Philadelphia, PA (Newsworthy.ai) Wednesday May 11, 2022 @ 7:00 AM Pacific —

SharedXpertise Media, publishers of HRO Today magazine and HRO Today Global, producers of the Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings, and organizers of the HRO Today Forums and Educational Events, is proud to announce the successful conclusion of the 2022 HRO Today Forum North America and the winners of CHRO of the Year and Talent Acquisition Leader of the Year awards.

Hosted at the Westin Hotel in Center City Philadelphia, the 2022 HRO Today Forum North America featured more than 300 leaders of the human resources field, including over 50 Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs). These leaders enjoyed three days of executive meetings hosted by our C-TEN group, a range of content sessions, lively panel discussions, a town hall with Wharton School HR Dean Peter Cappelli, and the introduction of TED-talk style speaking slots for leaders of different backgrounds to share challenges and situations they face.

The 2022 event also saw the introduction of HRO Today's new interactive digital magazine format, as well as the rollout of new programs for HR practitioners: the Professional Development Institute and Advisory Services.

HRO Today also bestowed its annual awards for CHRO of the Year and Talent Acquisition Leader of the Year. From delivering a winning culture to introducing fresh recruitment strategies, they are stewards and strategists who are responsible for a company’s talent and performance blueprint—all of which drive the business forward.
