Leading CHRO Summits across the EU and US

Sponsor Opportunities Event Calendar




The role of Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs) has become increasingly intricate in the aftermath of a global pandemic. CHROs are now at the forefront of efforts to establish business value across all facets of workforce management. Consequently, the HR function has transcended its traditional position and now assumes a pivotal role. HR professionals are not merely present at the decision-making table; rather, they actively steer companies alongside the remainder of the C-suite, aiming to foster inclusivity and adopt a holistic approach to the overarching business strategy.

Within the current dynamic business environment, CHROs confront a plethora of challenges that necessitate their HR expertise and strategic acumen. They are tasked with ensuring efficient HR operations and adherence to regulations, optimizing the allocation of HR budgets, and effectively managing employee engagement and well-being. As a result, CHROs are compelled to make well-informed decisions regarding DEI initiatives, talent acquisition, development, and retention, while also implementing state-of-the-art HR solutions.

The next couple of years will be volatile and while it holds many challenges, there are also many opportunities for the CHROs that get it right. Our community of proactive CHROs actively seek partners capable of providing guidance and support throughout their HR endeavors. The CHRO Series offers a unique opportunity to engage with these HR leaders, enabling the exchange of knowledge and fostering collaborations to address the challenges faced by CHROs in today's HR landscape. By prioritizing the role of the CHRO and investing in robust HR strategies, businesses position themselves favorably to thrive in today's employee-centric world.

CDM Media is the leading global face-to-face events firm, specializing in C-Suite engagement for the world’s largest brands. Founded in 2007, we are headquartered in Arizona, complimented with our EMEA office in the UK. Over the last decade we have built an international community of over 10,000 top level executives. These are the enterprise players and decision makers that represent the top half of all worldwide technology decision makers from largest companies in the most influential sectors.

Our mission is help the world’s largest companies to solve their biggest technology challenges. We do that using a tried and true formula of creating face-to-face discussions in intimate settings. Our belief is that the next generation of technology leaders will face challenges unlike any that have come before. The only way for a CxO or senior executive to tackle these business problems head on is to learn from their peers and innovative solution providers who spend their days addressing similar concerns at a similar scale. We provide a space for that interaction to take place in dynamic, engaging, and open discussion and to build lasting business relationships that will change the landscape of enterprise technology today and into the future.
