via a search, or from the inside, by developing your brightest.

Our consultants, many of whom come from the function itself, and others, long-term advisors to the HR community, have direct experience in the businesses we serve. And with 68 offices worldwide, we have the reach to help solve your HR challenges in any part of the world.
