TechHR Forum

The TechHR Forum provides companies in the broader technology sector with a forum to discuss industrial relations and human resources issues, receive specialised information and updates relevant to the employment relationships for that sector and network with industry peers. Topics recently covered include work permit changes for non-EU workers, challenges presented by the use of social media in the workplace, managing contractors and third parties, as well as guidance to the upcoming changes to the State pension age, and an overview of the consequences for employers.

In addition to the face-to-face meetings, the Forum also has an extremely active Discussion Forum, where members can (anonymously if they wish) circulate questions & queries among fellow HR professionals on a broad range of topics, for a rapid response from industry peers.

In conjunction with the Ibec Survey Unit, the TechHR Forum feeds into the annual ISA & ICT Ireland Salary Survey that allows member companies to benchmark salaries and conditions across a wide number of categories. The survey is available to all participating organisations.

The Forum has over 250 members.
