“Will more and more CHROs become CEOs in the coming years?”
Gaurabh, our co-founder and Chief Product Officer, envisioned this to be the future some years ago.
And looks like he was right!
At the Leaders Lounge conference in New York this past week (which was attended by our co-founders, Gaurabh Mathure and Kiran Menon), one of the hottest topics for discussion was this 👆.
Conversations and debates on CHROs being the successors to the CEO’s post are on fire right now and we think it is a very positive and strong sign.
We’re (super)excited to see what happens on this front in the coming decade and who will join the ranks of Mary Barra, Bernard Fontana, Amit Malik, and more recently, Leena Nair.
On that note, let’s dive right into what’s been trending in our mutual space of interest in the last 30 days.
Yes, the White House!
Riding on the sense of purpose that people are more actively seeking from their work in the wake of the pandemic, the White House is opening up a plethora of tech job opportunities to enhance the government platforms’ online experiences.
A technologist working for the government’s Veteran Affairs said this: “I just spent three years optimizing a shopping cart. And today what I coded actually helped somebody.”
Don’t we all want that? To see our efforts creating such an impact.

The pandemic has changed the working dynamics between organizations and their employees. And if what this means for your company, or if you are generally interested in the future of work, then you must follow Thomas Kochan, a professor at MIT Sloan School of Management’s Institute for Work and Employment Research.
Kochan says the new social contract expects “both parties (employees and employers) to be accountable for meeting each other’s expectations…for a workplace that values democracy, values productivity, and values worker respect.”
For more details, you can read Kochan’s new book Shaping the Future of Work: A Handbook for Action and New Social Contract, or attend the online executive education course led by him on Leading the Future of Work.
Checklists serve many purposes. But one that most of us love is the utter satisfaction that comes with checking off each and everything on the list.
That’s why we thought you might like having a really comprehensive checklist for your onboarding experience too. It is

For countries dependent on tourism for economic growth and for remote workers bitten by the travel bug, the time is just perfect. Estonia, Bermuda, Costa Rica, and the likes are removing immigration, paperwork, and tax barriers, and encouraging people to work remotely from their picturesque locales.

That’s all for now.
