Does who HR reports to in the organization have a lot of meaning?  Many people think it does, and here’s what one of my readers thinks it means.  Take a look and let’s talk after the jump:

–HR reports to CEO: people are our biggest asset; culture is important, as is engagement. 

HR reports to COO: people are our building blocks; urgent resource needs for delivery of product or service, tactical.

HR reports to CFO: people are our biggest expense; headcount is a dirty word, bottom-line.

HR reports to GC: people are our biggest liability; why-we-can’t policy administration, risk aversion.

I like the list – a lot.
