Members considering renewing
Former members considering rejoining
Non- members considering joining
19 out of 20 members are considering renewing NYHRPS memberships. Of former members who participated, slightly less than half are considering rejoining. Two out of three non-members would consider joining.
These results suggest reaching out to former and non-members to increase membership.
Favorable ratings range from a high of 95% favorable (communication re: upcoming events) to a low of 45% (opportunity to participate in thought leadership discussions). Both “opportunity” items have high proportions of neutral results, possibly suggesting a need for more information about opportunities for involvement.
Seven out of 10 items were ranked favorably by at least four out of five members. Profile of people in the network came close to that mark at 79%. Two items were rated favorably by fewer than three out of five members – opportunity to make valuable professional connections (57% fav) and opportunity to participate in thought leadership discussions. (45% fav).
Highest ratings (90% fav or higher) relate to administrative issues (communications regarding events and ease of registering).
High ratings (80-89% fav): Organizational leadership, relevance of topics, value of membership, opportunities for involvement, quality of speakers.
Moderate ratings (70-80% fav): Types of people in the NYHRPS network.
Lowest ratings (below 79% fav): Opportunity to make valuable connections, opportunity to participate in thought leadership discussions.
Former members’ ratings are lower than those of current members, except for quality of speakers at events (current members 81%, former members 83%) and opportunity to participate in thought leadership discussions (current members 45% favorable, former members 55%).
Not surprisingly, the biggest gap between current and former members is the value of NYHRPS membership.
Current and former members agree on the ease of registering, communications regarding upcoming events, and quality of speakers.
Which three of these have the most influence over your decision to start or continue NYHRPS membership?
Quality of presenters, profile of people in the network, and relevance of topics at NYHRPS events heavily influence at least half of members to join or renew. Quality of presenters is crucial, according to three out of four.
How likely is it that you would recommend NYHRPS to a friend or colleague?
85% of respondents are likely to recommend NYHRPS to friends and colleagues, and half are highly likely. A total of 15% are unlikely.
How frequently do you use…?
17 out of 20 respondents use LinkedIn at least once a week, and nearly all (97%) use it at least once a month. Two out of five respondents use FaceBook on a weekly basis, and only one out of five (22%) use Twitter that frequently.
Nearly all members (97%) have involvement with national HRPS; most of whom (41%) use those benefits a few times a year. This includes the HRPS Website, People & Strategy Journal, HRPS Knowledge Center, HRPS conferences, Human Capital Institute, business book reviews, and I4CP.
