Canada and Singapore align to advance the HR Profession Worldwide
VANCOUVER – February 22, 2017 – The Singapore Human Resources Institute (SHRI) and The Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Canada (CPHR) have each signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to share information and opportunities that advance the HR Profession globally.
“These partnerships are exceptional alignments for CPHR Canada,” says Anthony Ariganello, CPHR, CEO, CPHR Canada. “Globalization is having tremendous impacts on jobs, workplaces and economies all over the world. It’s more important than ever that the human resource profession creates these international alliances, to identify trends and challenges and position our members to better serve employers and employees in these transitions.”
The MoUs define the nature of the partnerships and the areas in which the organizations will inter-relate. “Within both organizations, we will be looking for opportunities to partner on international agenda items, to share resources and compare industry trends,” adds Shannon Railton Chair of CPHR Canada.
