President of WFPMA Message

Welcome Letter

It is with great pleasure that we are conducting the WORLD HR CONGRESS 2020-COLOMBO, with the organization of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management Sri Lanka (CIPM) and the support of the Asia Pacific Federation of Human Resource Management (APFHRM).

I manifest on behalf of the Board members of World Federation of People Management Associations (WFPMA), our sincere thanks and enthusiasm to the CIPM Sri Lanka for a congress of content excellence, speakers and organization.

With the theme “Exalting People Professionals: Explore, Expand and Excel” the congress will present in a global way the trends in people management in the face of scenarios that show us how important and necessary is the mission of promoting the best quality of life, of business sustainability and a society for growing.

The digital revolution has demanded a leadership role in promoting humanization in the corporate world and an expansion of our gaze on the world. Emotion and logic are the basis of people’s interaction with Artificial intelligence so present nowadays.

For the WFPMA the realization of the World Congress is also the opportunity to bring together the continental federations and the national associations of 93 countries.

As the Premier federation of People management Associations, we are a globally recognized authority to support the people management profession throughout the world.

Our mission is at the service of citizens, organizations and communities around the world, ensuring the relevance, reputation and value of the global Human Resources profession.

The WORLD HR CONGRESS 2020-COLOMBO will be a special moment for us to be sharing this mission in a beautiful country like Sri Lanka.

Thank you so much for your presence!

Leyla Nascimento
President of WFPMA
