CEO worries: Opportunity knocks for HR

A recent report sponsored by IBM and Oracle (2012) reveals that over 50% of CEOs say that “insufficient talent within the organisation as a whole” might harm their company financially over the next 12 months. Significant proportions also worry about “insufficient leadership talent”, “lack of alignment of individual and business objectives” and “low employee satisfaction.”

The report makes the case that there is a clear opportunity and need for HR to assist in the vital people dimension of corporate strategy. While 70% of CEOs want to head of HR to be a key player in strategic planning, only a bare majority believe that HR is a key player in their organisation in the area of talent management.
