About The Council

The way we approach work is changing before our eyes. Technological advances, demographic shifts and new perspectives on the employee/employer relationship have led to a major cultural shift when it comes to the workforce.

Chief human resource officers, diversity and inclusion leaders, and top talent and benefits executives often are the guardians of a company’s culture. They face a delicate balancing act, and the stakes are high. The role of the HR executive never has been more challenging — and the opportunities more exciting. As corporations and financial markets place more value on human capital concerns like stakeholder capitalism, corporate culture and jobs of the future, it’s clear that senior Human Resources Officers will be central to redefining how businesses survive and thrive in the next era.

To be the agent of change in these complex times, the right tools and resources are needed. The CNBC Workforce Executive Council is the unparalleled resource for senior HR executives, equipping them with the information and network necessary to succeed in today’s business environment. The WEC is a community of members from a wide range of industries with access to exclusive private events, intimate peer-to-peer networking, professional development, and news and information products tailored uniquely for them.
