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).

Other exciting HR news is that some students at the University of Regina's Paul J. Hill School of Business
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

about the magazine. Your comments will be incorporated into future editions

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.
