Welcome to our branch area

A warm welcome to the East London and Docklands branch webpage, where below you can register for our upcoming branch events and learn more about our committee and core aims. We are a diverse and inclusive committee and welcome ideas for future events and requests to join the committee.

Our core aim is to provide a comprehensive programme of events tailored for our branch members in the East London and Docklands area. As such we recognise the broad range of people management priorities amongst this diverse business community. We aim to ensure that events are designed in an inclusive and participatory manner and that our programme is flexible to ensure we address the most pressing HR issues of our time. Another key aim is to ensure events have a series of practical takeaways and people professionals can embed key insights into their organisations.

On behalf of the committee, we look forward to meeting you at upcoming events and please do share your ideas and feedback for events and branch activities.
