Committee Projects Get Underway, Volunteer Opportunities Still Available

HRO Today Association Committees are in full swing in 2024; meeting as a full committee in February and identifying an initial slate of projects for the year.

The Member Resources and Engagement committee is responsible for ensuring that the professional development and networking activities of the HRO Today Association meet members’ needs. They have identified three project areas in 2024::

  • Expanding professional development options to include short-form pre-recorded video learning series.
  • Improving the user interface and experience of the Association’s website.
  • Generating broader and more consistent member engagement

Thank you to our 2024 Member Resources and Engagement Committee members: Wendy DiMartino, Korn Ferry (Co-Chair); Karen Feeney, KenCrest (Co-Chair); Darren Bartholomew, Leonardo; Cristine Kane, Hudson RPO; James Mitchinson, EverHive; Derkia Peralta, Marriott Vacations Worldwide; Alyssa Thach, Pierpoint; Ashley Veney, GNC; and Sandra Zawacki, Sevenstep.

The Standards & Practices committee directs the Association’s activities for advancing the practice for human resources. They have identified two project areas in 2024:

  • Developing an organizational standards board/Code of Ethics to ensure a minimum level of performance is maintained from provider to practitioner.
  • Developing resources and support around HR technologies to further support HR practitioner members.

Thank you to our 2024 Standards and Practices Committee members: Brian Bules (Co-Chair); Brian Knapp, Sevenstep; Predrag Pivarski, HTEC Group; Maria Rosploch, KellyOCG; Antoine Starek, Capgemini; Zarina Tasheva, Uz-Kor Gas Chemical, LLC; and Greg Vaughn, Pierpoint.
