We have branches nationwide organising locally run meetings and events, which may be networking events, seminars, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) or HR Café Connects. 

HR Café Connects are for HRNZ members only.  These complimentary catch ups are an opportunity to network with fellow HR practitioners for some collegiality, problem solving, and access to ideas and professional networking. A great way to build relationships and make connections with other local HR members. 

Our ever popular Branch Events provide members with the opportunity to network with fellow presenters, share best practice and learn from informative relevant presentations. Members are welcome to attend any branch events across the country.

Non-members are welcome to attend events at the non member rate and some events may be restricted to Members Only. 

The branches throughout New Zealand are detailed below:

Branches are an important and integral part of the HRNZ Community. It is acknowledged that Branch Presidents and Committee Members are a group of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about elevating the capability and reputation of the HR profession.  They support their members by regularly organising events and introducing guest speakers along including Special Interest Groups (SIGS), Networking, and Café Connects events.
