With Collaboration firmly in place, delivery of service to members has become a shared responsibility between HRIA and the Regional Associations. Together, we deliver a broad range of services to our collective membership.
HRIA’s role in collaboration is to focus on province wide initiatives servicing all members, providing the tools and resources needed to stay up-to-date and current in their practice through items such as; certification/re-certification; continuing education offerings and partnerships, NETWORK Magazine, eSource monthly e-newsletter, annual conference, mentorship program, virtual AGM.
The role of the Regional Associations is to deliver local, regionally focused, services for professional development and networking.
Just as the role of an HR Professional has evolved and matured, so has our association and we are now in a position to begin to address the needs of all of our stakeholders leading us to a new vision for HRIA.
What is the future of the HR profession?
Thinking long-term, five, ten, even twenty years from now, what needs to happen for HR to evolve to our desired level of recognition and credibility amongst our various stakeholders? What would we be doing and how would we be perceived?
Providing services to members will always be a priority, but it is not our only priority. With Collaboration in place, the provision of services will be in a balanced harmonized service model allowing HRIA to develop a disciplined and focused strategy addressing external stakeholders and external initiatives that will elevate the profession of human resources working towards our “big hairy audacious goal” (BHAG):
We will have influence in every business and government in Alberta
The new strategic model illustrated below focuses on the long-term ten year horizon addressing the needs of all of our stakeholders.
