Ceridian’s CHRO, Susan Tohyama, unpacks how the role of HR leaders has evolved from a supporting role to an increasingly critical and strategic role. Here, Susan shares themes and best practices for HR leaders that will be explored in depth at Ceridian INSIGHTS.
Chief Human Resources Officer
Over the last decade, HR has moved from a support function to a function focused on leadership and organizational resilience. Now, HR leaders are holistic strategists for the business, responsible for driving value and opportunities for both the employee and employer.
Just a quick look at the changing scope of HR underscores that point. Five years ago, how many companies had DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) leaders? A defined employee experience? Flexible programs truly focused on the wellbeing of all employees?
Not many. Now, most enterprises do. Five years from now, much more will be added, as the employer-employee relationship continues to shift. The pandemic reset has allowed employees the time to reevaluate and communicate what is truly important to them – a renewed balance in both their work and personal lives and the need for a stronger company commitment to social consciousness. These are only a few platforms companies will be graded against both internally and externally – with HR leaders at the forefront of these initiatives.
At our upcoming customer conference, INSIGHTS, we will explore the many ways HR leaders are – and must continue to be – critical strategists for a company’s entire culture, retention strategy, value proposition, and beyond.
INSIGHTS 2022 attendees will be empowered by inspiring keynotes – including one by tennis star and entrepreneur Venus Williams – educational breakouts, Ceridian customer sessions, and new connections to help them lead in the new world of work.
At INSIGHTS, we’re hosting a variety of sessions packed full of smart takeaways for HR leaders to bring back to their business. Don’t miss the following sessions.
Workplace flexibility – the key to your employee value proposition
Research tells us that employees want flexibility in where they work, when they work, and in some cases how much they work. In fact, employees are leaving organizations that are unwilling to offer flexible work options. Learn about the power of flexibility and how it can differentiate your company from the competition.
The employee experience – and why it's key to future-proofing your organization
A clear people-first focus enables organizations to navigate change, amplify culture, and retain top talent. To future-proof your organization, you must listen to, invest in, and empower your employees.
Empowering people: How to Cultivate a winning team
