Communities of Practice

HR Professionals

This is a Community of Practice for NSW public sector employees working in Human Resources (HR). We share information and provide opportunities for professional development.

Our mission is to position the HR profession as a key contributor in delivering business outcomes. Our community is about more than sharing best practice and supporting one another. We have a strong focus on uplifting the profile of the HR profession in the NSW public sector. We do this by providing development opportunities and showcasing the value HR professionals bring to achieving business goals.

Join our community

The community provides opportunities to connect HR people from across the NSW Public Sector, in a forum where people can share ideas and experiences. Our members are invited to events to meet other HR professionals and hear from key speakers in the public and private sector talk on a range of HR topics. You will be invited to participate in programs that provide development opportunities to HR professionals working in the NSW public sector.
