Welcome Message by SHRI
Dear Member and Friend,
Welcome to the Singapore Human Resources Institute (SHRI). A brand name
synonymous with building the HR brand and culture.
Established since 1965, SHRI has been instrumental in building the HR brand in
Singapore and beyond the local shores. We started off as a group of like-minded
HR professionals who meet up periodically to discuss labour and industrial
relations issues. Then, Singapore Institute of Personnel Management (SIPM) was
officially registered with 34 members. Now, SHRI owns a strong network of over
3,000 members and represents the interests of over 750,000 employees in
For over 40 years, SHRI’s brand has become synonymous with advancing and
professionalising the HR profession, standards and practices. As an independent,
not-for-profit professional HR body, SHRI has been advocating the development of
appropriate standards of human resource management and development that reflect
global conditions and interests of the workforce.
SHRI creates a comprehensive suite of events, conferences, seminars, dialogues
and sharing sessions that serve as springboard for corporations and individuals
to find their own breakthroughs and transformations from discussions, exchanges,
learning and networking. Our academic programmes and workshops are also
customised to cater to the dynamic learning needs of the current workforce. SHRI
aims to reach out to the different stratums of the workforce, from the
professionals, managers, executives, technicians (PMETs) to the mature and
retrenched workers, and those who are into career transitions. SHRI seeks to
provide them with the resources and avenues to enhance their competency and competitive levels to maintain
As the pioneer of promulgating transformations of the HR brand, SHRI is now into
the next phase of powering human capital to catapult organisations and
individuals into developing and grooming people in the new economy.
In your continuous quest for experiential learning and knowledge, I hope you
will fully tap on and benefit from the opportunities and resources made available
to you at SHRI.
I wish you every success and enjoyment in your journey of knowledge acquisition.
