The finance / HR union

The global pandemic tested executive teams like never before and reinforced the importance of cross-functional collaboration to sustain business operations through challenging times. For some CFOs and CHROs, this may have been easier said than done.

Traditionally, CFOs have been numbers-driven, often viewing human capital as a cost, whereas CHROs have been all about people, viewing human capital as an asset that requires investment. Fortunately, times have changed. Not only do many CFOs today have a greater appreciation of the value that engaged, productive employees can deliver to their business, but CHROs have bolstered their knowledge and use of metrics and data – the true language of business. However, there’s still work to be done. Our eBook outlines what both sides can do to do to meet in the middle.

A new era for HR technology

An advanced level of HR / finance collaboration is essential to get any people-related initiative off the ground, but it’s also important for any investments into HR technology. There are new expectations from executives, HR and employees around what HR tech can deliver, but any type of investment starts with a solid business case, and, ideally, a solid HR / finance partnership.
