DNA of a HRD



At Hays we wanted to discover what does it take to become a HR Director, what is their DNA?  We surveyed 75 HR Directors based in Ireland from SMEs, national and multinational companies. From their responses we created a useful guide for any HR professional looking to move up the ranks to HR Director level.

Not only does this report give an insight into the world of HR Directors and their career journey but it also goes beyond the survey questions with profiles of HR Directors from three global companies, Diageo, EMC and Two Sisters Food Group. Find out if mentors are useful, HR's place in the boardroom and the gender split in the industry.

This report will provide food for thought on how to follow in the footsteps of the current HR industry leaders.
