Our Strategic Themes

Our Strategic Themes


Our Strategic Themes cover the areas of HR & OD practice that we believe our professional community should be focusing on so that our organisations are building workforces that can thrive in an ever more complex and changing world.

We’ve thought about our themes carefully. We wanted to create them so that they would be fit for the future but that we retain the ability to respond quickly to emerging issues. This means we focus on ‘doing stuff’ and not endlessly being distracted by what we’ve called the themes.

Our Regions

Our Regions


Our Regions are the lifeblood of the PPMA.

They provide the opportunity for our members to meet, share, exchange and learn from each other and their organisations.

The aim within each region is to provide a meeting, whether real or virtual, on a variety of HR and OD subject matters. These meetings give our members an opportunity to hear about latest issues, research, or showcase of work happening in the HR/OD world.
