Movers and Shakers, Commerce and Industry – June 2023

The first six months of 2023 have seen continued demand for Chief People Officers and HR Directors, despite uncertainty in the wider economy. This is backed up by recent data which shows the number of HR employees within an organisation has increased.

In addition, we are seeing an increase in the number of Chief People Officers and HR Directors reporting directly into the CEO. This trend has been consistent across all sectors and sizes of organisations.

Please reach out to Damien Barnett for a confidential discussion about senior HR opportunities across Commerce and Industry or Emma Castillo for HR opportunities within Technology.

Congratulations to all the Movers and Shakers, who have begun new roles in the first half of 2023
