Australia’s top HR professionals revealed in annual report

29 HR practitioners named as the best of the best in the industry

Human Resources Director has released its 2017 Hot List report, highlighting 29 individuals who are at the top of their game—being seen today as not only passionate HR professionals but also successful business leaders.

Currently, the HR profession has become broader and more vital within organisations. After years of struggle to be taken seriously at executive level, most HR professionals today are acting as trusted advisors to their business. HR practitioners now have their hands full as they must look through a lens that views their role in the context of broader business operations—all the while excelling in all items traditionally viewed as HR’s responsibility.

“It’s remarkable how many people listed on this year’s Hot List specifically mentioned to HRD the importance of being seen not just as HR professionals  but also being good at business,” said Iain Hopkins, HRD editor. “Today it’s not just about being good at the ‘people stuff’, but it’s also about knowing the key business drivers and being able to be a trusted advisor to the whole management team.”

The full report is available in issue 15.10 of Human Resources Director, out now, or view the list online at http://www.hcamag.com/rankings/hot-list-2017/
