PUP's College of Business Administration hosts its 4th Annual HR Convention on March 3-5

MANILA, Philippines — ASEAN 2015 is almost upon us, and its effect on every major industry will be tremendous.

Companies have to start thinking “global.” Executives need to prepare their employees now, if they haven’t started doing so.

How should human resource (HR) departments develop their hiring and training strategies to increase competency – not just in the region but around the world?

To address these concerns, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines’ College of Business Administration, Department of Management will host the 4th Annual HR Students Convention (HRSC) from March 3 to 5 at PUP’s Bulwagang Balagtas.
