The European and the French HR associations
The European Association for People Management (EAPM) was founded in 1962. The Association forms an umbrella body of national organisations which represent more than 250,000 HR professionals in over 30 countries. It is purely professional and specialist in nature. It is an experience exchange organisation without profit-related objectives. It is independent of all employers, trade union, state or political bodies. Bob Morton, representing CIPD from UK is currently President and Izy Behar, representing ANDRH from France is immediate past-president.
Founded in 1947, ANDRH is a non-profit organization gathering human resources professionals of companies and organizations from different business sectors, public and private, small and large, national and international. With more than 5,000 members, organized in 80 local groups, it is the largest community of human resources professionals in France. ANDRH is one of the founding members of EAPM in 1962. On the occasion of its 70th anniversary, ANDRH is organizing the 28th European Congress, in Paris, on October, 27th 2017.
The third constitutional assembly of the French Republic after the National Assembly and the Senate, the French Economic, Social and Environmental Council (ESEC) represents key economic, social and environmental fields, promoting cooperation between different socio-professional interest groups and ensuring they are part of the process of shaping and reviewing public policy. The ESEC has a major role to play in these times of economic, social and environmental change. It advises the government and parliament, and participates in the development of economic, social and environmental policies.
The Council is composed of public figures and representatives of the associative sector, employers and employees. Representing tens of millions of French citizens, the ESEC is at the heart of major social issues and develops new proposals relating to the key topics that will have an impact upon our lives today and tomorrow.
