The relationship between CFOs and CHROs has not always been easy.  CFOs have tended to view human capital primarily as a cost while CHROs have viewed it primarily as an asset that requires nurturing and investment.  In addition, the differences between the traditional finance focus on certainty and hard measurements, and HR's focus on less traditional, tangible metrics have created a chasm that many companies have found difficult to bridge.  With talent growing more costly and scarce, and as business strategies, operating models, products and services increasingly change, a clear need for a more collaborative relationship is emerging.  In this session, we will hear two CHRO/CFO pairs explore the inherent biases and opportunities of their respective functions, and you will walk away with practical ideas to craft a successful partnership in your own organization.

Confirmed Speakers Include:

  • Exelon Corporation: Amy Best, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, and Jonathan Thayer, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
