The Australian HR Institute (AHRI) is the national association representing human resource and people management professionals. They have around 20,000 members from Australia and across the globe.
AHRI sets the professional standard for HR in Australia through HR certification; provides formal education and training services in HR, people management and business skills; produces world-class conferences; and holds seminars and networking opportunities all over Australia – including their biggest annual event – the AHRI National Convention.
