Number 44 | February 2017 | All Issues | www.cyhrma.org
We present to you the 44th issue of our magazine, full of interesting articles and interviews, ideas and practices shared by you as well as information on the different activities of our Association. A big thank you to everyone contributing to this and all back issues of the magazine, by sharing their views and experiences or by writing and editing the content.
Starting a new year brings hope, optimism, enthusiasm, motivation and energy. Hope this year proves better for our economy and our businesses. We all realise that things continue to be tough and we know very well how the leadership and the people in our organisations are dealing with the day to day business challenges.The economic, social and political environment in Cyprus and most importantly globally is not getting better, actually with such dramatic events impacting the world, we all acknowledge that the environment is becoming more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (referred to as VUCA).
So, how are we dealing with all these challenges? What new challenges are we going to face? How can we contribute to the success of our organisation, its people and the broader business environment we are operating? Our aim is to provide you with insights, ideas and views which will help you as a professional as well as a person. Sharing experiences, presenting best practices and listening to diverse views can only bring positive benefits to all of us.
One thing is for sure. The last few years made us more resilient, innovative and even daring. Maybe this is what we need to keep as a legacy, along with the realisation that things will continuously change.
An important highlight on this issue are the results of our Annual Members Satisfaction Survey, which outline your feedback and opinions on what you value most as a member of the Association and what you would like to see more. This information is important for the success of our Association and we thank all of you for your contribution.
In this issue we present to you interesting interviews with people from different fields, Mr. Kypros Kyprianou, Director of the Public Administration and Personnel Department of Civil Service and Yiota Tsiokri, HR Officer of LGS Handling.
We also continue to run our now established columns with practical tips and views on how to deal with challenging situations we are facing as HR professionals. This time we are looking into: - A dilemma of an HR Manager when the organisation is faced with redundancies
- Practical tips from organisations recognised as ‘Equal Opportunities Employer’
- HR Managers sharing their views about the environment and our profession in 100 words
In addition, we also outline other activities of our Association including our Annual Party, the Business Breakfast event and other activities of our Committees.
We hope that you enjoy this issue and would like to assure you of our commitment to offer through this magazine a depository of know how and expertise valuable to all. We will also consider the feedback on the areas you are interested most and focus our content on such areas.
We look forward to receiving your ideas and contributions in order to continuously enrich our magazine.
