HR in HE Community

Theme: Strengthening universities
HR And PR Conference, Glasgow 2014

The HR in HE Community is a forum for all staff working in HR, from the most experienced professionals to those looking to increase, expand or develop their institution’s HR function.

The community provides a space for colleagues from across the Commonwealth to share their knowledge, experience and good practice, showcase ideas, and discover potential avenues for collaboration. Members can also keep up-to-date with the latest trends and opportunities and promote the work of their team and university

University HR functions have a unique responsibility: HR leaders must ensure the best staff are recruited, developed and retained, and that their efforts are aligned to the university’s strategic mission. The growth of many universities means the HR function has become increasingly complex and staff need to be supported to grow with their institutions. The HR in HE Community champions the importance of the strategic positioning of HR in higher education institutions across our membership.
