The Community Delivers Valuable Experiences and Information All Year
As part of this group, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in high-level discussions, share best practices, exchange information, and network directly with peers. In-person roundtable sessions, conference calls, and webcasts provide up-to-the-minute insight, interactive discussion, networking, and sharing of best practices regarding current and emerging HR issues. There is no effort to influence one another’s actions or policies or to present a united front, but rather to challenge and advance the independent thinking of each of the individuals participating on behalf their organization.
Agendas, discussion topics, and surveys are all tailored to member’s current interests and needs, and provide timely information and analysis on developments in the HR world. For additional details, please download our brochure.
Benefits of Membership
Members have the opportunity to participate in three, one-day sessions per year. Agendas address members’ most pressing HR issues and include facilitated discussions, as well as presentations by members and guest speakers. At every session, members participate in a roundtable discussion format, giving them the opportunity to confidentially ask questions and share company experiences with peers.
Regularly Scheduled Webcasts on Timely Topics, Hosted by Experts in the Field
Personal and Group Debrief Conference Calls
Nothing can take the place of the value of personal interaction, but telephone debriefs are an increasingly relied-upon venue for realizing value from the network when schedules cannot accommodate a meeting or webcast. Members who have participated in the calls have found them to be an excellent backup when conflicts are unavoidable.
The Annual Meeting of Senior HR Leaders
Once each year, we invite members of all of our Senior HR Networks to come together to enjoy a broader conference with CHRO’s from organizations of various sizes across industries and geographies.
Throughout the year, members have the opportunity to network and communicate with their peers. Members stay in touch via e-mail, telephone, and webcasts as our members-only Web site offers confidential access to other members’ contact information.
Ad Hoc and Formal Surveys
Participation in formal and ad-hoc surveys on strategic HR issues is another valuable means of gathering information. Members have utilized this service in preparation for meetings with board members, executive teams, or simply to gather comparative practice information in a host of areas. If members have an immediate need for specific information, we will poll the group “on demand” and share the results with participants. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s included in the membership fee.
HR Outlook and Sightlines E-newsletters
Focusing specifically on issues of interest to HR leaders, the HR Outlook e-newsletter is sent to members monthly. In addition, members receive ORC’s Sightlines e-newsletter monthly, reviewing trends and highlighting learning from ORC’s networks and knowledge base.
Who Should Join?
Experienced HR leaders who are responsible for supporting the strategic direction of their company, advising business leaders on HR matters, and making decisions that directly impact employees and the bottom line. Members have at least ten years of experience in a corporate or divisional HR leadership role, are considered to be “high potential” leaders in their organizations, and could move into the senior HR officer role in the future. Membership in the network is on an annual basis and includes all events and services. For more information, contact Mary Kate Parrish, or call +1 (212) 345-9848.
