People In Aid network reaches 200 members
We are delighted to announce that there are now over 200 humanitarian and development organisations in the People In Aid network.
Membership of People In Aid is a cost-effective way to access valuable people management information that can help organisations and their managers save time and work more effectively.
At their last meeting People In Aid's Trustees elected new members, bringing the total number of organisations now part of the network above 200. This milestone represents an ever increasing awareness and focus in the sector on the role that good practice in people management can play when tackling the complex problem of poverty.
"Having recently received accrediation in the People In Aid Code, it has enabled the organisation to feel confident that our policies and procedures are supporting good people mangement practice and has identified areas for improvement."
HR Director, international humanitarian and development organisation
"When I joined People In Aid in 2001 there were 22 members, 13 of them UK-based (60%). To have reached over 200 is a fantastic achievement, particularly as they now are based in 45 countries and a much lower % (29%) are from the UK. This reflects the effort of People In Aid's staff to be sure, but also the value which the network and its strategic mandates from the sector are adding to global efforts to improve the quality of HR and people management in the sector. What pleases me just as much is that 18 of those original 22 are still members. We thank them, and all who have joined the network since, for their commitment to such a good cause and to what is their network.'
We believe we are the largest transnational membership network in the sector (please tell us if we are wrong). The Trustees and staff remain committed to supporting the members' needs and we will continue to deliver the same quality of resources, events and support we are known for, ensuring that People In Aid membership remains a cost-effective way to access valuable people management information that can the sector save time and work more effectively.
If you aren't a member, join now!"
