Like other professional institutions in Fiji, the inception of the FHRI was not by chance, but rather a well thought out initiative by a group of HR professionals with a common thought to develop our nation’s most valuable asset, its people.
The vision of FHRI is to be a national leader in promoting Human Resources development in increasing the level of performance and productivity.
Every organization looks forward to having employees who are always working towards their professional development. FHRI provides trainings, workshops, Annual Convention and talanoa sessions for its members on emerging Human Resources issues and topics. These activities are organized for HR practitioners to deliver their service more efficiently.
The members of the Asia Pacific Federation of Human Resource Management (APFHRM) meet regularly to share ideas, perspectives and information relating to the practice of HR in the Asia Pacific region and their individual institutes. Below are the country reports for Fiji.
FHRI’s major event is the BSP FHRI Annual National Convention. The convention is usually for 2 days and aims to attract not only Human Resources Practitioners but Company CEO’s, Senior Managements and Managers/ staff of other departments. The speakers are selected very thoughtfully so that they can cover both local and international issues surrounding workplace and human resources. The convention also provides a great networking platform to the delegates.
This year the convention was at the Warwick Fiji Resort and Spa on the 11th and 12th of November. The theme for the convention was “Human Capital: Profitable Investment” and this was very well delivered by the Speakers, both local and international.
It was amazing to see 170 delegates attending the convention from different aspects of work field. The delegates had a great learning experience and networking with the speakers and other delegates.
Usually the HR Practitioners awards were linked to the Annual convention. This year the committee decided to have a separate event for the awards and this will be in May 2017.
The main publication of FHRI is the newsletter which will be released at the end of the year.
