Branch Information

The HPMA South West branch is made up of a small but dedicated committee, we work in partnership with the South West Leadership Academy, the PPMA and commercial sponsors, to whom we are very grateful, to inform and develop our events for members.

We recognise that many HR professionals may have developed their skills/expertise or have spent the majority of their careers in specialist areas but are increasingly being asked to provide support on the whole range of workforce solutions. We are therefore utilising our partnerships to focus on the benefits of developing our programme of events across the workforce agenda. Several events covering new topic areas have been organised in recent months including for example; combining an organisational Development (OD) lens with HR expertise, workforce analytics, talent management, bullying, harassment and incivility in the workplace, managing complex medical issues.

We recognise that organisations are increasingly seeking blended workforce solutions to help them transform, grow and develop and we are seeking to support and enable workforce professionals to increasingly contribute to this.
