In our view, the role of the HR Director is one of the most important functions for organisations worldwide. HR Directors and their teams lead the way in people-based decision making, taking the sentiment of an entire workforce and using it to help shape a destination workplace. By creating somewhere people want to work, HR Directors are propelling a virtuous circle where people are motivated to give their best, which leads to even higher quality talent being attracted to the organisation and contributing to its future. Furthermore, this leads to better products, services and a better customer experience, and of course more bottom-line revenues.
With the above in mind, Principal Connections decided to undertake a research programme in November of 2022, to explore the current disposition of the HR Director functional role in Ireland. Building on the foundations of a similar study undertaken in 2020, the objective was to develop and provide a comprehensive post-Covid understanding of what the role of HR Director now means in 2023, through capturing the views of those who understand it best.
