Are you investing in your future success?


We have made it this far and despite the many challenges we continue to face, we keep moving forward.

With less than one month left in the third quarter of 2020, how are you doing with respect to re-balancing your professional portfolio? Have you taken time to reflect on how you can sharpen your saw through professional development?  As you consider the pace at which our businesses are changing, do you feel you still have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to remain the “go-to” person in your organization?

Being an HRACC member puts you in touch with ample resources that support your ability to remain in the know about all things HR.  During this pandemic, HRACC has worked diligently to offer webinars related to legal issues, racism, employee engagement and so much more. Have you benefited from attending any of these sessions?  Are you signed up for any of the programs currently listed on the events page of the HRACC website?

Further, you have access to professional development through our partnership with CCSU.  There are still a few spots left for those of you willing to jump in today and invest in your professional growth for tomorrow.  Beyond, these resources, your dual membership with SHRM offers you access to many other fabulous tools and experts.

The world is not waiting for us.  If we are to remain relevant, we need to re-examine the rapidly changing world we are working in and find ways to retain a balanced professional portfolio of skills.  There is great risk in depending too much on a few strengths.  Strengths today may lose value in the changing business landscape.

Do we have the skill sets to create and execute on policies that ensure diversity and inclusion of our talent?  Are we leveraging analytics to intentionally develop strategies that sustain an engaged and productive workforce?  Are we leveraging technology in a meaningful and deliberate way?  An outside-in perspective is what we all need to challenge our thinking, inspire innovation, and ensure that we are working at the top of our profession.

School’s back in session. 
How are you investing in your future success?
