Aurora, ON, November 02, 2010 – HR.com, the largest social community dedicated to human resource professionals, with 194,000 members, is proud to announce their Advisory Board for the Institute for Human Resources – Contract Workforce and Talent Exchange Certification Program that launches December 1, 2010 in San Francisco.

The ultimate goal of the Contract Workforce and Talent Exchange program is to provide certification and accreditation to industry professionals who are interested in advancing their career, obtaining deep domain expertise, valuable hands-on experience and knowledge that will enable them to make measurable improvements in their workplaces.

IHR’s certification and accreditation process is developed through an independent Advisory Board composed of industry experts with access to the latest technology, best practices and thought leaders in their respective spaces.

“With access to global workforce talent exchanges such as Elance and Arise, who offer just-in-time labor, tools for managing the virtual worker and labor market, innovative companies are using these resources to drive global business expansion,” says James P. Ware, Executive Producer, Work Design Collaborative, co-founder Future of Work Program and Chair of the Institute.

The Advisory Board is comprised of the following professionals:

Chairperson: James P Ware, Executive Producer, Work Design Collaborative
Facilitator: Helen McLafferty Hunt, HR.com
Industry Representatives:

The Advisory Board is responsible for guiding the design of the curriculum, and ensuring that the material is impactful and relevant in today’s business conditions.

Chad Lane, President, Allegis Group Services, says, “With service providers, consultants and contractor/temporary workers making up an increasing percentage of the traditional labor spend within an organization, it is essential that HR executives understand how to manage, procure, motivate and retain this talent within their organization. This certificate program is the first of its kind that focuses on people who manage North American or global labor forces.”

IHR is currently covering 18 key HR verticals ranging from Contract Workforce and Talent Exchanges, Recruitment Process Outsourcing, Quality of Hire, Integrated Talent Management to Employee Wellness. Each program provides a full list of education, conferences, and accredited certification courses for a 12-month period.

Education, training and certification credits will be available with “authorized partners” as well as with HR.com educational webcasts, live events and award-winning virtual events.
