Groups / HR


People are the key to any successful business and our industries have a range of sector-specific issues to address.

Our Human Resources forum (HR forum) exists to share best practice in this area and tackle the major HR issues affecting our industry. This includes addressing the sector’s skills gap, attracting and retaining millennial workers, the impact of Brexit on skills and recruitment, equality and diversity, training and safeguarding.

The forum offers an opportunity to partner with likeminded HR practicioners to share industry insight, knoweldge and experience while providing the practical support to promote best practice. Offering a great opportunity to increase engagement between peers and members' own HR networks, attendees will be up-to-date with legislation and have the space to debate its relevance and the impact on their own business.

First established in 2007 by sister organisation ACE, the forum also covers issues such as equality and diversity, as well as training and education. Recognising that the issues facing EIC and ACE members are similar, and as a result of the closer working relationship between the two organisations, the forum welcomed EIC members to its meeetings in 2021.

Much of the forum's output can be found on the Resources section of our website, with more to be added soon.

The forum meets quarterly and the current chair is Helen Salt of ACE member Curtins. Richard Wood (Hoare Lea) is vice chair.
