Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders

We maintain a simple, successful formula, where above else, people matter.

That is why FHRD is all about people.

The Natural Home for Human Resources Professionals

FHRD was set up in 1990 to spearhead the evolution of people management and development practices as well as the human resources profession in Malta. The Foundation is an autonomous, private, independent body. The Foundation works in partnership with its corporate members, the professional conglomerate of HR practitioners and service providers, leaders of the industry, and other key local players in the field of human resources management and development.

FHRD offers its own set of professional accredited training programmes related to the world of HR. The programmes have been designed to focus on the practical aspects of the world of work. The Foundation also offers a robust portfolio of academic programmes in the field of management and psychology in partnership with the University of Leicester and a number of specialised academic programmes with highly ranked international universities. Throughout the year, FHRD organises a number of seminars and FORAs dealing with a range of business-related themes, culminating with the annual HR Conference, the largest conference and trade show of its kind in Malta.
