APEX Global, the learning solutions arm of ECC International has recently partnered with SHRM (Society of Human Resource Management) from USA to bring professional development solutions for HR practitioners in the Philippines. Together with SHRM, APEX Global jointly run the 1st Knowledge Forum focused on whats in store for global corporations – both big and small and how HR will play a crucial role in shaping this future.
This forum was held at the Mandarin Oriental, in Makati City this 10th April 2014, and was well attended by senior HR executives from banking, financial services, manufacturing, Outsourcing / BPO, government agencies and IT companies. The group had several meaningful exchanges and a lively discussion in the field they get to oversee – HR & Learning.
Some of the key highlights / strategies for the future shared from the presentation included
1. Grow from Within – Need for organisations to focus internally for future leaders rather than outside
2. Business Partner Approach – Shifting towards the setup of ‘HR business partner’ model rather than viewing HR as a support department
3. (Re)Building Employer Brand – Creating new strategies to retain performers and reduce recruitment related costs
Keeping the extensive interest among the participants, SHRM’s professional certification programs will be launched in the Philippines starting May 2014.
HRMP (HR Management Professional) – May 26-28 2014
