About the Company

The Company of Human Resource Professionals was formally established as a Guild in June 2015 to foster and promote the profession of HR, to help others into – and through – the HR profession, and to reach out to the community through charitable and pro bono HR activities. Equally, we support The Lord Mayor and the City of London, and collaborate with the other Guilds and Livery Companies. In July 2022 the Guild was elevated by the Court of Aldermen to a Company without Livery.

We welcome individuals from all disciplines within the HR profession ranging from generalist practitioners through to specialists in all HR disciplines, as well as those engaged in related disciplines (pensions professionals, employment and immigration lawyers, management consultants, etc). In particular, practicing and promoting diversity and inclusion is an important element of the Company's remit and this is a key function within the profession.
