Chief Human Resources Officer is Business Strategist

Chief HR Officers are playing key strategic roles in businesses now, including helping the organization manage risks and priorities, and finding and engaging the talent needed to meet business goals. This informative report from Deloitte describes the role as that of both strategist and steward:
