Professor Alain Gosselin has just been named a CRHA Fellow. He and two colleagues received this honour at the annual conference of the Ordre des conseillers en ressources humaines agréés (CRHA) du Québec, held earlier
in November at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.
The title of CRHA Fellow is a tribute to recipients’ leadership, superior skills, reputation for excellence and contribution to the advancement of the profession. This distinction, the highest honour granted by the Order,
salutes these individuals as models for all human resources management professionals.
Over the past 30 years, Alain Gosselin has trained generations of human resources managers and shared his passion for the profession with them.
An exceptional communicator with a gift for making subject matter accessible, a prolific author and a much sought-after speaker, he is an acknowledged expert in strategic human resources management and talent management.
At HEC Montréal, he continues to do his utmost to make the School a prime partner for high-level executive education.
In 2007, HEC Montréal awarded Professor Gosselin its Grand Prize for Teaching Excellence. He also received the 2012 Esdras Minville Award, saluting the remarkable contribution made by a professor to HEC Montréal’s international renown in the academic, professional and public spheres over the previous three years.
This is not the first time the Order has honoured Professor Gosselin, in fact. In 2008, he received its Volunteer of the Year award. At the time he was lauded for his outstanding commitment, over the previous five years, as a member of the Independent Board of Examiners, part of the Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations, in preparing questions for the National Knowledge Examination.
With close to 9,000 members, the Ordre des conseillers en ressources humaines agréés is the fifth-largest association of its kind in the world. It is the only organization in Quebec mandated to award human resources professionals a title certifying their competency.
