OMGosh! It is hard to believe it is February 2014 already! It seems like just a few days ago that it was December and we were talking about our New Year’s resolutions. I Googled New Year’s resolutions and here are some of the statistics I found:
· 45% of Americans usually make New Year’s Resolutions
· 47% are self improvement or education related resolutions
· 75% maintained their resolution through the first week of the new year
· 36% gave up after one month on their resolution.
So what were your New Year’s resolutions? Have you ever thought about getting more active with the Wichita SHRM Chapter or a committee? Are you thinking of increasing your HR knowledge or professional education this year? Are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer in a way that could impact the community?
Wichita SHRM is a great place help you start achieving your professional resolutions. We are the best place to meet seasoned and emerging HR leaders, find educational opportunities, share best practices with fellow practitioners and engage in impactful and value added volunteer opportunities. Our 2014 programs are timely, valuable and relevant to the HR professional and each one provides the opportunity to earn general or strategic HRCI credits.
So if you were one of the 36% who had already given up on your resolution for 2014, it’s only February. Make the resolution again! Start today!!! On March 1st make your resolution again. On April 1st make your resolution again……
Should you have questions about our website, or the Chapter, or committee opportunities, please feel free to contact me or refer to our list of board members and reach out to the director overseeing the area you have a question about.
I personally invite you to get started by joining if you are new to SHRM or get involved if you are a current member.
