ABOUT THE EVENT

The HR Forum Qatar, held in May 2024, addressed the evolving landscape of HR and its impact on Qatar’s future workforce. Key stakeholders explored critical themes like the Qatarization mandate and how sustainability, AI, and automation are shaping the future of work. Attendees gained valuable insights for navigating this dynamic environment and shaping Qatari HR practices. 

 

Building on this momentum, the 2nd forum on May 13, 2025, promises to be a dynamic platform for HR professionals to refine their strategies and stay ahead of the curve in Qatar’s ever-changing HR landscape. By providing a platform for ongoing collaboration and knowledge exchange, the forum will continue to identify and promote innovative solutions, ultimately contributing to a more resilient and future-proof HR function within Qatari organizations.
