The Australian HR Institute (AHRI) is the national association representing human resource and people management professionals. We have around 20,000 members from Australia and across the globe.

Whether you want to develop your career, advance the HR profession, get HR support, stay in touch with the latest industry developments, or help to grow the HR and management skills of your team, AHRI membership is for you.

AHRI sets the professional standard for HR in Australia through HR certification; provides formal education and training services in HR, people management and business skills; produces world-class conferences; and holds seminars and networking opportunities all over Australia – including our biggest annual event – the AHRI National Convention. Each year, AHRI commends excellence in HR practice across Australia through the highly regarded AHRI Awards.

The association sets standards through accreditation of HR qualifications at universities across Australia, conducts research into people management practices, and assists governments in the development of policy and legislation that affects people at work.
