SBill Greenhalgheeking nominations for the 2016 HRPA Volunteer Excellence Awards

Do you know an HRPA volunteer who deserves to be recognized?

Nominate them for HRPA’s 2016 Volunteer Awards—our annual awards program that shines a light on volunteer excellence, honours recipients, and recognizes contributions to the profession, successful workplaces, the Association and its chapters and the elevation of the practice of Human Resources management.

HRPA is looking for nominations for members who have demonstrated excellence through their dedication to volunteering during the past year: academics who have gone above and beyond to make exceptional contributions to the HR profession; volunteers who constantly propel the Association forward; and individuals who help to promote the HR profession in their communities.

HRPA members are involved in a variety of volunteer opportunities, including charting the direction for the Association and the profession, by regulating the profession through the work of our Statutory and Standing Committees and supporting the HR community through local chapters and committees as well as steering professional development and conference design and support.

HRPA’s mission is to set the standards of learning, competence and conduct for members to enhance the standing of the human resources profession while protecting the public.  We could not do that without committed and engaged volunteers. HRPA relies on volunteers to achieve its strategic objectives.

Let’s honour the 1000+ HRPA volunteers that make this happen.

Learn more and submit your nomination for the 2016 HRPA Volunteer Excellence Awards today.

HRPA volunteers are also invited to nominate themselves. Deadline to apply or nominate is October 31, 2016 at 5:00 p.m.

Seeking volunteers for Global harmonized HR competency framework

And speaking of volunteers doing great work on behalf of the profession, HRPA is currently seeking volunteers to sit on a new Standards Canada committee (of which I’ve been appointed chair) which will work to help create a global agreement on a harmonized HR competency framework—similar to HRPA’s new competency framework.

HRPA recently received approval from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to set up a working group for a global harmonized framework. Such a global framework is key to professionalizing the HR profession around the world, including exchangeable, valued and credible designations based on a global body of standardized HR knowledge that this group will seek to create.

If you’re interested in volunteering on this committee or would like to view HRPA’s full list of volunteer opportunities please click here.

Best regards,

Bill Greenhalgh
