About The HR World

Who are we? 

The HR World was set up to bring like-minded thinking senior HRs together to share ideas and problem solve some of the biggest HR challenges in the UK – and, where applicable, on an international scale.

As an independent organisation, the platform holds regular networking events and covers the issues that matter to our growing community.

The HR World exists online as an editorial platform as well as in person through a lively events programme.

Our audience and circulation

This direction is overseen by a team of specialists in their field to provide insight for HR, recruitment and financial director level positions in the UK.

Our monthly online readership online is circa 4-5000 users.

Our purpose

We aim to support open and powerful dialogue in support of HRs seeking to find relevant and meaningful solutions for today’s biggest issues facing the workforce.
