HRINZ (3) Weekly Wrap-up 30 March – 12 April

HRINZ (3) Weekly Wrap-up 30 March – 12 April

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. It’s been three weeks now since the last Weekly Wrap-up and it feels like a very long time! The NZ HR Awards are beginning to feel like a distant memory after all that has passed with the Easter break, daylight saving, school holidays etc, and yet I still haven’t given you a blog recap of the event. While I won’t go into details (you can read more in the upcoming April/May issue of HumanResources) I will say that the Presentation Dinner was a wonderful celebration of success and achievement, and, according to the large volume of positive feedback we have received, an enjoyable evening was had by all who attended. Even the ever present Auckland drizzle didn’t manage to put a damper on things! As previously mentioned, the event was a sellout, with people even trying to get tickets right up to a couple of hours before the start, so the lesson here for next year is to book early if you’d like to come along. We’ll be back in Auckland on Thursday, 25 February 2016, so be sure to mark it in your diary now! Another date to mark in the diary is October 1 2015, as this is when entries will be opening for the 2016 NZ HR Awards. If you think that perhaps you and/or your team have got what it takes, then why not step up and put in an entry? It’s an excellent process of reflection and evaluation to take...

Reflections on Health Benefits of (Good) Work – with Dame Carol Black...

Reflections on Health Benefits of (Good) Work – with Dame Carol Black

HRINZ Chief Executive, Chris Till, shares inspiration and ideas from a recent seminar with Dame Carol Black. I was privileged to recently attend a presentation from Dame Carol Black from the UK, arranged by the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, on:- “The Health Benefits of (Good) Work – Implications for New Zealand.” The presentation was delivered in Wellington on 1st April. I was one of the few HR practitioners there (the event was free) and the attendees were mostly occupational and health care professionals, social services and related disciplines. One of my motivations in writing this blog is to try to offset the missed opportunity for HR practitioners to access, understand and promulgate the key, highly important messages that Dame Carol delivered. I know that the research she quoted is primarily UK based but I am also sure that it is highly appropriate and applicable for us here in New Zealand. Dame Carol is Principal of Newnham College, Cambridge, UK. She is  Adviser on Work and Health at the Department of Health, England; Chair of the Nuffield Trust and Chair of the Governance Board, Centre for Workforce Intelligence. As an expert adviser to the UK Department of Health, Dame Carol plays a major ambassadorial role, building and promoting the public and policy position on the positive relationship between work and health in the UK. Previously she was the first National Director for Health and Work (2006–2011), a role created in the UK to provide independent leadership to a cross-Government health, work and...

HRINZ Weekly Wrap-up 16 March – 22 March

HRINZ Weekly Wrap-up 16 March – 22 March

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. This week has just flown by! It’s hard to believe that Friday has arrived quite so quickly. Although it was actually Monday, it seems only yesterday that our branch committee members were arriving for Orientation Day. It was great to have some of our wonderful volunteers visit us for the day, and I know the whole Head Office Team enjoyed meeting everyone and putting faces to names. It’s always interesting to see if the image you create of someone when you’re communicating via email matches up in real life! Unfortunately due to the weather and some unexpected plane issues, several members were not able to make it to Wellington, but by the sounds of it, those who could get here found it very beneficial. I’d like to give an extra shout-out to those who travelled all the way from the deep south, it shows real dedication and commitment which we truly appreciate. Judging by the discussions happening on the day, the branches have some excellent things planned for the year, so make sure you get along and take advantage of what’s on offer locally. Excitement is building around the office with the NZ HR Awards Presentation Dinner taking place next week. There is still much work to be done with seating arrangements, tickets, speeches, presentations etc, but it’s great to see it all coming together. We’re also delighted at the response we have received to the Presentation...

HRINZ Weekly Wrap-up 9 March – 15 March

HRINZ Weekly Wrap-up 9 March – 15 March

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. The office is a hive of activity this afternoon as we all prepare for Orientation Day, which is taking place here on Monday. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming around 30 committee members from across the country to our home, although it will be a tight squeeze to fit everyone in! Hopefully it will be a lovely Wellington day, allowing us to make use of our balcony space overlooking Willis Street. Debbie Dawson will be acting as facilitator, and each member of the HRINZ Office Team will be making an appearance throughout the day to talk about what we do and how we can work together with committee members to deliver excellent events and support to our members at the branch level. Head back here next week for a recap of the event, and some photos from the day. I’m sure everyone will find the networking and discussions with fellow committee members very beneficial and enjoyable! Also enjoyable, will be the NZ HR Awards Presentation Dinner which is now only a week and a half away. Tickets have sold out, so it’s going to be a full house, and, no doubt, a great night! Apologies to those who missed out on tickets, although, we did warn you all to book early to avoid disappointment. However, if you have missed out on a spot this year, never fear, as I will be busy live tweeting the whole...

