About the SIG

This SIG comprises a network of human resources professionals who share best practice and strategies on all aspects of Human Resources. The group's goals and objectives are to:

  • Share knowledge, experience, programs and policies in a collegiate environment
  • Promote best practice and strategies
  • Advance the practice of people management
  • Maintain a network of human resources professionals who contribute to each other's growth; learn from each other and advance the practice of people management

Who Should Attend

Human Resources professionals working in Local Government. 

Human Resources Online Forum

This SIG is supported by an online forum. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our forums are just for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. Agendas, minutes and presentations will also be posted on the forum.

Kirsty James, Human Resources Business Partner, Glen Eira City Council

I decided to become a Convenor because having attended the Learning & Development SIG meetings over the past few years, I have always found them to be extremely beneficial. I've enjoyed the knowledge sharing, the networking, the ideas, the contacts and the inspiration that comes from being part of a SIG. We are in a unique industry where we can exchange knowledge and information with our counterparts from other Councils and I have found inspiration from what other Councils are doing in HR and L&D. My hopes for the SIG is to have it running as successfully as the L&D SIG and that it becomes an inspirational group that HR staff from all Councils look to share knowledge, ideas, information and motivation.
