I'm delighted to welcome you to the December/
January 2017 issue of HRMonthly and thank you for
your continued interest in AHRI's flagship magazine
for its members.
This is also an opportunity for me to tell you about
some changes planned for HRMonthly in the new
year, changes that are designed to coincide with the
much anticipated AHRI rebranding. In her column
on page 8, AHRI's CEO, Lyn Goodear, introduces
the ideas behind the rebranding in more detail.
The opportunity to step back and reflect on
your work, your profession and your organisation
is always useful, as recent successful candidates
from AHRI's HR certification pathways testify in
these pages each month.
The rebranding exercise has given AHRI that
opportunity to reflect and the result is an outward
expression of an increased, inner confidence at work
in the HR profession, gearing itself for the new
business challenges ahead.
In line with the rebranding, HRMonthly will also
be getting a refresh, and that is partly the reason
for my talking to you now. We never forget that this
magazine belongs to AHRI members, and we always
appreciate any feedback that you give us -- positive
and negative. Wherever we can make improvements,
we are happy to do so.
With this in mind, HRMonthly and hrmonline.
com.au are keen to offer members a chance to
contribute to these AHRI publications by sharing
experiences, exchanging ideas, making connections,
and thus building an even stronger sense of
community among HR practitioners.
For that reason, I want to publicise a few new
initiatives. Firstly, we will be resurrecting a Letters
page beginning in February. I encourage you to
contribute your thoughts and reactions via email
to anything that you have read in the magazine or
AHRI events that you have attended.
Secondly, we will be introducing a Case Study
each month that looks at a particular challenge faced
by an organisation and how HR responded. Our
first example will look at The Star Group, which
recognised a problem of a lack of diversity among
its senior management team and the path it took
towards changing this.
Among our regular items, the Meet... column,
where we talk to a member of AHRI, continues to
be popular. At the last National Convention, I was
fortunate enough to meet several members who
were happy to put themselves forward for interview.
We took the opportunity to have those members
photographed professionally during the convention,
so that we had good images to accompany the
articles. We will be repeating this at all of AHRI's big
conferences, so do please get in contact if you would
like to take part.
The same goes for the item where we focus on
an AHRI member's career path. If you have had a
particularly interesting career trajectory with some
'watershed' moments, then we would like to hear
Equally, if you have an anecdote that taught you an
important career lesson, we would love to help you
share that with other AHRI members.
Meanwhile, hrmonline.com.au goes from strength
to strength as the numbers of you engaging with our
digital content increases. We particularly welcome
well-written opinion pieces and letters from AHRI
members on topical issues affecting HR practitioners.
While we can't guarantee publication, we can offer
guidelines on how you go about submitting an idea
or a piece to us. Please don't hesitate to drop us a line
All that remains for me to say is to wish all AHRI
members a healthy and happy festive season and
prosperous new year. We look forward to talking
with you again in February.
