The best HR executives don’t just prepare for tomorrow—they shape it.

Today, the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) takes both the responsibility and the privilege of owning the company's talent agenda. This is a significant change from the days when human resources executives were seen as secondary to the C-suite. Today, anyone who understands leadership knows just how critical human capital is, which means internally developing, or recruiting, a HR executive who reflects your company’s core values.

This new reality applies particularly to team leaders, such as human resources executives, who can no longer operate in a siloed environment as functional or technical experts. Instead, they must understand the broader business challenges that the company faces, and be responsible for contributing to the solution.


We help leading multinationals, mid-cap and emerging companies across industries find the Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs) and other senior HR executives they need to take their organisations to the next level.  

Principal Connections - executive search understands the sector’s shifting landscape. We are committed to partnering with CHROs, CPOs and HR Directors as they continue to develop themselves, their teams, and their organisations for a radically different future. Our HR executive recruitment consultants know that the world needs better leaders, which is why we also want to help companies across of all shapes, sizes and maturity find the best human resource executives. This may be achieved through developing the brightest HR talent via internal development, or from external HR executive recruitment.

Many of our HR executive recruitment consultants have been long-term advisors with a dedicated knowledge of the human resources function. Whatever their background, as part of Agilium Worldwide Executive Search Group we can call on the depth of our 55 worldwide offices.
