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.

BSP FHRI National Convention
FHRI’s major event is the BSP FHRI Annual National Convention. The Convention is proudly supported by the BSP Group. 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.
The Convention attracts over one hundred HR Practitioners and Senior Executives around the Nation and this year, the number had increased to around 250 delegates. The theme for this year’s convention was “Our People: Today’s Talent, Tomorrow’s Success”. The 2017 convention had 14 dynamic speakers who shared their knowledge in trending HR issues in developing our people.
The Institute now plans for a bigger and better 2018 Convention.
Fiji HR Institute Awards
FHRI had introduced the Fiji HR Institute Awards 2017 as a separate event which was on the 27th of May 2017. The Institute is now working on the FHRI Awards 2018 that would be happening in May 2018.
In 2017 FHRI Awards there were three categories of the Awards namely, the Young HR Practitioner, Senior HR Practitioner and Organization Development and Leadership. The Gold winner of Young and Senior HR Practitioner category attended the AHRI National Convention 2017 which is kindly sponsored by AHRI.
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.
“HR Intersection” is the annual newsletter of FHRI which is published in the 1st quarter of the year.
