The HR Leadership Team
The HR Leadership Team (HR LT) was added to the corporate governance structure at the start of 2013. The mandate of this advisory and decision-making body for the Human Resources (HR) Board department includes overarching corporate responsibility issues based on the current distribution of responsibilities. It bears the main responsibility for interactions with the Group Board of Management and determines whether or not a Board of Management resolution is necessary for individual topics. This function does not replace the specified responsibilities of the Group Board of Management but, rather, compliments these. HR LT makes decisions regarding significant aspects of CR positioning and on the strategic orientation of the CR department. It presents Group-wide policies and guidelines to the Board of Management for approval. HR Leadership Team is comprised of executives directly reporting to the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) and meets twice a month. Meetings are chaired by the Chief Human Resources Officer.
