This podcast is part of a series on the Workology Podcast focused on the role and responsibilities of the Chief Human Resources Officer, or CHRO (often called Chief People Officer or VP of Talent). The CHRO is an executive or C-level role that deals with managing human resources, as well as with organizational development and implementing policies of change to improve the overall efficiency of the company. The CHRO Podcast series on Workology is powered by Daily Pay.

Episode 297: CHRO Series – How Did You Start Your Career in HR? 

One of the reasons I wanted to do this series is because there is a lot of mystery around the CHRO role. I want aspiring CHRO’s to know what type of skills and experiences they need to promote into a future CHRO role. Throughout the CHRO podcast series, we asked each guest about how they began their careers and grew into their CHRO roles – and their answers were really varied and interesting.

In this podcast episode, listen to excerpts from some of the best interviews on the Workology Podcast with CHROs, VPs of HR and Chief People Officers on how some of the most successful professionals in the industry started their careers with an eye on a leadership position.

This episode features (in order):

 

Nickle LaMoreaux, SVP and CHRO for IBM

Gealita Greenhill, Chief People Officer, Murphy Hoffman Company

Jay Moldenhauer-Salazar, Chief People Officer for Minted.com

Whitney Bennett, VP of Talent & Culture, CallRail

Marisa Peters, Chief People Officer at VideoAmp

Jane Keith, CHRO of IFS

Michele Lanza, SVP, Global Talent Attraction & Retention Strategies, Ketchum

The full podcasts are linked to each guest above.

It’s so interesting to delve into how a role like CHRO whose experience more closely connects them to the strategy and operations of the overall business works with the rest of a company leadership team. Hearing the stories about how these HR leaders got their start in HR and how it led them to a CHRO role, there are so many ways to grow your HR career. I’m inspired by these stories and hope you are too!
