MAHRP has initiated to mark the 22nd February of each year, as the day dedicated to Human Resources professionals in Maldives, to recognize their contributions, raise awareness of the importance of investing in human resources, provide a platform for professional development, and improve the image of the HR profession. This initiative will help to promote the critical role of HR professionals in achieving organizational success and creating a better workplace for all. This is the first time, the Maldives is marking a day dedicated to people who manage human capital.
Human Resources (HR) professionals are the backbone of any organization. They play a critical role in managing an organization’s most important asset – its people. To recognize the significant contributions of HR professionals, it is essential to set aside a day dedicated to honouring their hard work and dedication.
Marking a day for HR professionals is important to acknowledge their vital role in an organization’s success. HR professionals are responsible for recruiting, hiring, and retaining employees, developing and implementing HR policies, managing employee benefits, and ensuring compliance with labour laws. They provide support to employees, listen to their concerns and ensure a safe and healthy workplace.
In addition to recognizing the contributions of HR professionals, marking a day for them can help raise awareness of the importance of investing in human resources. Human capital is a critical component of any business’s success, and investing in employees can result in significant returns in terms of increased productivity, employee satisfaction, and improved customer service. By acknowledging the contributions of HR professionals, businesses can help promote the importance of investing in their workforce.
Moreover, marking a day for HR professionals can help provide a platform for networking and professional development. HR professionals can come together to share best practices, discuss challenges, and learn from each other. This can help them develop new skills and ideas that can be used to improve their organization’s HR policies and practices.
Marking a day for HR professionals can help improve the image of the HR profession. By highlighting the importance of HR professionals and the contributions they make, it can help attract new talent to the field and encourage more people to consider a career in HR.
