A few years ago Compass Career Management Solutions created a free venue for those experienced human resources professionals, who usually make decisions, develop programs, and seek resolutions for new situations, as well as implement those decisions and practices regarding employees in the workplace.
Since their roles directly involve those persons/employees in the workplaces, the situations/circumstances can easily involve personal, sensitive, or emotional matters. The scenarios can vary in importance and urgency. Over the decades some of the issues have dealt with health or the medical arena. Needless to say, it is very critical for these HR Professionals not only confer with their business attorneys on some matters, but it is also helpful to seek and gather insight and experiences in a timely manner from their fellow HR Professionals.
In the past the Senior HR Forum has only met twice a year, and sometimes less than that. However, there has been a suggestion/request to try meeting more often. Keeping in mind how busy most of these Sr HR Professionals are, and that there are certain times of year that are even more demanding, I will send out a notice the early part of January 2020 to inquire who might be interested in meeting 3 or 4 times a year with some meetings offered over the lunch hour to provide an alternative. Those interested in hosting can let me know 1) what 2 or 3 dates would be a good for you, as well as a preference for morning or lunch.
Some of the topics we discussed at our recent meeting (November) included the topics of a) Performance Management programs that work; b) Employee Branding, c) Employee Surveys; d) Succession Planning; and e) Benefits (including ways to address “mental health”), etc.
Those who have participated in the Senior Human Resources Forum in the past have expressed an appreciation for exchanging ideas, experiences and resources with their colleagues. These meetings also allow attendees to grow a network of trusted HR Professionals. A link to the Compass Career Management website re: the registration for the Sr. HR Forum will also be shared with my future notice. Registration will be on our website: www.compasscareer.com.
With so many changes happening for HR Professionals, this venue makes sense to meet occasionally and talk through some of the developments that cross your plates. There is never any judgment or criticism as all are trying to gather rational and successful insight to the latest developments. This is all for mutual support.
If a senior HR Professional in our Charlotte Metro is interested in adding his/her name and contact info to the list for future attendees of this venue, simply email Robyn Crigger, CEO, Compass Career Management Solutions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone: 704-849-2500.