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. I’m sorry to say that’s it folks. This weekend, as February turns to March, summer also gives way to autumn. The days are growing noticeably shorter and I’ve found myself reaching for a jacket to combat that slight chill in the morning air most days. However, it’s entirely possible that this is applicable only to Wellington, and that the rest of the country is still basking in tropical temperatures! I guess one good thing about the cooler weather is that at least here in the HRINZ office we don’t feel regret at being inside at our desks all day! Of course, rain or shine, the work continues, so read on to find out what’s been keeping us on our toes the past couple of weeks… With the NZ HR Awards Presentation Dinner now less than a month away, preparations are really kicking up a notch. I am pleased to confirm that we have the results through from the judges for a couple of awards, and should be able to announce the finalists for all categories late next week. The Events Team have also been busy working with our designers on menus, programmes, powerpoints, seating charts, certificates etc and there is still plenty to be done before the big night. We also had our first HR Foundations course of the year taking place in Wellington from Wednesday to Friday, and it was great to see it completely...

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. After a brief hiatus due to Waitangi Day last Friday, the Weekly Wrap-up is back with two weeks worth of news to catch you up on. On that note, I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend, enjoying what remains of the summer weather. I know the team here found the extra day of rest beneficial as it’s been a very busy couple of weeks with no signs of it slowing down any time soon! Read on to find out what we’ve been up to… The next couple of months are a full on time of year for our Membership Team with plenty of balls in the air at once. The biggest beast is, of course, the annual membership subscription billing process. With so many great things on the horizon, we sincerely hope you choose to continue as a HRINZ member, and you can help out the team here by ensuring that your details are up to date in your membership profile. It’s a simple task but important task and will ensure the process runs smoothly for all involved! Applications for the Student Ambassador Programme also open on Monday which is pretty exciting. We had a fantastic bunch of student ambassadors representing HRINZ in 2014, and you can read their reflections from their time in the role in a new series of blogs starting Monday. Keep an eye out for them! If anyone you know is studying HR then do...

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. Just like that, there goes the first month of 2015! Consensus around the office seems to be that January always goes by in a flash and it’s February before you know it. For a change, we’ve been enjoying some glorious weather in Wellington over the past week, and while this makes it a little harder to be indoors at a computer screen, we’ve had another productive week to round out the first month of the year. Christine and Saasha, who form our membership team, are busy at this time of year providing support to our branches as they finalise their new committees for 2015/16 and put the finishing touches on their event programmes. Beth, our office and branch administrator, reports that registrations for branch events have got off to a flying start this year which is great to see. I guess either you’re all extremely keen to get back into it, or we have a lot of people who made resolutions around networking and professional development! Whatever your motivation, we’re delighted to have you along. We’re also pleased to confirm that Drake New Zealand will be continuing their generous sponsorship of HR Connect events around the country, so the free coffees and catch-ups will continue! Speaking of catch-ups, HRINZ CE, Chris, will be heading to Hawke’s Bay Branch to talk about the current status of HRINZ; plans and current initiatives for 2015;...

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. Welcome to 2015 and to the first Weekly Wrap-up of the year! It’s great to be back. Although the HRINZ team started work again on 5 Jan, I decided to give the blog another couple of weeks off, until we really got into the swing of things. The majority of people seem to be back in the office now as well, with the streets filling up once more with suits and ties rather than jandals and t-shirts. It can be a sad moment as you prepare for that first day back to reality, but it doesn’t take too long to settle into routine, the summer holiday fading to a distant memory. Of course it’s positive too, as the New Year is also traditionally the time for new beginnings and a chance to start over, putting troubles of the past behind us and looking forward to a better and brighter future. I’m not really one for resolutions, but I think most of us like to take a moment to reflect on the year past, and to consider what we’d like to achieve over the next 12 months. 2015 will hopefully bring some great things for HRINZ. We have a lot of initiatives and plans in the pipeline, and I look forward to sharing them with you in the blog over the course of the year. So, without further ado, here’s what the HRINZ...

