Table of Contents

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 and  Ginger.com.

Episode 327: CHRO Series – How is HR Structured Within Your Organization?

 

One of the reasons I wanted to do this series is because there is a lot of mystery around the CHRO role. Throughout the CHRO podcast series, we asked each guest about how HR is structured within their organization, their team size, who they report to, and who reports to them. Because we’ve talked to CHROs from all types of organizations, their answers were really varied and insightful.

In this podcast episode, listen to excerpts from some of the best interviews on the Workology Podcast with CHROs and Chief People Officers on how and where HR sits within their organizational structure, from a department of just a few to larger HR departments at multinational companies.

This episode features (in order):

Jenna Saponaro, Chief of Staff at Postali LLC

Gealita Greenhill, Chief People Officer, Murphy Hoffman Company

Adriana Bokel, Chief People Officer of Pega

Terri Lewis, CHRO at One Call

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 how their teams were built, where their HR function sits within the organization, and what their reporting structure is, gives us so much insight into how this role operates.
