CPHR strengthens international ties

Canada’s most prominent HR organization has further strengthened its international ties this week after it was revealed the CPHR has partnered with two additional HR institutes.

The Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Canada (CPHR) confirmed yesterday that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Singapore Human Resources Institute (SHRI) to share information and opportunities that advance the HR profession globally.

However, CPHR Canada CEO Anthony Ariganello also announced the organization has reached the same agreement with the Bangladesh Society for Human Resources Management (BSHRM).

B.C.-based Ariganello called the partnerships “exceptional alignments” and said such coalitions were crucial in today’s fast-changing economic environment.

“Globalization is having tremendous impacts on jobs, workplaces and economies all over the world,” he stressed. “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.”

Shannon Railton, chair of CPHR Canada, said the memorandums define the nature of the partnerships as well as the areas in which the organizations will inter-relate.

“We will be looking for opportunities to partner on international agenda items, to share resources and compare industry trends,” she said.

    Should Ontario HR Professionals be worried? Should we be looking into obtaining this designation too? What hold does HRPA Ontario have over Ontario Professionals?

    It's long past time for the HRPA and CPHR Canada to get to the table and end this silly conflict and get aligned.
