As 2016 begins, we at HRO Today Global Magazine look forward to theÂ upcoming year. We hope everyone is ready to make some new resolutionsÂ about their career life and to commit to focusing on their well-being.
This is my first issue as an editor of HRO Today Global Magazine, and I welcomeÂ the opportunity to learn as much as I can in order to provide the most timely,Â accurate, and important information about what is happening in the industry.
In this issue, we look at the importance of human resources throughout oneâsÂ life and career, as well as the importance of employee well-being. We haveÂ a feature on relocation and the benefits of travel and working abroad onÂ assignment. This experience greatly enhanced our contributorâs life, and heÂ reports on the important things he learned in his career abroad. We also haveÂ an article that discusses the results of our recent employee well-being surveyâthe index has dropped to lowest level since the studyâs inception. With a focusÂ on employees and on talent, we feature an HR Top Trends Q&A with AccentureâsÂ Veerle Dero, who discusses the âworkforce of oneâ and how employee wellbeingÂ is critical to finding and retaining high-quality recruits.
We also take a look at our readers and association members. D. Zachary Misko,Â our vice president and global executive director, discusses in his column how theÂ group of practitioners, providers, thought leaders, analysts, and industry expertsÂ has helped us have a successful 2015.
As I begin my tenure here, I am excited to learn about everything this industryÂ has to offer. The topic of human resources is critically important to me, and IÂ encourage readers to email me any ideas they may have for the magazine, orÂ just to say hello.
