Having an HR Business Partner on a company leadership team should be seen as absolutely critical to the business succeeding. It should be understood that just as the CEO sets the vision for the company, the CIO creates technology solutions to grow the company, the CFO provides financial information to monitor company performance and the CSO provides the revenue to achieve this – but the HR Business Partner creates the people solutions that underpin ALL of these areas!
