Phase One (January 2014- June 2014)

In June 2014, a gathering of CHROs culminated the first phase of the CHREATE initiative, to create a collective effort among HR leaders to advance their profession.They identified four pivotal arenas where accelerated progress would make the biggest impact on HR’s future readiness and suggested that teams be created to advance each arena.


Align HR with Value Creation for Organizations that Win


Articulate the HR charter/ contribution model that describes the essential contributions companies will need from our field to successfully compete in the future.


Shape Expectations of HR’s Key Constituents


Define what is needed to move beyond today’s constituent expectations of HR, then improve those expectations with evidence that this role leads to improved value creation.


Rewire The Work and Tools of HR


Define the processes, practices, systems, and operating models that drive HR’s deliverables and outcomes.


Enhance the HR Talent Pipeline


Crystallize a new set of professional requirements that is based on current research that explores the needs and gaps in the HR profession.

Phase Two (July 2014- May 2015)

During Phase Two, volunteer HR leaders agreed to develop a common, tangible and evidence‐based vision of the future that will face organizations and the global workplace in 2025.  Based on that future vision, each team developed specific implications for HR, and a roadmap to get there.
