In its commitment to improve our human resource sector in various organisations, the Fiji Human Resource Institute has launched a new programme to assist our local leaders.

The training programme, launched by the FHRI in collaboration with the Australian Human Resource Institute (AHRI), will consist of two courses:

Leading through Change

Attracting and Retaining Talent

FHRI vice president Ravinesh Krishna said the Institute was not able to bring in overseas trainers on their own into the country hence the collaboration with AHRI.

He added that most members of the institute said their organisations are undergoing changes and they are unable to retain the talent.

Mr Krishna believes this programme can build a bridge for the gap in this situation.

The programme will be held in Nadi on the 11-12th of September and from the 14-15th of September in Suva.

The course is $750 for members and non-members whereby participants will receive workbooks and a certificate.

The programme is not closed to members of the Institute nor human resource fraternity but also open to managers, supervisors and project managers, said Mr Krishna.

This is the first time for FHRI to collaborate with AHRI.



Training conducted by the FHRI with the Fiji Revenue and Customs Services took place on Wednesday.

Thirty-three participants from various private, public sectors and statutory bodies attended the one day workshop.

The participants were trained on the new tax changes as per the 2017-18 National Budget including the fringe benefit tax and withholding tax calculations.

Mr Krishna said a lot of interest was shown but thirty-three were selected.

This is also the first time for FHRI to conduct a training with the Revenue and Customs Service.
