The Human Resources Forum (THRF) was founded in the mid 1970s by a number of enthusiastic HR Managers who were keen to network, share experiences and seek continuous professional development. The Forum is open to anyone who is connected with Human Resources and wishes to pursue those objectives.
The Human Resources Forum currently has over 300 members representing over 150 companies from most business sectors across the Emirates. The Forum is managed by an elected committee which meets monthly to organise approximately 20 seminars, workshops, site visits and other events each year to achieve the THRFs objectives. Noted international and local speakers are invited to address the Forum, on topics covering mainstream HR practices, Personal Development, Business Excellence and topical HR issues of common concern.
THRF also operates an online forum for members, providing discussion boards and blogs, to enable members to ask questions and get feedback, share ideas and discuss key issues in HR in the region. This area also enables members to post vacancies and CVs in order to facilitate inter-community cooperation with regards to jobs.
The individual membership fee is 300 AED per annum (January to December) and there is a 150 AED joining fee. There are also membership options for students and also for corporate members – detail can be found by clicking on the Join tab. All the events are free to members, including the annual social event which incorporates the AGM.
