HR Forum

Leading the Way on People & Talent

Whether based in Southampton or Surrey, Bournemouth or Basingstoke, Portsmouth or Poole, the fact of the matter is that our businesses today are competing directly or indirectly in the global economy.

Gold Sponsor of the HR Forum




To make sure the Business South region and the companies based in it are best placed to secure competitive advantage through people, Business South has established a Human Resources Forum. It pulls together Human Resource professionals, academics and business people interested in the people agenda, with a view to driving change in the Region.

Four Action Groups focus on the following areas:

  • Knowledge share
  • Corporate Responsibility
  • Employment and Competence
  • Great Places to Work

The chairperson of the HR Forum is Geoff Glover. Geoff enjoyed a long Human Resources career with Ford Motor Company and also held 3 global Vice President HR positions with Volvo Car Corporation, based in Sweden, before returning to Hampshire two years ago.

Barney Ely“We have been keen supporters of Business South for several years and in particular we value the connections we have made as a result of our involvement with the HR Forum.

“We are leading the talent agenda in the south (as a result of our regular HR seminars) and our annual HR conference attracts world class thought leaders to speak to a capacity audience

“Year on year the benefits are clear to us - for connectivity and network, there is no better,” said Barney Ely, Director Hays Specialist Recruitment based in Guildford.
