2014 CHRO Honorees

HRO Today Awards Gala Recognizes
Chief Human Resource Officers of the Year

“The talent management landscape has become much more complex, making it contingent upon HR leaders to drive positive transformation by adopting the strategies and practices that can enhance the talent acquisition, retention and employee engagement processes,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of SharedXpertise. “As we received a high number of nominees for the inaugural CHRO of the Year Awards, all of whom certainly demonstrated their commitment to workplace innovation, it was difficult to select the top few. We congratulate these four winners for truly standing out and driving excellence among their workforces.”
