Greater Manchester Police (GMP) is set to host its first ever HR conference.
About 120 staff involved in all aspects of employee issues across the force will attend the event on 25 November.
GMP has more than 12,000 employees and has been undergoing significant change to the way HR services are delivered. During the last 12 months, its HR professionals have been moved on to geographic policing divisions, where they report directly to the divisional commander.
Andrew Marston, GMP HR director, said: “This is an exciting and challenging time for HR professionals and we hope the conference will help them in their daily work.
“We are pleased with the progress of the devolution of HR services and bringing people together will help professional networking, learning and development. I hope we can make the conference an annual event.”
Chief Constable Michael Todd will open the conference and outline the vision for the Force over the next 12 months. The programme also includes a range of external speakers, on subjects including employment law.