Enjoy the Ride – A crystal ball look into 2015 from a people angle...

posted on: Jan 9, 2015 | author: Chris Till

HRINZ Chief Executive, Chris Till, shares his thoughts on what’s in store for 2015… If 2014 is anything to go by 2015 will be at least as full of VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous) as any business year any of us have known. Better “hang on to yourself” – it will be a hell of a ride! There is a world context brought about by increasing globalisation, inexorable demographics, rampant advances in technology, massive disruption and unrivalled knowledge, perception and opinion sharing through social media. This global context means that New Zealand, as small and remote as we are, will be increasingly buffeted by some very significant (and unavoidable) “mega trends”. Here are the top six:- Much more volatile and less predictable economies, nation states and movements A continued shift towards value in “intangibles” Work which is much more networked, collaborative and flexible Workplaces which are a complex mix of formal structures and informal social systems Diverse, aware and demanding workforces A marked shift in what defines a successful, contemporary leadership style. So, within this global context what will be the big emerging trends in the New Zealand people space against a local backdrop of increasing, critical focus on the need to improve NZ’s productivity, sub-optimal people leadership performance and highly questionable health and safety track record? Leadership renaissance We are already seeing the old, command and control styles of people leadership coming under increasing pressure as scarce, talented workers vote with their feet. And who can blame them when...

From our desks to your screen. Here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. Well, here we are at the final Weekly Wrap-up for 2014, and what a year it has been! Starting on 6 January, over the course of 44 blog posts I’ve shared with you all what we’ve been up to in the HRINZ Office week in and week out. Whether you’re a regular reader or just pop by every now and then, I hope that you’ve enjoyed this little insight into the engine room of your professional membership association. Each Friday I email the team to find out what’s been keeping them busy that week and if there’s anything interesting for the blog. I’ll admit that it’s not always easy to find something to share with you all, because the work behind the scenes here is not often glamourous or obviously exciting at first glance. However, each week I also surprise myself with just how much we get through in five days, and looking back at these posts is a great way to realise just how much has happened this year. Of course, there were many highlights including the Branch Orientation Day in January, hosting the APFHRM in April, the NZ HR Summits and Members’ Forum in May and June, the HRINZ Membership Engagement Survey in July and of course the NZ HR Conference and Expo at the fabulous Viaduct Events Centre in September. There were also some exciting developments and announcements such as...

From our desks to your screen. Here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. The countdown is on! Not to the holidays, as you might expect, but to the NZ HR Awards! It’s only 13 sleeps until the man in red starts on his merry way, but more importantly it’s just 104 until we announce the deserving winners at the Awards Presentation Dinner. We are absolutely delighted to have received such a large number of entries this year and we are looking forward to hearing all about the fantastic initiatives that individuals and organisations across the country have been working on. The Supportive CEO Award, in association with Strategic Pay, looks as though it will be one of our most fiercely fought categories this time around, and this is really great because it reflects that many leaders are now recognising the value of excellent people practices, and the importance of a healthy and happy workplace. Even if you haven’t put in an entry this year, don’t forget that you can still join us at the Presentation Dinner in March. It promises to be an evening of glitz, glamour and inspiration, as we reveal who takes out the top prizes. Tickets are available for purchase now on the Awards website. Numbers are limited so get in early to secure your spot. Adding a touch of glamour to the working lives of the HRINZ Office Team this week was our festive high tea at the Amora in Wellington. We each paid our $25 and received a...

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…well around the HRINZ Office it is anyway! You might think that Santa’s elves have been hard at work, when it was in fact Office Administrator, Beth, who brought the festive season cheer to our workplace. Tinsel, tea light candles (electric of course for safety reasons) and trees are dotted about the place, and even Gordon is getting into the spirit of things. Can you spot him in the photo below making a special guest appearance as a Xmas bauble? It’s hard to believe that there are only 12 working days left for us in the office, especially when it seems as though there’s more to do than ever! First off I’d like to say thank you to all those members who have been in touch recently to express their pleasure at the recent signing of the tripartite agreement with AHRI and HRPA. It has now been announced in all three countries and has been very well received by each. You may have seen it featured in several HR news publications this week. Several of our wonderful milestone members have also written to us over the past few days expressing their gratitude upon receiving their ‘thank you’ gift. Have a look in the latest issue of HumanResources (which should be arriving in your letterbox today) to find out the names of the special members who are celebrating 20...

