HRPBC 2017 Presidential Message

Dear HRPBC Members:

Happy New Year and welcome to 2017.   As we begin our 51st year, I am both humbled and excited to serve as President of this remarkable association. It is my vision that HRPBC (Human Resource Association of Palm Beach County) will be your trusted resource for advancing workplace strategy, organizational excellence, and HR leadership.  The leadership team is committed to the members of this association as well as our local community. Our association will challenge members to be better business leaders by providing the most relevant and thought-provoking programs facing our workplace today. Throughout the year we will partner with and help support others, specifically our Veterans and those with disabilities.

Human Resources continues to lead the way in our business community.  It is my commitment to continue advancing the role of HR professionals in Palm Beach County and throughout South Florida.  HR is the bridge that allows business leaders to connect with their employees on a deeper level. A person’s job is more than just a way to earn a paycheck.  In many cases, a career represents someone’s identity. What an individual does and how he or she does it says something about the person he or she wishes to be.  HR is the conduit in which the organization shows its appreciation not only for the job the individual does but also the advancement the individual seeks. This is why I love Human Resources.  With that said, “change” is the new norm in our industry today.  Keeping up with and staying ahead of the battle for talent, technological advances, workplace diversity, medical leave and benefits, generational differences, remote workplaces, terrorism, globalization…just to list a few, are the challenges that continue to change the manner in which we manage and perform our jobs.  From what I’ve witnessed, no other group is better prepared to lead this evolution and define the future than the nearly 400 members of HRPBC!

In closing, it is my hope that you will join us each month as we meet to discuss how we can continue to drive change, support each other, and influence the lives of those in our organizations.  Please know that HRPBC events are a safe place to ask questions, find resources, network, and meet new friends and colleagues.  There is much to look forward to in the New Year. Our leadership team is working hard to put together amazing events, most notably our Annual Conference in May that will showcase dynamic keynote speakers.   You don’t want to miss what HRPBC has planned for 2017! Come and be a part of it.    

I wish you the best this year and hope to connect with you in the near future.  Thank you again for the opportunity to serve as your 2017-2018 HRPBC President.


John Haymore, MBA, PHR, SHRM-CP, LSSYB
