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.

— Our front page editorial this month was written by Chris Till, president of the Asia Pacific Federation of HRM and chief executive of the Human Resources Institute of New Zealand. Chris shares an important lesson about confidentiality, as illustrated on a recent flight he took.

— An article by Md. Musharrof Hossain, president of the Bangladesh Society for Human Resources Management, talks about how HR professionals can create a value proposition for their business.

— We learn from Lyn Goodear, CEO OF the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI), why and how AHRI now requires all practicing professional members to undertake a rigorous HR certification credential.

— We hear how the Hong Kong Institute of Human Resource Management has developed the Specification of Competency Standards for the Human Resource Management Sector.

And, as always, you will read brief news updates on various HR-related happenings in several countries in the Asia Pacific region. We trust that you will find this issue of WorldLink, which is available on the WFPMA web site (, timely and informative. Please forward it to the members in your association and post it on your association’s web site. 

The next issue of WorldLink, publishing in July 2017, will feature the Interamerican

Federation of People Management Associations and HR news from Latin 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

With warm regards, 

Leyla Nascimento

WFPMA Secretary General/Treasurer
