The Organisation was launched in 1980 under the name Jamaica Association of Training and Development, (JATAD) with the aim to make an impact on the level of human resource development training in Jamaica.
In an effort to broaden the appeal of the Organisation as truly representing the full cadre of HR professionals the association was rebranded and became the Human Resource Management Association of Jamaica, (HRMAJ) in July 2005. The intention was also to collaborate with our CARICOM counterparts (HRMATT & HRMAB).
HRMAJ welcomes the unique talents, contributions and diversity of its members, while seeking to engage their participation in choosing its direction, setting priorities, attracting and securing resources achieving our mission. Our mission as an organization seeks to operate as a vibrant and proactive organization that provides value-added services to our members, partners, associates and the wider community; influencing policy, promoting organizational growth and the development of human capital.
