I’ve been thinking some more about Jean Tabaka’s post about a new job
title for their HR Director, and my subsequent comments about the
negativity I feel about referring to people as ‘resources’.
Since most Board director roles are Chief something Officer, I suggested
CPO for Chief People Officer, which I think is a very fitting and very
But then I thought of this! If the HR Director is responsible for
People, Process and Payroll (3 P’s), perhaps they should be called C3PO?!
I don’t know about you, but if I was CEO I couldn’t resist that, and
what HR Director in their right mind wouldn’t want that 🙂
