Which mindset do you think existing Boards and CEOs are in when it comes to HRDs being able to make the move to CEO?

Have you ever asked the question why HR Directors don’t make the move to CEO? Why Boards and CEOs ignore “HRness”? Is HR really dead? Where is HR’s guiding North Star? Could you imagine an HR Director being your CEO?

In Human Resources Changes the World, Glenn G Jones examines the available research and sets out the reasons why HR is not progressing to its full potential; it will surprise you. If you’ve never thought of becoming a CEO and you are in HR, then think again.

After over thirty years in HR and six years in freelance HR consulting, the above questions have become something that Glenn needed to tackle.

In this book, Glenn sets out the actions and mindset that must be adopted to enable HR to really change the world in the 21st century.
