Hello PPMA members and friends

In the lead up to our fabulous Annual Seminar in June, Stuart Elrick, our Policy Lead for Membership Engagement and CPD, issues a rallying call for those looking to join the Public Sector People Manager’s Association

“Political and economic challenge and change continue to make unprecedented demands on HR and OD in public services. From public sector policy reform and the austerity agenda’s impact on staff and services to the effect of the ‘consumer society’ on customer expectations of public services, the context for HR and OD practitioners is highly complex and unique. A daunting challenge.

Being a member of the PPMA can assist you in addressing the challenge.

PPMA exists for its members. We offer support to help them address the short and long-term challenges they face in their organisation. Members come from all sizes of organisations across the public sector and at all levels in their HR OD careers.

Members are encouraged to participate in our professional development opportunities such as Rising Stars, Peer into the Future, Apprentices and seminar programmes.

Being a member of the PPMA, gives you access to the latest thinking on HR and OD issues that affect your organisations.

So what do our Members say about PPMA? Feedback from a recent survey included; “If I have a problem I know there is a network I can tap into to help me, it’s great” and “being able to call on PPMA colleagues to discuss a mutual problem helps” and “The PPMA LinkedIn network is great”.

The theme for our Annual Seminar in June is ‘Lets talk, people’ – so why not join the conversation and become part of the PPMA family?
