The Kent Human Resources Network

Supporting the HR community

The Kent HR Network is an initiative focused on facilitating knowledge exchange between the academic community at the University of Kent and HR professionals, both locally and nationally. Through our annual conference, HR breakfasts, networking events and online content, you will gain access to the latest research in the field of HR and insights into strategies for the deployment of knowledge into your organisation.

The Network is kindly sponsored by Ciphr, specialist provider of SaaS HR, payroll, recruitment and learning software through their HCM platform, Ciphr Connect.
