Program's message

Nowadays, the head of human resources of an enterprise is often titled Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO), instead of the traditional title of Human Resources Manager or Director. This change is not simply in name only; it reflects the transformation of CHRO’s role according to global trends in human resources management. PACE recognizes that the CHRO is not only a high-level position, but also a professional occupation that requires methodical and systematic training.  PACE has subsequently researched, designed, and implemented the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) training program to empower business leaders with the knowledge of new trends and critical skills to become a professional CHRO. 

Taking into profound consideration of the human resources circumstances in Vietnam, especially new labor laws and regulations, PACE hopes to provide business leaders with a global perspective on human resources management to bring their companies up to par with international standards. The training program for CHROs includes the following main components: (1) Being a Professional CHRO; (2) HR Division; (3) HR Strategy; (4) Recruitment & Assignment; (5) Personnel Appraisal; (6) Learning & Development; (7) Compensation & Benefit; (8) Corporate Culture; (9) Laws on Labour, and (10) Life Management Program.

Trainers of the program are seasoned experts in human resources management. They have in-depth knowledge of the latest trends in human resources management in Vietnam and worldwide. PACE’s trainers are dedicated to helping participants upgrade their human resource systems so that they can more successfully compete and integrate into the international market.
