Personnel Today's HR Directors Club is celebrating signing up its 1,000th member.
Membership of the club - a forum for senior-level HR professionals - reached the landmark figure when Richard Latham, head of HR at housebuilder Persimmon, joined earlier this month.
Launched in April 2003, the club was set up to provide HR leaders with business inspiration and the chance to meet their peers. It has evolved to offer wider networking opportunities by opening up various levels of membership, such as associate level for finance directors and chief executives, and affiliate membership for aspiring HR directors.
All members are invited to a series of briefings over a 12-month period presented by guest speakers from the world of HR, business and politics.
The next event is on 20 February at the Globe Theatre, London, with Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services union. He will speak on how to best manage union relations and HR capability.
