In keeping with BSHRM’s 2021 theme, his wisdom empowered us to “disrupt our present thinking” and move toward “securing the future” through leveraging technology, understanding our CEOs’ concerns and anticipating industry changes, to list some recommendations.”
The goal of the BSHRM is to consolidate Human Resources Professionals in a national organization with the aim of promoting the development of the human resources nationally and maintaining high standards of professionalism throughout The Bahamas.

Over the course of my career I have had the privilege of seeing how businesses run from a plethora of perspectives and shared conversations with scores of industry leaders and one thing is critically clear, businesses are only as good as team of professionals keeping them running. I commend the BSHRM on the work they do, and events like these which invest in human capital, our most important resource.
