Looking back at 2014

People First

As we mark the final hours of 2014, we think back upon the year and wonder what headlines were of most interest to HR professionals.

For HR practitioners, the decision in Ontario by the Human Resource Professionals Association (HRPA) to withdraw from the Canadian Council of Human Resource Association (CCHRA) was a big story.  It can’t be said that this came as much of a surprise, as the HRPA gave ample notice as to their intentions well before the headlines broke.  The biggest item on the HRPA’s agenda was revamping the CHRP designation, which has remained almost unchanged since its introduction in 1990.  They rolled out a new framework in the fall, creating three designations where once there was only one.
