In early 2019, PI surveyed 156 CEOs, presidents, and chairpeople for our annual CEO benchmarking report. We found out that 52 percent of the CEOs who set strategic goals in 2018 didn’t achieve them. What’s causing this gap between goals and results?
Many companies don’t do the essential “people work” that’s required to achieve their strategic goals. They don’t have an end-to-end talent strategy in place, they don’t know how to align their employees with their business strategy, and they struggle with various people problems. In fact, four of the CEOs’ five biggest business challenges were people-centric.
HR is a function that’s grounded in people. Show your CEO you’re capable of designing solutions to close the gap for good.
