Here at Actus, we are delighted to announce a strategic partnership with HRi (HR independents). HR independents is a brand new membership body, aimed at independently minded HR professionals as well as those who are in an ‘HR department of one’. We decided to work in partnership with HRi, as part of our ethos is to help build a better workplace for people as we share similar values and ethos with the founders. This new body provides practical support and resources for independent HR professionals and offers a voice on behalf of the many thousands of workers not registered with the CIPD.
It can be lonely setting up on your own and difficult to access the right resources and support to build a successful HR business as an independent HR professional. HRi offers resources, tools and personal support from their helpdesk giving people the confidence and knowledge to succeed. Advice available on forums is helpful and plentiful, but we must remember that it is subjective advice. The HRi helpdesk provides a clearing house for information, and always remains impartial and objective.
Part of the way in which we are collaborating with HRi is by providing members with free access to the Continuing Professional Development functionality within Actus system, allowing them to record and track professional development. We are also offering preferential rates for HRi members to access Actus Performance and Talent Management Software. This helps them to help their clients to embed better people management processes, in turn increasing productivity, engagement and strategic alignment. Various Actus products are available via the popular HRi shop and, of course many members also find our free value-add services which include the weekly HR Uprising Podcast and monthly topical webinars very helpful.
To find out more about the Actus/HRi collaboration and how they can help provide you with the support you need as an HR independent, please get in touch here. Why not listen to the HR Uprising Podcast below, where our CEO and host, Lucinda Carney, talks to two of the founders, Ruth Cornish and Katy McMinn.
