The C-suite in most organizations consists of the CEO, CFO, CIO and/or COO, while HR is placed at D-level (i.e., directorate designation). Historically, when it came to HR professionals, the edict was to "fight for a seat at the table" or "prove your worth" when it came to reporting directly to the CEO. HR is still widely viewed as a strictly transactional processing center filled with paper pushers who only exist to say "no" to everything.

This outdated thinking holds many organizations back. You can read any business publication for countless examples of organizations that don't have HR represented in their C-suite and the trouble and challenges they encounter as a result. Often, HR is only included after something goes awry or requires some cleanup, even though experience tells us that is not optimal.
