Chief People Officer.. nice ring to it but it is just a title

I applaud organizations who have a CPO instead of a director of Human Resources.  I'm not a human resource or human capital.  I'm not a pool of talent.  I'm Rob.  What are the practices behind "People" officer?  There ought to be people-centric policies and work environments and 'personal' leadership in organizations to support that great title.  Comment here and make it Personal!
