For a single institutional subscription, all the members of the HR function within the institution are able to enjoy the following benefits:
The UHR web site forms a useful resource for members, giving up to date information about events and activities affecting UHR members, and enabling members to share information and access documents. To gain access to the members’ pages, you can register below.
Members of the HR team in your institution are able, individually, to join the UHR discussion boards, the current vehicle for much of the discussion and information exchange among members. Topics range from the strategic to the prosaic and discussion is often lively. There is also a separate discussion board for HR Directors. These discussion boards are part of the website and you login using your UHR website account.
The UHR CPD programme provides development opportunities for all HR staff from administrators through to directors. We work continually to make sure our CPD offer is relevant and professionally supportive for the wide breadth of our members - it's a live and adaptive response to your needs so please visit the CPD section of the website.
UHR’s annual conference, held in May, is our biggest event and presents a great opportunity to gain professional updating and learn from and network with colleagues, attracting some 250 UK, Ireland and overseas delegates. The members delegate rate is significantly less than for non-members (substantially subsidised, thanks to the sponsorship our conference attracts). Information is available on the UHR web site, through which bookings may also be made nearer the time.
As an HR Director or equivalent, you will be able to attend the regular UHR group meetings organised for your area. You may want to contact the Chair of your group to ensure that they include you on mailings about group meetings. You can find the current Chairs, who each have a seat on the UHR Executive on the Groups and Regions page. Most regions also run groups for Deputy Directors, or for HR B practitioners, and all have an Engagement and Wellbeing special interest network. Some regions have other special interest groups for e.g. reward and international practice.
UHR operates a mentoring framework for HR staff, details of which are available from the CPD Manager. You can find out more on the mentoring pages.
UHR, as a body able to speak collectively for the personnel professionals in Higher Education, also maintains senior level contacts with a range of agencies, such as:
For example, we work with other sector bodies to respond to opportunities and challenges such as government consultations and inquiries, regulatory changes and UK wide events e.g. Brexit.
Beyond the UK, UHR also maintains an active link with CUPA-HR in North America and with the Association of Commonwealth Universities HR Network.
The team at Cari Wellbeing provide an online wellbeing consultation and confidential personalised wellbeing support to UHR members. An initial survey and the team's entire approach is based around the neuroscience of wellbeing, and depending on your needs can include workshops, one-to-one consultation, brain exercises and more. Visit the Cari website to take advantage of a free initial consultation and to learn more.
Since August 2020, the annual subscription rates have been as follows (per annum, excluding VAT):
