All About People.
FHRD was set up in 1990 to spearhead the evolution of people management and development practices as well as the human resources profession in Malta.
The Foundation is an autonomous, private, independent body.
FHRD works in partnership with its corporate members, the professional conglomerate of HR practitioners and service providers, leaders of the industry, and other key local players in the field of human resources management and development. Throughout the year, FHRD offers its own set of professional accredited training programmes and organises a number of events related to the world of HR.
The Foundation also offers a set of academic programmes in the field of management and psychology in partnership with the University of Leicester.
FHRD is a member of the European Association of Personnel Management (EAPM) and the World Federation of Personnel Management Associations (WFPMA).
FHRD has moulded its portfolio over a vast range of HR-related ventures, and is an ever-growing enterprise fuelled by the determination of its founders and their dedicated successors. Their vision of a progressive community of like-minded professionals has proliferated into the hub of open support that is FHRD as we know it today.
Aside from the belief in a spectrum of activities that raise the HR profile on the Maltese islands, the Foundation maintains a simple, successful formula, where above else, people matter.
That is why FHRD is all about people.
