Organizations need their future human capital leaders ready for their next career step. And aspiring HR leaders must be prepared to deal with a multitude of responsibilities— some of which they’ve likely had limited or no experience with at this stage in their careers.

From working with the Board of Directors, to understanding compensation structures, building CEO trust, setting a strategic vision, and anticipating emerging workforce trends, every future leader has knowledge gaps they need to close.

i4cp’s executive boards bring together research and forward-thinking leaders and practitioners to discuss, debate, collaborate, and identify trends and next practices in HR in order to build capacity and make more informed business decisions.

Benefits of joining the Board