From our desks to your screen. Here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. It seems that poor people practices have been all over the news this week with stories of employee wages being docked at petrol stations, supermarkets behaving badly and restaurant owners facing fines. I for one have been shocked by some of these revelations, and it seems as though these organisations could do with some advice from an experienced HR practitioner. HRINZ regularly receives calls from people who feel they are in an exploitative employment situation, and hearing of such terrible experiences makes all of us here in the office pleased to work for an organisation that represents ethical and professional practitioners who abide by our code of conduct. However, rather than just focusing on the bad, we want to celebrate the great, and that is what the NZ HR Awards are all about. Entries opened earlier this week and a number of members and non-members have already applied in a range of different categories. We’re really looking forward to hearing about the fantastic work that is taking place, and to celebrating the successes of the profession with you all. If you’re thinking about entering, you have until Monday, 8 December at 5.00pm to get your application in. That’s not far away, so don’t delay and get onto it today! Another highlight of the week was the announcement of the tripartite agreement between HRINZ, AHRI and HRPA in Canada. As mentioned in the...

From our desks to your screen. Here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. As summer holidays draw ever nearer (it’s 4.5 weeks until Christmas for those who are wondering) the last major event on the HRINZ calendar has been ticked off and it’s time we started thinking about what to buy for the office secret Santa. The $10 price limit doesn’t provide a lot of scope, however, as we’re always told, it’s the thought that counts! Those who attended the HRINZ Research Forum in Wellington yesterday were delivered an early Christmas present, in the form of a truly fantastic event. It was a shame not to see a few more people there to take advantage of this great learning and networking opportunity. After all it’s not often that academics and practitioners get together to discuss the latest research and talk about the kind of studies that would be useful for the future. The day included four presentations of research papers, each one followed up by a HR practitioner discussing the practical application of the paper and then questions and answers with the audience. There were also three panel discussions focusing on hot issues in HR/workplace research, influencing research, and how to prepare the HR practitioner of the future. Brilliant debate and discussion occurred on all topics, and in many cases the panel chairs had to reluctantly take final questions/comments and wrap up the session quickly to ensure that the day stayed on schedule. There was a brilliant atmosphere...

From our desks to your screen. Here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. The end of the year is always a good time to take a moment to look back on what we’ve achieved over the past twelve months, and to visualise our goals for the coming year. This natural period for reflection also just happens to coincide with the launch of the NZ HR Awards…perhaps it’s your time to shine? That trophy sure would look great on your desk! Jokes aside, if you or your team have experienced great success with a unique initiative, we want to hear about it. If you’ve gone above and beyond to deliver remarkable results for the business, then share it with us all! Don’t be a shy Kiwi! We know that HR practitioner and people managers across the country are out there doing outstanding work, we think that you should be proud of that, and we think that it’s definitely worth celebrating. As mentioned in our email to you yesterday, entries for the Awards will be opening soon, so please take this time to consider putting yourself, or your team, forward. There’s really nothing to lose. Speaking of putting yourself forward, it’s great to see that so many members have indicated an interest in is joining their local Branch Committee. We’ve received an excellent number of expressions of interest thus far, and there’re still a couple of weeks to go, so if you’re keen, be sure to get in touch with us before...

From our desks to your screen. Here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. We’re back to the usual Weekly Wrap-up this week after Chris took over the reins last Friday. I hope you enjoyed his recap of the HR World Congress. If you haven’t seen it yet, then you can check it out here. Now that we’re into November, things are winding up a little bit event-wise here at HRINZ, and you may think that this means the work is slowing down. On the contrary, we’re really revving up for next year and it seems to be busier than ever. I’m so used to discussing 2015 that sometimes I have to remind myself what year we are really in! We’ve got a handful of webinars and PD courses left for the remainder of the year including Developments in Restructuring and Redundancies on 12 November, Managing Trauma, Loss and Grief in the Workplace on 19 November, and Many Cultures, One Workplace on 26 November. There’s also one final Advanced Employment Law taking place in Wellington on 13 November. Of course you can’t forget the Research Forum either, which is coming up on 20 November. If, like us, you’re looking forward to 2015 and want to start planning your training and development, you’ll be pleased to know that the PD programme is almost finalised and you’ll be receiving the latest offering from HRINZ, and our partners, in January. Karan, Jen and Brenda are working hard to ensure that there’s something in...

