Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies (CAHRS) at Cornell University’s School


Steven M. Darien leverages more than 30 years of experience in strategic planning and human resources to serve as the chairman and CEO of the Cabot Advisory Group in New Jersey. On top of his responsibilities with Cabot, Steven M. Darien has held leadership roles with several other organizations, including a seat on the Advisory Board of the Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies (CAHRS) at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations.

CAHRS recently issued a press release to discuss the results of a Working Group (WG) session led by CAHRS managing director Steve Miranda on March, 31, 2015, that focused on the role of human resources in globalization. During the session, group members agreed that despite a large variation in revenue growth among the attending partner companies, human resources organizations face the same increasing pressure to develop global expertise.

The group reflected that the accelerated pace at which organizations must become globally adept has been influenced by numerous factors, such as enhanced qualifications in foreign markets, global labor arbitrage, and growth of the global economy. Through the WG session, participants isolated four main areas for human resources professionals to focus on in relation to globalizing an enterprise’s human resources function.
