Building an analytics tool that gives you data and numbers is only half the equation.  “A Chief People Officer needs to have more than data and metrics on their own company — they need to know what’s happening outside of their four walls. What are the top companies in our industry doing? What’s best practice? Who’s built the best playbook for this? Those are questions you can only answer by bringing experts together. That’s where community comes in,” he says.

Over the course of the next 12 months, that kernel of an idea evolved into the world’s largest network for hypergrowth Chief People Officers (now called CPOHQ), counting over 1,000 people executives from companies like Roblox, Glossier, and Figma as members.”

A note from our CEO

CPOHQ was first launched in March 2020, when the Chief People Officer job had never been more difficult.

In the last 18 months, the network has grown to over 1,000 top-tier CPOs on a referral-only basis
‍‍
Building this group has been especially important to me, as I was mentored by a generation of founders & CEOs who believe that nothing is more important than building a community. I've come to share that belief.

We’re building a Chief People Officer network unlike any other.

See you on the other side.

Thanks,
Joseph
