HRO Today Association Update: Come to the Table

By Renée Preston

In mid-March, the HRO Today Association held its first “HR Table Talk.” Created to provide a safe space in which members can feel comfortable discussing challenging issues, the “HR Table Talk” series focuses on critical topics such as HR technology, recognition, engagement, candidate experience, and more. Attendance is limited to create a feeling of closeness and security. Sessions are not recorded so participants can be completely open and honest when talking about their most pressing concerns. Talks are jointly facilitated by practitioner and provider members who help guide the conversation, offering their unique perspectives and expertise.

At our first “Talk,” members came together to discuss one of the most important issues in the workforce today: diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I). Last year’s events placed a spotlight on the need for equal opportunities for all and forced organizations to quickly reshape their values and practices. With the assistance of facilitators from Yoh and KenCrest, participants had a very progressive, enlightening, and inspirational conversation. Members talked about DE&I being a journey and shared useful information and tips, including:

HRO Today Association Update: Going Strong

By Renée Preston

HRO Today’s CHRO Today Executive Network (C-TEN) will soon celebrate its fourth anniversary. It’s been a rewarding journey to develop this unique community that caters to the needs of top HR leaders. The fact that our founding members have renewed their membership year after year and the group has experienced steady growth, even during a global pandemic, confirms that C-TEN is an important resource for senior HR leaders.

During a recent meeting, members shared their best practices on crisis management. Several important takeaways came out of the discussion, in particular the notion that effective crisis management requires the cooperation and coordination of many stakeholders within the organization, including teams from HR, legal, IT, finance, operations, and public relations.

HRO Today Association Update: Let’s Talk!

By Renée Preston

I’d like to start by welcoming our new members, CVS Health and Wallace Foundation, to the HRO Today Association community! I’m also pleased to mention Hueman People Solutions has become the latest HRO Today Certified Provider. The HRO Today Certified Provider Certification indicates a provider has undergone evaluation and testing to verify they are a credible and trusted HR service provider. This is the most important form of certification in our industry, as it ensures customers have access to qualified service providers in the HR services and technology industry.

The Association continues to focus on connecting members to share best and next practices, and that’s why I’m excited to announce the launch of our new HR Table Talks series. This quarterly series provides a safe space for members to connect and have authentic and sincere conversations about sensitive topics. Attendance will be limited to create a feeling of closeness and security, and the sessions will not be recorded so participants can be completely open and honest when talking about their most pressing concerns.
