Advancing the HR profession

AHRI sets the professional standard for HR in Australia through HR certification; provides formal education and training services in HR, people management and business skills; produces world-class conferences; and holds seminars and networking opportunities all over Australia – including our biggest annual event – the AHRI National Convention. Each year, AHRI commends excellence in HR practice across Australia through the highly regarded AHRI Awards. AHRI's Model of Excellence underpins all of AHRI's professional development products, events and programs.

The association sets standards through accreditation of HR qualifications at universities across Australia, conducts research into people management practices, and assists governments in the development of policy and legislation that affects people at work.

AHRI is owned by its members and governed by a Board of Directors with a Council of State Presidents that comprises an elected president representing each state and territory of Australia.
