The Gibraltar HR Forum was founded in 2000 to provide an open forum for HR practitioners and the original intention was to enable opportunities for an exchange of information, support new comers, promote goods and services that would be of use to HR functions and form a professional body that would represent HR interests and best practice. This is still true today and our aim is to raise the profile of the Human Resource Profession in Gibraltar and sustain the best human resource management and development practices.
We provide networking of products, services and expertise between members coordinated by The Committee. Members have the opportunity to input ideas and raise issues that need to be addressed in the area of human resource management and development.
An important part of the group’s activities are the seminars and training activities delivered by professional speakers and local HR Practitioners on subjects directly related to continued professional development and the ongoing continuous review of HR best practice, including legislative changes both locally and in the UK.
We seek to provide both direct and indirect benefits to our members through:
- opportunities for HR professionals to meet, share experiences and discuss challenging issues in the work environment
- networking of products, services and expertise between members coordinated by the members
- the opportunity to have a voice in local HR matters at both organisational and national levels
- commissioning of research projects on important issues affecting employing organisations. Results are fed back to members
- seminars and training activities provided by professional speakers on subjects directly related to promoting best practice in human resource management, at reduced rates for members.
