The Cyprus Human Resources Management Association (CyHRMA) organized yet another successful Annual Conference this year! The 2019 Conference took place on 3rd October at the Filoxenia Conference Centre, Nicosia with over 250 delegates, indicating its increasing popularity amongst HR professionals and establishing this annual event as the cornerstone of the Association.

Starting with welcoming speeches delivered by the President of the Board of Directors, Mr. Panayiotis Thrasyvoulou, Mr. Christos Malikkides, representing the Minister of Labour, Welfare and Social Insurance, and Mr. George Petrou, the President of the Employers and Industrialists’ Federation, the significance of this event and the Association’s work in general were acknowledged.

A special award was nominated to an extremely dedicated and valuable member of the Association, Mr Costas Papakyriacou. Mr Papakyriacou served the Association for a number of years as Board Secretary and President and has been tirelessly volunteering his personal time for many-many years, offering his knowledge and expertise in numerous Association committees.

The conference showcased the most current, innovative and thought-provoking HR trends. As what has now become customary with the Association’s Annual Conferences, an elite group of global speakers was carefully selected to share insights and ideas with the participants on the future role the HR function has to play. The three (3) subject matter experts delivering keynote presentations were:

Peter Cheese, Chairman of CIPD and lecturer, presented the trends of the future of work and HR. It was a very compelling presentation that stirred a lot of interest from the audience.

Ben Whitter talked about the importance of Employee Experience and the role HR professionals to have to play in achieving this.
Stephanie Davies spoke about embracing an environment of happiness and humour at the workplace as key elements of successful organisations and teams.

The expert speakers charmed the audience with their fascinating topics and unique presenting angles.

The event included an interesting discussion amongst a panel of local HR professionals who talked about their organisations’ experiences and challenges in the current labour market.

It was admittedly an extremely valuable day which successfully brought some of the best minds under one platform providing the opportunity for debate, discussion and dissection of evolving trends, key issues and challenges.

The event provided a platform for challenging previous established thinking, gaining insights, inspiration and tools to bring best practices in human resources issues and the challenges HR professionals face in the complex, and ever-changing business environment.
