Making a Greater Impact in HR – Together 

What Does Being an HR Executive Council Member Mean for You? 

The purpose is simple: HR leaders helping HR leaders succeed.

Why be a part of the HR Executive Council?

  • There are so many groups available that are designed for CEOs, but few for CHROs or similar leaders
  • Learn from your own private advisory council focused on your success
  • The HR Executive Council is like an HR think tank – a peer group of the most creative, inspired HR leaders coming together to share their knowledge and experiences.
  • Dramatically improve your capacity to lead.
  • The HR Executive Council is an environment where each person can bring their biggest challenges to receive peer advice based on actual experience. A community of HR executives helping HR executives succeed.
  • Increase your company’s performance.
  • Every gathering is designed with one idea in mind – taking action! The collective of HR leaders in each group puts their minds and experiences together to solve real problems and define specific steps to address these challenges.

How Do We Do This?

Convening at Quarterly Council Meetings

  • Each quarter, council members gather for a 3-5 hour session of open discussions and roundtables aimed at highlighting members’ experiences on the most urgent HR issues of the day – as well as what challenges and opportunities lie ahead.
  • The focus is to walk away with specific action steps that you can apply in your business now.
  • Curated by Qualigence CEO Steve Lowisz and based on the specific needs of the group, these gatherings give you an opportunity to socialize, brainstorm and build relationships with other council members and guests. Get inspired and share insights with your peers.
  • As a council member, you’ll have the opportunity to forge lasting bonds with other pioneering CHROs. Build friendships with the executives driving HR forward – and building the future of business.

So What Does It Take to Become a Member?

  • Not anyone can be a part of the HR Executive Council
  • Every member goes through a process that includes an application for membership and an interview with a member of the selection committee
  • Member needs to come from a company of 1000 employees or bigger
  • Member must come from a private or public company with legal board oversight 
  • Each new member is voted in by the selection committee
  • What will we look for:
    • Those that are lifelong learners – every member is committed to both their personal and professional growth
    • Those that are open and accountable – leave your ego at the door. Be willing to share your goals, challenges, and KPIs
    • Those who are committed to the success of others – committed to helping other members of the group address their challenges and opportunities
    • Those committed to the core values of the HR Executive Council
