PPMA HR Star 2017

It would be hard to miss how much the world of work has changed over the last few years. With plenty of emerging challenges and opportunities, fresh thinking is required to ensure these can be harnessed by HR and the wider public service workplace.

That’s what HR Star is all about. It gives emerging HR talent the chance to showcase their big ideas for the future of public services. It’s a platform where HR Stars can hone their skills and abilities, and cement your place as a future HR leader in public services.

HR Star is run as a partnership between the PPMA and ManpowerGroup, supported by the Local Government Association. So it’s a great opportunity to be recognised on an industry-wide stage. In fact, previous HR Star winners have gone on to be recognised with accolades from the CIPD and Personnel Today. Added to this, numerous participants have quickly climbed the career ladder since taking part. It’s the perfect opportunity to show what you’re really made of.

This event is free of charge to enter for PPMA members and a small charge for non-members and full details can be found on the following link:


Once we’ve reviewed all of the applications, we’ll invite a shortlist to join us in February 2017 at Warwick University. During this two day event, we’ll hone and stretch your abilities through coaching and masterclasses, so the HR Stars can unleash their full potential.

This is an amazing opportunity to kick off the new year and I would encourage you to share this information with anyone you believe deserves the chance to shine!