Today, in the place of the HRINZ Weekly Wrap-up, I bring you a recap from HRINZ CE, Chris, about his time in Chile attending the World HR Congress. I hope you enjoy this treat on All Hallows’ Eve! See you back here next week. It was a real privilege to attend, on behalf of HRINZ, the 15th World Congress of Human Resources in Santiago, Chile between October 15th and 17th 2014. There were three areas which stand out for me as highlights. Firstly, with the backing of the WFPMA (World Federation of Personnel Management Associations) and the South American focussed Inter-American Federation for Human Talent Management (FIDAGH) the in country Chilean association of CERH (“The Human Resources Executive Board”) organised a creditable conference bearing in mind they are really only seven years old and have around 200 members in a country of 17 million people. The conference had six really memorable speakers for me:- Jean Michel Caye Jean Michel works for the Boston Consulting Group as the Director General. He presented some great data on global HR and when the slides and data are publically available we’ll make sure HRINZ members are alerted and get a link to the slide share. Dr.Linda Gratton We were fortunate to witness the WFPMA granting the 2014 version of its very prestigious WFPMA Award ‘Georges Petitpas’ to Dr. Lynda Gratton, Ph.D., professor of Management Practice, Advanced Institute of Management Research, London Business School, for her excellent contribution as a global HR leader, assisting in the...

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. It always seems to be the way. The weather packs in just in time for the long weekend! I’m not sure what the forecast is like for your part of the country, but it seems that most of us will be hanging onto those coats and scarfs for a little while longer rather than searching for the sunscreen and shades. Nevertheless, no matter what weather comes our way we should all take a moment to remember why we recognise Labour Day and be thankful for those who went before and fought the fight for the eight-hour working day. However, with many of us working longer hours than ever, perhaps this weekend is a good time to stop, turn off those emails and take a look at your own life balance? I’m sure we could all do with some time out. I’ll be keeping the wrap-up to a minimum this week as I’m sure those of you who didn’t take today off will be looking to sneak out the door soon and get the weekend started a little early! For us, this week has all been about planning for 2015 really. Conference, Awards, budgets, new technology, it’s been keeping us all busy! I’m pleased to say the Awards are beginning to take shape and I’ve been working alongside Karan, Jen and Brenda this week to sort some details and get started on the website, submission forms, application forms…oh my!

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. So here we are once again on Friday afternoon, and I find myself looking back on the week just past, wondering what I can share with you all in the Weekly Wrap-up. I have to admit, there wasn’t anything overly exciting that happened in the office this week, just a lot of old-fashioned hard work. Preparation for the Awards, planning for the 2015 PD programme, reviewing of technology projects, it’s all good stuff, there’s just not anything that interesting that I can tell you all about yet. Something that is interesting however, is the WFPMA World HR Congress which is taking place in Santiago, Chile this week.T he World HR Congress takes place every two years (the last one was in Melbourne), and in 2014 there are over 1500 delegates attending from 53 countries spread across 5 continents. You can check out the website for the event, and the official Twitter feed, though it may be helpful if you can understand Spanish for that one! Chris and National President, Rachel Walker, have been over in Chile representing NZ at this event and at the Heads of Nations meeting so instead of writing a blog this week, I thought I’d share some of the Twitter updates that they have posted from the Congress over the past few days. We truly are globally connected! I’m sure that on his return, Chris will provide a...

From our desks to your screen, here is the week that was for the HRINZ Office Team. Does anyone else feel like the weeks are just speeding by right now? It seems only yesterday that we had the branch presidents and committee members in the office for Orientation Day, and yet we’re already about to launch into branch committee elections for 2015. Joining your local branch committee is a great move if you are looking to give something back to the HR community and want to have more of a say about the kinds of events you’d like to see in your area. There are a range of roles available from treasurer to communications co-ordinator to tertiary liaison, so why not take a rest from your day job and give something else a go? It’s also an excellent way to make some very valuable connections and work alongside others who share your passion for HR. The election process is currently being reviewed by the Branch President Advisory Group (BPAG) and the Membership Team here in Wellington, but stay posted for further information on the elections. We would really love for you to join us! It was great to see that we had another 17 new members sign up this week. We look forward to getting to know you all and who knows, perhaps there is a future branch president or two among you! The Membership Team would also like to thank all those who submitted feedback regarding the proposed changes to the Constitution....
