May 20 is the fourth annual World Federation of People Management Associations (WFPMA) International Human Resources Day. The observance honors all the hardworking HR professionals worldwide who make HR a critical function across organizations and industries.
“Many thanks to my colleagues whose leadership and vision brought International HR Day to life in 2019. Little did we know what challenges awaited the world over the next few years. Through it all, HR delivered with resilience, resourcefulness and dedication,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. (Taylor is also the WFPMA delegate for the U.S. and the immediate past president of the North American Human Resource Management Association.)
