Strategic, Purposeful, Collaborative

To forward our organizational vision and mission, the HERC Advisory Board established a 2014-2018 strategic plan. Designed to guide HERC initiatives and ensure that organizational priorities and investments support the needs of members, the strategic plan is based on four transformational themes: sustainable, distinctive, forward-thinking, and data-driven. Our 2015-16 annual report illustrates how HERC and our members, like many hands working on many pieces of a quilt, came together and proved that working together works.

John Kendzior
"Harvard University has been a supporter of HERC since its creation. To date we have measured the organization's effectiveness for us, and our membership has definitely returned more to the University when compared to our annual investment. In less than one year, Harvard saved nearly $35,000 in advertising discounts. In addition to recruiting some strong talent, we have collaborated with colleagues from peer institutions on a number of activities, including diversity-based forums, vendor negotiations, and membership meetings. HERC has also helped accompanying spouses and partners of faculty and administrators with their recruitment needs."
