HRO Today Announces New Trusted Supplier Certification Program

Philadelphia, PA – June 21, 2018 – HRO Today has announced the creation of a new certification program for human resources services providers.

The Trusted Supplier Certification Program will launch in January 2019 as part of the HRO Today Services and Technology Association, the premier membership channel dedicated to providing professional development, peer-to-peer networking, and exposure to topical service and technology advancements that help improve both members’ businesses and the HR industry as a whole.  HR providers that participate will have the opportunity to be designated as trusted providers in the industry and held accountable to leading standards of ethics and performance.  The Trusted Supplier Certification Program differs from and will not impact the ranking program of the HRO Today magazine Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings which are highly respected.

“Since 2002, HRO Today has been an unrivalled resource of both content and connections that have helped shape the HR industry,” said Zachary Misko, President of HRO Today Member Services and Executive Director of the HRO Today Services and Technology Association.  “The Trusted Supplier Certification Program is the latest way we are promoting transparency in the industry and raising the bar for providers.”

Jersey Girl and Proud

HRO Today

By Debbie Bolla

Being a female executive and having lived in New Jersey for the majority of my life, it was a proud moment when Governor Phil Murphy signed the Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act earlier this year. The legislation promotes equal pay to all groups of employees—a significant step given that according to the National Women’s Law Center, a full-time working woman would need to work an additional 10 years to close the current lifetime wage gap.

While this legislation is a historic move toward workplace equality, there are many more to go. That’s one reason this issue features a special section on diversity and inclusion (D&I). In the cover story, The Face of Inclusion, CHRO and TA leaders offer insight into the key attributes of a successful program.

Change is Good

HRO Today

By Debbie Bolla

Not in a million years did I ever think I’d have a virtual assistant at my fingertips to help me keep track of all my never-ending deadlines. Or that I would never need a paper map again. Or that I would plug in my son’s light-up shoes with a USB to charge them. But that is life today, and with technology, it’s only going to change more.

In this issue’s cover story, HRO Today’s Associate Editor Marta Chmielowicz thoroughly examines how artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning will continue to impact the daily lives of HR executives and how they manage the workforce.

A Technology Focus

HRO Today STA

By D. Zachary Misko

This year’s theme of the HRO Today Forum North America is “Driving Corporate Strategy.” Despite the technology disruption that has roiled much of global business, the need to attract, retain, protect, and serve employees has insulated companies. But now, change is washing over how companies do business and sending ripples across the HR industry. HR is officially being shaken by the tech invasion.

As you will learn from our Forum speakers, panels, and sessions, a rising cohort of tech-enabled leaders are rethinking business and reacting with more creative models. The finalists in our iTalent competition are not surprisingly a part of this movement; they are investing in this vision of the future. Throughout the Forum, we will explore this further and amplify the highest standards of human resources in the management and support of services, technologies, and overall HR functions.

Thought Leaders Unite

HRO Today STA

By D. Zachary Misko

Thought leaders are the informed opinion leaders and the go-to people in their field of expertise. They are trusted sources who move and inspire people with innovative ideas, turn ideas into reality, and show how to replicate their success. We certainly have a great group of thought leaders and innovators involved in our association and our HRO Today Forum events, as demonstrated by the outstanding group of senior HR executives, thought leaders, and industry experts who attend and speak at our events, in our magazine, and in our association.

The HRO Today Services and Technology Association is a global association of the top HR experts working in roles as practitioners, providers, and analysts. Whilst the Forum is an excellent opportunity for our members and each of the Forum delegates to participate in thought leadership through great conversations and best practice sharing, the association allows you to continue these actions daily. If you are not already a member of the HRO Today Association, I urge you to join and keep the conversation, connections, and learning active every month.
