Aims & objectives
Attracting the highest management levels of the HR world, this Forum offers HR professionals of both small and large organisations an informal setting to share best practice and experiences on issues which impact their departments and, ultimately, their employees. It was tailored to meet the requirements of its members who set the annual agenda and determine future topics. Speakers are invited from member and non-member organisations, encouraging discussion and the exchange of experiences from a wide range of industries. The Forum provides an excellent opportunity for networking between members. It has an ultimate goal of reviewing the impact of employer legislation and, in the long term, influencing future decisions in this area.
