The role of the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) has never been more important, or the impact more consequential than it is today.

The effects of the pandemic, talent challenges, social justice movement and economic uncertainty are requiring new capabilities and placing disproportionate demands on CHROs and their functions to deliver innovative and sustainable solutions and drive business results.

New CHROs are expected to quickly assess their organizations and teams and begin moving the needle on urgent issues in short order. The window of opportunity to get traction and build confidence while beginning to demonstrate results is shrinking.

MalinHughes offers a proven CHRO Executive Onboarding program to equip new CHROs and set them up for immediate and long-term success. History shows that new leaders who receive formal onboarding and coaching demonstrate their ability to add value more quickly, maintain a positive impact throughout the critical first year, and are more likely to be retained over the next five years.

Our program includes a variety of services, from on-demand coaching to a First 100-Day Plan, with a clear roadmap, key milestones and alignment on expected results and measurable outcomes.

The program is designed and delivered by David D. Jones, the President of MalinHughes’ Human Capital Solutions practice, who has successfully served as a CHRO for 30+ years in premier healthcare systems and in other industries across the nation.
