How IHRIM is re-envisioning its role as the education provider to the HRIT community


Refocusing IHRIM for 2019…and Beyond In the current edition of the Workforce Solutions Review, my colleagues and I at IHRIM – the International HR Association for Information Management – crafted an article on how IHRIM is re-envisioning our role as education provider to the HRIT community in light of dual pressures – a rapidly-changing marketing for HR technology and a bumper crop of new HRIT leaders. You can find the full article in the Review [insert link], but here’s a summary of the critical points. Our leadership team firmly believes that IHRIM as a membership organization, and an advocate for the HRIT profession, will be strengthened if we can create an active, collaborative, supportive, and vocal group of members who see value in the education and networking that IHRIM was founded to deliver. To be successful in serving our core (HRIT) and adjacent (HR, managers, employees, vendors & consultants) members IHRIM must leverage its native strengths (unique position at the center of HR technology education, an industry-leading certification program, and long-standing expertise in the HRIT field). Here are three examples of our role in 2019…and beyond: Play the Leading Role in Advocating for the HRIT Profession IHRIM’s research shows that recent graduates joining the HRIT field care more about job opportunities and training, while experienced leaders rely on IHRIM for information on new technologies and innovative practices in HRIT management. IHRIM will become a staunch advocate for the HRIT profession – using our resources to elevate the practice, connecting HRIT to peers across the organization, and communicating the value of strong leadership in HR technology management. Create an Ecosystem of HR Technology Education of Which IHRIM is the Hub Our goal is to set a vision for the HR Technologist of the future, cutting through the “marketing hype” to set the standards for the necessary education, learning, skills, and experiences required to achieve that vision. IHRIM’s ecosystem should be a central repository of curated educational material and experiential learning that addresses the multi-faceted needs of our members. However, critical to the success of any association is distribution – how IHRIM makes its proprietary content available to a “just-in time” education consumer. Build an Unparalleled Community of Valuable, Recurring Social Connections: Members typically join education associations for job & networking opportunities; IHRIM understands this and is prioritizing opportunities for professional and social collaboration that extend beyond ad-hoc interactions at events or LinkedIn connections. A Call to Action In summary, the next 12-18 months will be critical as IHRIM reassesses how it delivers high-quality education to an increasingly diverse membership base. The future is bright, but we need the support of readers like you to translate our vision into reality. There are many opportunities to volunteer with IHRIM, ranging from recurring participation in our education, membership or community programs to donating just a couple of hours to support a webinar or marketing activity. Please go to to learn more about volunteer roles or contact me directly [insert email address]. You can read the full article by subscribing to the Workforce Solutions Review. We also have some exciting news to share about the relationship between IHRIM and MapHR – stay tuned for that later this month! Welcome to 2019 and I hope that you have a wonderful year.

The Art of Selecting Candidate Pre-Hire Assessments

Speaker: Melissa Dobbins, Founder & CEO, Career.Place

At the core of successful hiring practices is the fair and accurate evaluation of skills, abilities, knowledge and other criteria for a job. One powerful method to do this is through psychometric assessments. The right assessments used in the right way provide objective evaluation of criteria that are far more accurate than interviews alone. Unfortunately, choosing the wrong assessments or using assessments in the wrong way can lead to bad choices, biases, and even discriminatory practices that violate compliance standards.
