Strategic HR Management - About HRPS

HR People & Strategy (HRPS) is a strategically focused, ground-breaking network of influential HR executives and innovative HRM professionals representing the world’s most prominent organizations.  HRPS is regarded by many as the premier professional organization focused on the intersection of people and strategy.

Chartered in 1977 as the Human Resource Planning Society, the founders rallied around their desire for an association that would bring people together who were interested in advancing the science and art of human resource management. They were —as they are today — HR professionals, leading academics and trusted advisers. The implied goal was to help people acquire the knowledge and credibility required to play a keyrole in the design and execution of organizational strategy.

From the start, HRPS was known for attracting top talent to its conferences and workshops. The combination of thought-provoking speakers and educators, coupled with practical lessons from HR executives and experienced consultants, differentiated the society. Various forums provided opportunities for small group discussions and debates on areas of critical interest to the profession. At these events, and within the HRPS sponsored blogs and discussion groups, all views are welcome. Unlike other professional associations, HRPS has never taken a public stand on any political agenda or piece of legislation. This allows for a diversity of opinion and a level of civility that is refreshing.
