From the Desk of the CEO


Human Resource Management (HRM) practices are interconnected with product, processes and knowledge innovation. The key purpose of HRM is to achieve a sustainable organizational outcome through people and marketplace competitiveness.

With the right approach using global standards, HRM can be more than just a cost center for any business. It can be an instrument to create and maintain sustainable business values. HRCI as the premier credentialing and learning organization is the appointed international secretariat for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee on Human Resource Management (TC-260).

In this role, we are looking forward to providing effective leadership to continue the development of additional standards to guide and optimize organizational performance, value-creation, sustainable development and workforce productivity/satisfaction.

To further expand on how HRM can create sustainable business value, join me next week for HRCI’s next installment of Higher Standard - Making an Impact: Strategic Partnerships and Organizational Alignment for HR Professionals.

This free event will feature three daily presentations on March 22-24 from 1-2:30p ET from industry experts discussing how organizations form a strategic partnership and alignment with HR and their workforce. .


Keep on Learning!
