Human Resources Officers Practice

The CHRO and other Human Resources leaders are essential drivers of company strategy, overseeing arguably the most valuable resource a company has – its people. Raines’ Human Resources Officers practice identifies and places business partners who understand how to drive change through talent to achieve measurable results.

About the Practice

In a world of increasing complexity and rapid, unrelenting change, a company is defined by its people. Today’s focus on talent has made Human Resources, and the Chief Human Resources Officer, roles of the utmost importance. As a key director of company strategy, the CHRO requires holistic business executives with a human capital lens to expertly shape, manage, and inspire a company’s workforce. From innovations in compensation, benefits, and rewards structures to implementing new people analytics and organizational design strategies, Human Resources creates the environments to maximize employee output toward broader business goals. At Raines, we work with a wide range of companies to identify the best human capital leaders for their specific organization and situation. We are committed to identifying and supporting the most exceptional executive for that opportunity through our robust network and offerings.

Is Your Chief People Officer Keeping Up? The Ever-Changing People Function

Businesses today largely accept that they are living in the widely referenced VUCA world of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, complete with a crushing pace of change.
