The magnitude of social, economic, and health-related upheavals concurrently facing businesses is forcing CHROs to throw out their playbook and redefine their strategic agenda. In this upcoming webinar, a panel of top CHROs will guide participants through the ways that leading companies across different industry segments are responding to and thriving despite these challenges.

What You Will Learn
