HR Saskatchewan - Spring/Summer 2016 - (Page 7)

FROM THE EDITOR Thanks Team... and Up and Comers Clubs I WANT TO OPEN this edition of the HR Saskatchewan Magazine with a huge shout out to the members of the Communications Committee who bring this magazine to life twice a year and who have been working hard to increase our social media presence. Our veteran committee members, Carla Fox and Tenniel Ingenthron, have been contributing for over a year now, and we had three new members join us last fall - Ashley Cates, Katherine Kowal and Mark Hillmer. Of course, the brains behind it all is SAHRP's very own Kit Mazurak, who does an amazing job of keeping all of us on track and pulling the magazine together every time! There is a great line up of articles for you in the spring edition, and many more articles that we will be featuring on the SAHRP blog and social media in the weeks to come. If you haven't already heard about the New HR Professional Awards Program, the call for speakers for the SAHRP Annual Conference, or heard about upcoming events in your community, go find out more on one of our social media sites (see list at the left). By Kelly Tunison, CHRP SAHRP Other exciting HR news is that some students at the University of Regina's Paul J. Hill School of Business Communications Chair have created a new HR Business Club - similar to what the University of Saskatchewan has had for some time now! Pay attention to these up and comers, they are the future of our profession. Before you get to the actual magazine (and realize there is an article written Follow your association: by the keynote speaker for the 2016 SAHRP Annual Conference!), I want to send out one final thank you to all of our SAHRP members who completed the survey LinkedIn: Saskatchewan Association of about the magazine. Your comments will be incorporated into future editions Human Resource Professionals wherever possible! Facebook: #HRSKMagazine Twitter: Blog: LETTER TO THE EDITOR RE: 3 Critical Connections to Effectively Communicate Change (Fall/Winter 2015, p. 10) I have always been fascinated by change. Change impacts different facets of life and business environments that organizations have to deal with to stay true to their mission statements. Reviewing Chris Edgelow's write-up was a delightful and educative experience. The article provides deep insight into how inadequate communication still exists, in spite of determined efforts to improve communication within organizations. Change efforts that are not well communicated through appropriate channels, fails to deliver the desired results. Well-written and informative commentary on communicating information. In my opinion, communication is essential to change management and organizations should look more seriously into this message to ensure success in their change strategies.
