President's Report

While I was typing this message, the Indianapolis Colts squandered a lead and ultimately lost the game.  The Colts season is off to a rocky start, but NIHRA is off to a great start.  The Board has a great line-up of speakers and events for the balance of 2017.  The Johnny Appleseed Festival reminds me that fall weather, hay rides, and apple cider are right around the corner.  At the same time, I think of those affected by the recent hurricanes.  Apple cider is the last thing on their minds.

Does this have anything to do with Human Resources?  HR professionals deal with all kinds of human emotions - including disappointment, anticipation, and misery.  But while we take care of others and their needs at work, we also need to take care of ourselves outside of work.  So be sure to take some time to watch a football game with your buddies; go on a hayride with your family; and volunteer to help those less fortunate than yourself.

Thank you for all you do for others.  I hope you have a great fall 2017.

Brian Dumford, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, NIHRA President
