Hiring your boss: HR’s role in recruiting CEOs
During one of our tea break conversations in the office, a very interesting query arose in our minds. Who hires the CEO of a company?
Each one had something different to say on the matter. From a logical point of view, hiring falls under the jurisdiction of the HR function and requires the involvement of the HR heads of the company. But a look at the situation from this side brought to mind a very hard-hitting question. How can someone hire his own boss? After all, within any corporate hierarchy, don’t all the CHROs report to their respective CEOs?
