I was the first speaker at a Central London Branch development day last Friday – the whole event was around developing the ‘behaviours’ elements of the HR Profession Map. It was a very buzzy atmosphere – the Friday timing perhaps contributed to the slight feeling of being let out from school!
It was a great opportunity to talk about the HRPM, why it is how it is, and how it feeds into membership, qualifications and development. And how it needs to be dynamic and update as the profession itself moves forward. This ‘refresh’ is something we’re working on at the moment – to ensure we can build in the insights from Next Gen HR and elsewhere, and ensure it really is the global standard for HR. The trick, of course, is to do this and maintain the integrity of our new qualifications!

The building itself was fascinating – held in Friends House, HQ of the Quakers. It’s a somewhat labyrinthine building with some wonderful stylised features not immediately obvious from its facade - and must be a maintenance nightmare. I used to know a now-retired Recording Clerk of the Quakers (CEO to you and me). Her husband had been one of the early script writers for Doctor Who, and the hidden depths of Friends House certainly reminded me of the spacial contradictions of the Tardis!
The day went somewhat downhill after that - too much rain, too small an umbrella, too long in traffic jams.....
A trackback is a method for Web authors to request notification when somebody links to one of their documents. This enables authors to keep track of who is linking, and so referring, to their articles. Some weblog software programs, such as Wordpress, Drupal and Movable Type, support automatic pingbacks where all the links in a published article can be pinged when the article is published. The term is used colloquially for any kind of linkback.
