Quarter One RWHRMA President’s Blog

In Uncategorized on March 19, 2013 by RWHRMA Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Be the catalyst for driving innovative leadership around the globe. As the RWHRMA 2013 President, my goal is to continue this vision which was initiated in 2012. As we begin the year with challenges expected, I know that RWHRMA will meet this goal.
Ongoing initiatives include supporting the Raleigh Rescue Mission and The Healing Place as well as our interactive Members in Transition committee. Our members rally to support The Healing Place, an organization that provides substance abuse rehabilitation for men and women who are also homeless. Their goal is an individual who is fully integrated back into the community, including employment. RWHRMA volunteers conduct Mock Interviews for their clients, providing interview and resume building experience and guidance. Our member in transition committee meets monthly to network and receive valuable insight on job searching from community professionals. We are continuing or Compensation & Benefits Forums focused on compensation, benefits and wellness updates and initiatives. Our Master Series continues as well, providing half day sessions focused on strategic HR initiatives designed to support our members that thrive on continued education. We are continuing to engage our executive-level members via the Executive Think Tank.
New and exciting initiatives are many! We hosted our very first Strategic HR Summit in February 2013. The event was quite the success with over 80 attendees, which provided for an intimate and interactive atmosphere of learning.
With the beginning of 2013 we also launched Get Fit for the Foundation, monthly fitness initiatives hosted throughout the community to promote health & wellness while also raising funds for the SHRM Foundation. January marked the introduction of Crossfit to our members, while February welcomed Step Aerobics and March will stretch us via Yoga Foundations. April 20, 2013, will mark our very first annual 5K fun run event, Human Resources Being Community Resources. After our target fundraising goal is met for the SHRM Foundation, all proceeds will be split evenly between Raleigh Rescue Mission and The Healing Place.
By offering advanced programming and extraordinary community service, I am sure our chapter will execute its vision!
