Who is Advocating for Senior HR Executives?

In the modern corporate landscape, Senior HR Executives hold a pivotal yet challenging position within organizations. Tasked with balancing the needs of both the company and its employees, Senior HR Executives often find themselves walking a tightrope between organizational objectives and individual well-being. Despite their crucial role, they frequently face scrutiny and can be perceived as the opposition when difficult decisions need to be made. But who advocates for them in times of professional and ethical dilemma?

Deb Josephs, an HR Consultant with over 30 years’ experience in Human Resources, specializing in technology and media companies, emphasizes the constant challenges faced by HR leaders, stating, “HR leaders are constantly challenged with trying to keep up, prove their worth, and not burn out.”

Senior HR Executives are entrusted with safeguarding the interests of employees while aligning them with the overarching goals of the organization. They are responsible for fostering a positive workplace culture, implementing HR strategies, and addressing personnel issues. However, this role often places them in tough positions, where they may be directed by the CEO or senior leaders to make decisions that may conflict with their personal beliefs or values.

In such instances, it becomes essential to identify who supports and advocates for the well-being of Senior HR Executives. Despite the demanding nature of their role, Senior HR Executives often lack a dedicated support system tailored to their needs. As a result, many Senior HR Executives experience high turnover rates, with burnout and stress being significant contributing factors.

According to industry data, the turnover rate for Senior HR Executives has been steadily increasing in recent years. A report by Deloitte found that the average tenure of a Senior HR executive is approximately 4.1 years, indicating a lack of longevity in the role. This turnover not only disrupts organizational continuity but also reflects the challenges and pressures faced by Senior HR Executives in their positions.

In light of these challenges, there is a pressing need for solutions that support and empower Senior HR Executives in their roles. Enter Aerodei, an inclusive performance platform designed to advocate for everyone in the workplace, including Senior HR Executives. Aerodei offers a range of features tailored to make the lives of Senior HR Executives easier and more manageable.

Monica Juarez, an Employee Relations Executive with over 15 years of experience, emphasized, “A resource that can maintain the pulse of the organization and coach its leaders, at all levels, to develop their teams and culture is not a drain on revenue but rather an investment in the growth of a successful organization. True ROI will come from ‘promotions from within’, low turnover, and healthy engagement.”

Deb Josephs further noted, “The most successful HR leaders work in an organization where they are not viewed as simply administrative, particularly women in that role. Most organizations do not have generous HR budgets so resources are always limited, but the most helpful resources include access to HR technology, a platform for a voice to the organization, and administrative support so they can focus on the strategy.”

Aerodei is the solution, and one of its key features is the tracking system that empowers Senior HR Executives to make informed decisions that benefit both employees and the organization. Moreover, Aerodei's approach promotes inclusive behavior within the workplace, aligning with the values and objectives of Senior HR Executives. By fostering a culture of inclusivity, Aerodei helps Senior HR Executives create a supportive and welcoming environment for all employees, reducing the likelihood of conflicts and ethical dilemmas.

For example, Aerodei played a pivotal role in fostering collaboration between a predominantly male team of engineers and a recruiter advocating for gender representation to address its absence. Guided by an engineering manager, the team overlooked prioritizing the attraction of women-identifying candidates for open positions, instead opting to hire engineers they had previously worked with, all of whom were male. However, through collaborative efforts within Aerodei, the engineering manager gained a deeper awareness of the gender bias that had emerged and took inclusive actions within the organization. This ultimately led to the development of a more inclusive recruitment strategy that he wholeheartedly embraced with his team.

Additionally, Aerodei serves as a valuable resource for Senior HR Executives by offering monthly roundtable forums that share industry trends, insights, and advice from Senior HR Executives at various companies. Through peer-to-peer support and knowledge sharing, Senior HR Executives can gain insights and strategies for overcoming common challenges in their roles.

Senior HR Executives play a critical role in supporting organizations and employees, yet they often lack adequate support and advocacy. With high turnover rates and the pressures of their positions, Senior HR Executives require solutions that empower them to succeed. Aerodei emerges as a beacon of support for Senior HR Executives, offering tools and resources designed to alleviate their burdens and promote their well-being in the workplace. By embracing Aerodei, organizations can foster a culture of inclusivity, support, and business impact, ensuring the success and longevity of their Senior HR Executives.
