HRO Today Association Update: Getting More

By Renee Preston

The HRO Today Association designs events in different formats to give members multiple opportunities to connect with its global network and learn. One of our most popular options is our “HR Table Talks” series, which allows members to connect directly with their peers to share their experiences and get their questions answered.

Created to provide a safe space in which members can feel comfortable discussing sensitive and challenging issues, the “HR Table Talks” series focuses on topics like diversity, inclusion, recognition, engagement, candidate experience, and more. “HR Table Talks” are not webinars; they are virtual conversations that enable members to connect on specific topics, get advice, and share best practices. Our next “Table Talk” will take place September 21st with a conversation on Weighing the Value and Effectiveness of Your Recognition Program for 2022. Members should reserve their place now as space is very limited -visit www.hrotoday.com/association/hr-table-talks.

Another valuable way to learn from other members is through the HRO Today Association Awards program. Time is running out to submit nominations for 2021! This year we will recognize both nonmembers and members of our Association who have led their teams through one of the most turbulent times in recent history. Help us celebrate their hard work, dedication to the industry, and ongoing interest in sharing best practices and learning. Award categories include:

• Executive HR Champion
• Leadership Award
• Thought Leadership (HR Excellence) Award

• Best In Class: Candidate Experience/Reputation
• Business Partnership Excellence
• Diversity and Inclusion Excellence
• HR Team of the Year
• Innovation in HR Technology
• Recruitment Team of the Year
• Thought Leadership (HR Excellence) Award

The awards for the EMEA and North America regions will be presented during the HRO Today Association Conference, a virtual event on Wednesday, November 17, 2021. Awards for the APAC region will be presented during a virtual ceremony on December 16, 2021 at 8PM ET. But before you can take your place on the virtual stage, you must submit your nomination at www.hrotoday.com/hro-today-association-awards.

Lastly, I encourage you to reserve your seat now for the 2021 HRO Today Association Conference, being held November 17th from 12 to 4PM ET. This virtual HR retreat will examine “New Operational Excellence” and how it will succeed in getting people back to work in an almost unrecognizable business environment. Explore what this unique challenge means for your organization and formulate solutions alongside subject matter experts and peers. Dr. Peter Cappelli, director of the Wharton Center for Human Resources, will share his research on “The Future of the Office” and a panel of CHROs will discuss their plans for operational excellence in 2022. I hope to see you logged on!
