HR Club Next Generation Summer School

HR Club Next Generation Summer School is a platform for training the best representatives of the new generations and launching their careers in the field of human resources. During the two weeks of school, the young students participate in seminars and training sessions given by renowned HR professionals, they work in teams and visit companies, thus getting familiar with the human resources domain.

Throughout the 11 editions so far, the summer school has gathered over 150 tutors and instructed over 200 students. Approximately 60% of the summer school alumni already work in human resources, in Romania or abroad. Other 20% are continuing their studies or work in NGOs. Also, some of the students received employment or internship offers in HR from the summer school tutors themselves.

The most recent edition of HR Club Next Generation Summer School took place between 3rd and 14th July, 2017, at the HR Club offices in Bucharest. Details about the 11th edition of the project are available on the dedicated microwebsite.

The HR Competences Model and HR Club Certification System

The Human Resources Competence Model for Romanian professionals was launched in 2016 and is the first in kind in our country. Ever since the foundation of our professional association, one of the biggest wishes of the HR community was the creation of a system of competences adapted to the needs of the Romanian market, as a base for a certification recognized by the members of our community. Read here the launch message (in Romanian) of the HR Club President, Radu Mavrodin and find out who was part of the task force that worked on this project.

Rapoarte HR Club

European finance projects

HR Club studies and reports

Coffee Talks

The themes of HR Club events are chosen according to the interest and continuous feedback received from the human resources professionals, but, in order to ensure that we meet the needs of all our members, we created the Coffee Talks format: small gatherings initiated by HR Club practitioners, on a theme of their choice. Logistics is provided in full by the HR Club team, and the member initiating the meeting has the right to select the participants according to their interest (eg HR recruiters or HR managers in the industry).

Coffee Talk meetings were initiated on topics such as: social media for HR, bonuses and reward schemes, from employer branding to employee branding, internal coaching, recruitment and integration of people with disabilities, etc.



Master Classes

The HR Club Master Classes are special sessions where human resources professionals have the opportunity to meet renowned international professors and consultants. The first two sessions took place in 2009 and were given by Dave Ulrich, University of Michigan and Paul Evans, Insead. The Master Class series continued with Zoltan Buzady, CEU Business School; Maury Peiperl, IMD Lausanne; Ken Harmon, Kennesaw State University, USA, and in 2014, Ronald Michael Bradfield, Strathclyde Business School.

Dave Ulrich came back to Bucharest in 2016 for a third Master Class dedicated to the HR Club members, and, later that year, we welcomed Hal Gregersen, executive director of MIT Leadership Center. In 2017, Lynda Gratton, the coordinator of the most valuable human resources program in the world, at London Business School, came to Bucharest for the first time to hold the Master Class "Future of Work and Future of HR".
