CEO & BOARD DIRECTORS CONSENSUS 2021

CEO & Board Directors Consensus 2021: The Board Director of Today

Principal Connections’ CEO and Board Search Practice has helped many of the most successful organisations across Ireland build their boards and senior leadership teams.

As we continue to navigate the global public health emergency as well as Brexit and new trade deal arrangements, the presence of a strong, independent and effective board is more crucial than ever. The most effective boards have a positive and sustainable impact on the organisations that they serve ensuring good governance while driving organisational performance. High performing boards instil confidence among shareholders, trustee’s and stakeholders, and create a diverse and balanced perspective — one that reflects the strategic vision of an enterprise.

A Report by CEO & Board Search Firm Principal Connections

In December of 2020, Principal Connections decided to undertake a comprehensive research programme to gauge the views of board directors of Irish entities – ranging from plc’s and multinationals to private limited companies, public sector and non-profit entities, concerning a broad range of board related themes. Topics focused on included board – practices, refreshment, diversity, social issues and COVID-19. The findings have produced many interesting insights for the first time in an Irish context.

We would like to sincerely thank the CEO and board director group who took considerable time from their busy schedules to participate in this consensus. We at Principal Connections firmly hope that this consensus will support and better inform boardrooms across Ireland in their debate and decision making as they look to the future.

HR DIRECTORS CONSENSUS 2020

HR Directors Consensus 2020: The Role of the HR Director in Ireland

At Principal Connections, we partner with many of Ireland’s most senior HR Directors seeking to appoint the best leadership talent at home and from abroad. Moreover, such HR leaders frequently refer to us in striving to achieve their own individual career goals.

In the corporate pecking order, the role of the HR Director has often played
second fiddle to the more commercially driven aspects of corporate operations. While business savvy CEO’s have long recognised HR’s strategic importance, the coronavirus pandemic has underscored the role of the HR Director as one of the most important functions for organisations worldwide.

A Report by Executive Search Firm Principal Connections

Principal Connections conducted a research programme in October of 2020, to explore the current disposition of the HR Director functional role in Ireland. Our objective was to facilitate a comprehensive understanding of what the role of HR Director now means, through capturing the views of those who understand it best. Thank you to each of the 244 CHRO’s, CPO’s, HRD’s, HR VP’s and HoHR’s who took the time to respond and inform this largely under-researched area.
