Personnel/ HR Associations: What you need to know

Societal and economic factors are constantly changing the workforce and employment practices. One of the best ways for human resources practitioners to keep up-to-date is by joining a professional human resources association. Membership frequently offers the opportunity to attend conferences, exchange information about personnel issues in the workplace, keep current with developments in the field, access audio and Web-based seminars and other specialized information, and most important, develop a network of support. Participation in professional associations allows HR practitioners to increase their value to their organizations by expanding their knowledge in their field of expertise, as well as other issues critical to the function of their companies.
