For the Chief HR Officer
CHRO Think Tank Sessions:  Join an exclusive group of the world’s top HR thinkers and practitioners in a strategic session designed to discuss key drivers, dilemmas and pitfalls along the path to ensure HR adds value and drives business results. 

Best Practice Sharing Calls:  Join 4-5 Institute members on a teleconference to share ideas, experiences, and best practices around a critical topic. (See the Calendar of Events for 2010 topics). We write white papers after each call to summarize the best practices shared and frame them such that you can take action immediately.

For Senior HR Executives
Executive Think Tank Sessions:  Senior HR Executives gather four times a year from around the world to leverage our research, our world-class network, and actionable best practices in our unique Think Tank process as we develop new ideas and approaches to solving HR’s most demanding and current challenges. 2009 Think Tank session topics include: Innovations in Leadership, Designing Organizations for Volatile Markets, Linking HR to Customers, and Making Strategy Happen. (Note: Topics may change if the business environment calls for a more pressing and relevant need.)

For HR Professionals
RBL Institute Library: Available to everyone in your organization, the RBL Institute online library is a secure website where HR professionals at all levels can access premier HR oriented educational content, including actionable development videos, white papers, articles on hot HR issues, and discussion forums to connect with peers around the globe.

For the HR Organization
Research: You will be the first to see our research results, articles and books on pressing HR and Leadership issues. Get pre-published authors’ proofs of the latest and greatest in HR and Leadership.  Ignore the grammar and leverage the content!

Publishing: In our HR Leadership Project, we are collaborating with Institute members to write handbooks on critical HR and Leadership topics.  Each book will codify best practices and highlight our member’s world-class HR organizations.  We expect to highlight the work of four Institute members in each book.

Discounts: While all the benefits above are included in our annual membership fee, RBL Institute members also receive discounts to additional executive education programs, including our flagship HR Learning Partnership.  Please contact us for additional details.
