We will continue to work closely with government and key stakeholders to ensure that your voice is heard as we continue to champion better work and working lives for the benefits of individuals, businesses, economies and society.

As the professional body for HR and people development, we will draw on our strong base of evidence and experience to continue engagement with members, law makers and other key stakeholders on these important considerations.

We will continue to focus on how HR, in particular, can help build a more productive, stronger workforce, and workplaces that engender responsible and sustainable practices, matters that will become increasingly critical.
