HRO Today STA Update: Certifiably the Busiest January Yet

HR Association

By D. Zachary Misko

Welcome to 2019! For those that took time at the end of last year to prepare, congratulations. Based on industry buzz, you’re only putting in 60-hour work weeks! For those that are still wrapping up strategic planning, setting priorities, and/or creating marketing and employer branding plans, better luck next year. As usual, it seems that each year we get busier than the last, with more being added to our plates with every turn of the calendar page whether it be products to create and sell, solutions to retire or improve, budgets to manage, and customers to service. Phew, it’s daunting sometimes, isn’t it?

The HRO Today Global HR Association recognizes that you are busy and that your time is valuable. We also know that you still require access to research, best practices, industry tools, references, and a network of experts who can help. So we took that into consideration as we set our priorities and plan for 2019. A list of our products, services, and resources to help you work smarter, not harder, is available on our website. You’ll find things that have been in place since the association was formed as well as new and improved offerings for this year.

HRO Today STA Update: Thought Leaders Unite

HR Association

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 our association.

The HRO Today Services and Technology Association is a global association of HR executives, thought leaders, and industry experts working in roles as practitioners, providers and analysts. While 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 do so and keep the conversation, connections and learning, active every month.

A Technology Focus

HR Association

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.

The Greatest HR Awards on Earth

HRO Today Services and Technology Association

By D. Zachary Misko

Recognition continues to be an important part of employee engagement, corporate culture, and our global HR association. For the past 10 years, the HRO Today Services and Technology Association awards have been a highlight at our annual HRO Today Forums and an aspiration for those in the HR industry worldwide. This year, we’ve decided to do something different and will be recognizing our North America finalists and winners separate from the HRO Today Forum. Our Association Award Dinner and Gala will be held in conjunction with our first HRO Today Services and Technology Association Summit, a conference and training retreat for HR services and technology providers, analysts, and practitioners working in or with a services partner. This event will take place October 17th and 18th at the Union League in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Awards Dinner and Gala will be held the evening of October 18th.

Each year, the association selects a theme that the awards criteria revolve around. The theme of this year’s program is The Greatest HR Awards on Earth – Honoring the Best in HR. Winners for North America will be revealed this year at the HRO Today Services and Technology Association Summit and the EMEA and APAC awards winners will be announced, as usual, at their respective regional HRO Today Forum events in Amsterdam and Hong Kong.
