A Powerful Team – How CEOs and their HR Leaders are Transforming Organizations  

We are excited to announce that Scott Rosen has taken on the challenge of co-authoring another book, the focus of which will be how effective CEO/CHRO partnerships drive organizations to higher levels of performance.
The book is co authored with David Pinette of Challenger Gray and Christmas and John Touey of Salveson Stetson.
It will consist of interviews with CEOs and their CHROs and will get to the heart of what makes an effective partnership between the CEO and CHRO, and what benefits the organization derives from that relationship.
With so much negativity surrounding the value of HR, we believe strongly in elevating the credibility of our function and feel this is a powerful way to do so.
Below is the list of companies and their HR Leaders that will be included in the book.

SOME INITIAL FINDINGS
  • CEOs interviewed believe the HR leader should have a role in the organization equal to the COO, CFO, and other leaders on the business side of operations.
  • The HR leader’s and team’s understanding of the business has to be equal to or greater than their understanding of HR issues. The CEO needs to see the HR leader as an equal on the leadership team.
  • A major role played by HR is in finding out what employees truly think about the company and acting on that information to improve culture. A positive and engaged culture plays a critical role in driving results.

Two Sides of the Story-Matching Clients with Contractors

The Rosen Group is one of very few firms in the NJ, NY, PA, and DE area that focuses on one, single area all day, every day – recruiting and assessing HR talent! We have a database of thousands of HR executives with a wide range of experience, expertise and talent at all levels all the way up to the VP HR level.

This article focuses on the experience of both the client and contractor, and how finding the right candidate to fit into your company’s culture is key.

Laura Pierce, HR Director from Houghton International for the Americas, started using the Rosen Group about 6 months ago to fill various HR positions.  Her experience has been excellent.  She described Scott Rosen, President of the Rosen Group, as extraordinarily knowledgeable.  The turnaround time in placing a contractor is very fast, and the quality of service is excellent.  Scott always provides a wide range of people to choose from.  She said the candidates presented “hit the nail on the head in terms of competencies”.

Recently Laura was looking to fill an HR Project role.  The position was filled with Margie McLaughlin, a long time client of the Rosen Group.  After being a client for 20 years, Margie now had the opportunity to become a contractor for the Rosen Group.

Scott spoke with both Margie to see what her interest was in the HR Project role and then submitted her as a candidate to Laura.  After 2 phone interviews Margie was hired. Margie says this new role is amazing!  She enjoys working with Laura and using her creativity and applying her knowledge and best practices to her new company.

Margie would recommend the Rosen Group to both clients and contractors looking for positions in the HR field.  “I have used the Rosen group for 20 years and have never been disappointed.  Now, as a contractor, it was a very pleasant experience.  I couldn’t recommend the Rosen Group more highly!”

As you can see, this was a great placement!  Both the client and the contractor are very pleased with the overall experience using the Rosen Group.  In the end, Laura Pierce said, “I am always impressed and extremely happy.  I will go to the Rosen Group first for help filling HR roles.”

We want to thank both Laura and Margie for sharing their experience with Scott Rosen and the Rosen Group.  It’s always a pleasure to hear the great experiences of our clients and contractors.  If you are in need of filling an HR role, or looking for contract positions in any area of Human Resources, we would love to hear from you! Please email rosengroup@rosengroup.com to connect with the Rosen Group.

If you have an experience you would like to share (as a contractor or client), please contact our Marketing Manager, Lynda Cusano.

Building Strong Relationships- Meeting a Client’s Needs Across the Miles

The Rosen Group is one of very few firms in the NJ, NY, PA, and DE area that focuses on one, single area all day, every day – recruiting and assessing HR talent!  We have a database of thousands of HR executives with a wide range of experience, expertise and talent at all levels all the way up to the VP HR level.  So it was no surprise when a long time client who moved out of the tri-state area reached out to the Rosen Group when she needed to fill an HR position.  While our primary focus is the Delaware Valley, this is a story how strong relationships can expand business and continue to fulfill a client’s needs.
Alicia Brill, Director of Human Resources at Georgetown University Hospitals, first started working with the Rosen Group in 2002 while she was working for Lourdes Health System.
When Alicia initially made the move to Georgetown, she needed help filling an HR position.  She immediately thought of the Rosen Group, and Senior Recruiter Marlyn Bennett.  Marlyn found candidates in the area online with the help of social media, and she filled the position with a great candidate.
The relationship that Alicia and Marlyn built continues to thrive.  When a new pilot program was introduced to use contractors instead of hiring permanent employees, Marlyn came through again by providing contractors who had superior customer service skills and kept everything going even with the steep learning curve for the positions.
Alicia went on the say that the Rosen Group provides a specialty service in focusing on HR people which is a very valuable selling point.
In closing Alicia spoke about the Rosen Group overrall, and her primary contact Marlyn Bennett.  “Marlyn just gets it.  Especially when you’re in a pinch.  I would call the Rosen Group no matter who I’m with.  Marlyn does it all!”
We thank Alicia for taking the time to share her experience with us. If you have an experience you would like to share (as a contractor or client), please contact our Marketing Manager, Lynda Cusano.
