As we prepare to enjoy the summer with our family and friends, I would like to take a minute to thank all the people who attend our programs and the organizations who sponsor them. Congratulations to those who have earned their certificates.
This spring, we introduced our HR Metrics and Analytics program, which teaches you how to transform HR data into business insight. This program has filled a need in our community, and has also been very popular as a custom offering. We recently completed a Professional Development Awareness Survey, which revealed insights about what types of training people prefer, the most important factors for making a training decision, and which resources people rely on.
I am proud of the work we are doing at Queen’s IRC and I encourage you to take a few minutes to review the excellent papers and articles we have released this spring.
