He or she should also have experience driving cultural change and/or transformations. Previous experience working in a matrix environment will be an advantage as will experience reporting into an overseas Corporate Headquarters. Above all, the CHRO is seeking a pragmatic and practical HR leader who is hands-on, collaborative, relationship oriented and capable of influencing without ownership.
