Chicago, IL, October 03, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- HR People & Strategy (HRPS), the premier association for strategic human resources executives, and the Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global association for talent management, announced an alliance today, aimed at providing a wider, more comprehensive range of benefits for their respective members.
With this agreement, HCI provides unlimited access to their Executive Membership program to HRPS members. In return, HRPS provides HCI Executive Members free online access to its quarterly journal, People & Strategy, and a special discounted rate for HCI Community Members.
People & Strategy features content based on its five knowledge areas, all of which are extremely relevant for HCI members: HR Strategy & Planning, Leadership Development, Talent Management, Organizational Effectiveness, and Building a Strategic HR Function. Recent articles have been authored by leading strategists in HR, including Dave Ulrich, Ed Lawler, John Boudreau, Lynda Gratton, Marcus Buckingham, Tamara Erickson, Morgan McCall, Ed Schein, W. Warner Burke, Karen Stephenson, Charles Handy, Ben Schneider and Peter Cappelli.
According to Michael Foster, HCI CEO, "We can’t think of a benefit that more strongly supports our mission to advance the strategic agenda for senior talent management executives. HRPS’ People & Strategy journal provides the type of relevant content that will help develop the strategic thinking of our membership and their connection to business success.”
This joint educational offering allows HCI to offer a formal and scholarly journal as a benefit that will help grow its members and the HR profession.
Dr. Richard Vosburgh, Chief Development Officer for HRPS and Partner of ArchPoint Consulting, stated “I’ve been a member of HRPS and HCI for many years and I’m thrilled that we could collaborate in this way. This is the kind of journal that includes scholarly research but is always cast in an ‘applied organizational’ kind of way; not overly academic. With Dr. Ed Gubman’s Executive Editor leadership, we’ve introduced special topic issues that are particularly good for team development lunch and learn kinds of discussions, for example on the Green Economy; the Drucker Centennial; the Organization-Customer Interface; and a special CEO Issue. We also introduced under Dr. Anna Tavis’s leadership a Point Counterpoint feature that inspires dialog and competing viewpoints on issues such as the HR Business Partner Model and a Supply Chain Model for Talent Management.”
HCI and HRPS are in the vanguard of the global transition to strategic human resources, and are committed to helping HR professionals transform their organizations and advance their careers.
