President's Message

 

 

Happy New Year and welcome to 2018 the Year of Building Community. I am the first past CHRA President (2004-2005) to return in this role and I am very privileged and honored to represent our profession and all of you! So, you might ask - why did I decide to return to the board of directors as President now? My career has taken me out of the local area for many years at a company headquartered in New York with our largest employee base in Houston, so I traveled monthly. My career has taken some twists and turns over the last year and I now have more time to devote to CHRA and my local community. It is time for me to give back to the HR profession that I have been a part of for over 25 years and it is time to be home where I have lived for the last 20 years.


You might also ask - why the focus on Building Community? In our world of tumultuous change, I believe it is more important than ever before to stand together and form a community one conversation at a time. As HR professionals we have a unique position to initiate collaboration and change and positively impact our workplaces. It is our time to build community within our profession and our organizations and ultimately in our world. I know that sounds like a tall order but as Audrey Hepburn said, “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I’m possible!'"

 

At CHRA, we are committed to providing you resources, professional development and networking opportunities to enhance your skills as an HR Professional. The CHRA board and I CANNOT REPRESENT YOU WITHOUT YOUR HELP. This is YOUR chapter; this is YOUR voice; we need your support in helping us serve you and advancing the HR profession.

 

With that in mind - what will you do this year to support our HR Community? According to Amelia Earhart “The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity”. Please contact us if you have any questions about the Call to Action items below or are interested in getting involved.

  1. Renew your CHRA membership today and take advantage of all the benefits CHRA has to offer
  2. Share your time and talents and join a CHRA committee
  3. Kick start your professional development by attending CHRA monthly meetings and the Spring and Fall conferences
  4. Mentor an HR student or fellow HR professional
  5. Support our partnership with Junior Achievement and volunteer at BizTown or participate in Her Path To Promise
  6. Sponsor an upcoming CHRA event
  7. Post a message on our social media sites

So, I ask you during this season of goal setting and resolutions - what are you willing to do to build community within your HR department, your organization and the community in which you work and live? I encourage you and invite you to join me as I Build Community within CHRA by focusing on the items below:

Be bold brave and brilliant
United we stand no silos
Inspire greatness
Laugh have fun
Dialogue and connect


Collaborate be curious and courageous
Outside of the box thinking
Member focused
Mentor others
Urge accountability and commitment
Nurture trust
Innovate and co-create solutions
Transparent open honest communication
Yes And vs. Yes But

Before I close, I want to thank and commend Laura Locke for serving as our President during 2017. During her tenure Laura provided tremendous support to me and all the board directors as well as you our members. Thank you, Laura, for your support and partnership in preparing me for this awesome opportunity!


I welcome your questions, feedback and dialogue so feel free to email me at lanneraggio@gmail.com. I leave you with a final quote from Mother Theresa “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples”. Thank you for who you are and all you do for our profession. I look forward to connecting with each of you during 2018.

 

Your President,


Lori Raggio, PHR, SHRM-CP

CHRA Legislative Update: Here We Go . . . The Maryland Sick Leave Battle Begins

By Donna M. Glover, Esq., Director, Legislative Affairs

 

Picking up from where we left off at the end of the 2017 legislative session . . . you may recall that Governor Hogan vetoed the Maryland Healthy Working Families Act because it was “deeply flawed.” The 2018 session opens on January 10, 2018, and a veto override vote is expected – how that will play out is anyone’s guess right now. The Governor plans to drop an “emergency bill” entitled “The Paid Leave Compromise Act,” which you may review by clicking here. You may also recall that the Governor ordered the Maryland DLLR to conduct a study on paid leave. You can find report on the DLLR’s study here.

In brief, under the Act, businesses with 25 or more employees will be required to offer paid leave to their employees by the year 2020. To give businesses time to prepare, the coverage would be phased in, starting in 2018 for businesses with 50 or more employees, in 2019 businesses with 40 or more employees, and extending to all applicable businesses in 2020. As noted on the Governor’s website, “in the spirit of true compromise and collaboration, the governor’s Paid Leave Compromise Act of 2018 was developed using HB1 as a starting point, striking out burdensome red tape and intrusive provisions to create a streamlined, simpler proposal.” But, the Governor’s version of the bill would allow employees to use accrued time for any reason (not just for sick and safe reasons) and employers would not be permitted to discipline employees for using accrued time, which may lead to employee abuse.

So, the plot thickens and we may see some fireworks in January 2018 when the session opens. Stay tuned!
