Our Heritage: How it all Started

A virtual WhatsApp Group “was borne out of a passion to create an enabling learning and capacity building platform to equip each human resource professional with the knowledge, skills, resources and support system to thrive and excel in the 21st Century Workplace.

We take the learning and capacity building of our members very seriously. That is our DNA.

Our Evolution: How We Have Grown & Developed

The Group started on October 24, 2017 as the HR Hub with seven (7) charter members. The name HR Hub was inspired by Depeju Makinde. She coined the name HR Hub; a hub meaning a place of incubation.

The Group evolved from being a WhatsApp Group to a Registered Association with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) of Nigeria. The Association was formally registered as the Association of Elite Human Resource Professionals on September 19, 2018.
