Dear Colleagues:

It is my pleasure as WFPMA Secretary General/Treasurer to share the latest issue of WorldLink, this time focusing on people management in Asia Pacific.

— Get ready for the WFPMA World Congress in June 2018 in Chicago, Illinois. This issue of WorldLink highlights the keynote speakers and provides plenty of links for registration, marketing and more.

— Lyn Goodear, chief executive of the Australian HR Institute, examines what happens when employees take sexual harassment allegations to HR.

— Md. Musharrof Hossain provides an update from Bangladesh, including the creation of the Federation of Bangladesh Human Resource Organizations, a wider umbrella organization.

— There is an update on the 2017 APFHRM board meeting and the “Asia Pacific HR Best Practices Forum.”

The newsletter includes other important HR reports and reflections, as well as brief news updates on various HR-related happenings in Asia-Pacific countries. We trust that you will find this issue of WorldLink, which is available on the WFPMA website (, timely and informative. Please forward it to the members in your association and post it on your association’s website. 

The next issue of WorldLink, publishing in July, will feature news from Central and South America. If you have story ideas for your regional issue or events you would like to add to the Calendar, please contact WorldLink Editor Melanie Padgett Powers at
