Supporting Regional Excellence
What do we do?
The Bendigo Regional HR Network is proud to provide local HR professionals and business owners with access to speakers and experts in a range of topics relevant to managing staff, by offering free events throughout the year.
The Network provides a professional forum for people involved in employing staff (HR professionals or those in management or support roles) to:
- Meet and discuss topical employment-related issues
- Share knowledge and experiences with peers in a supported and confidential environment
- Provide a forum to exchange views with an emphasis on practical outcomes and strategies to manage day-to-day employment-related issues
All Bendigo Regional HR Network events are provided free of charge. From time to time, we may promote events which we believe will add value to our members, some of which may involve a fee for attendance.
We would like to sincerely thank the City of Greater Bendigo for their ongoing financial support of the Bendigo Regional HR Network.
If you would like to see upcoming events as well as details of previous events see the Bendigo Regional HR Network Events Page here!
New members are always welcome and membership is free.
