Getting the human element right in the workplace is essential for developing successful, high performing organisations. This involves a complex range of factors that Human Resources teams can impact and contribute to, so it’s critical for organisational success that a professionally recognised practitioner provides this guidance and expert advice at a strategic and operational level in the same way that accountants, lawyers and other highly regarded, regulated professions do in the respective professional areas.

We’ve developed our Chartered membership framework for New Zealand Human Resources practitioners to closely align to what other Human Resources membership organisations have implemented in other countries. In this way it helps to raise the level of professional achievement for Human Resources on a global basis.

HRINZ is committed to developing a higher level of Human Resources practitioner capability to ensure that workplaces around New Zealand are the best they can be and to benefit from a level of professionalism that will be recognised on a national and international basis.
