What makes us unique?

  • Human Resources Online is necessary. Having earned their seat at the table years ago, HR leaders are now adding strategic value to business goals by leading large-scale change projects, digital transformation, and innovating the employee experience. Human Resources Online equips CHROs with a platform that identifies and shares best practices in engaging, attracting and retaining the best talent for their organisations.
  • Human Resources Online is relevant. All content delivered – be it in print, digitally, or through live or virtual events – is the product of continuous qualitative and quantitative research into the information needs of senior HR practitioners in Asia. Human Resources Online’s products focus solely on what HR decision makers want to learn by constantly creating interventions that add value to their personal growth.
  • Human Resources Online is trusted. HR heads do not have time to read magazines and attend events they cannot trust. This is why they choose Human Resources Online as their go-to source for creative new ideas, productive conversations, and relevant platforms to succeed in their roles.
