I’ve been a long-term member of my local SHRM Chapter – the Greater Cincinnati Human Resources Association – and have served on both the Staffing & Recruiting and Communications Committees in an effort learn from others, meet people and to give back to my community. If you’re not involved with your local chapter, I highly recommend it!
Recently, I also volunteered to be a part of the Strategic Planning Team for GCHRA and we’re going to spend the next several weeks developing a Plan to recommend to the Board that will provide focus to the organization in an effort to best serve its membership for the next 3 years. I’m excited about being involved and look forward to working with some super smart people in the process.
That’s where you come in! My first assignment is to come back to the Team with a list of current priorities and focus areas for Human Resources and Human Capital professionals to ensure that our committee is addressing what is important to the GCHRA membership.
As a start, I’ve pulled some data from a recent Human Resources Executive Online survey on “What’s Keeping HR Leaders Awake?”. With 1,032 responses, I think the survey results provide a good start – with the 3 biggest challenges for HR identified to be:
- Leadership Development
But I want to know what YOU think!
- What’s keeping you awake at night as an HR/Recruiting/Talent Management professional?
- What are you spending the majority of your time on these days?
- Do what’s keeping you awake and where you spend your time align?
- Are you still looking for the roadmap to find your seat at the table? (I kid. I kid.)
Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section. I have homework due this week and I want to impress the Teacher! 🙂
