Maryland Manufacturing HR Peer Group

Maryland Manufacturing HR Peer Group

Join the HR Peer Group today and become a part of building a stronger and forward-thinking HR Department.

Why join the Manufacturing HR Peer Group?

Maryland MEP launched the HR Manufacturing Peer Group in August 2022 to provide much needed support to HR leaders across the state. Given today’s economic, business and labor challenges, manufacturers are having to manage an exceptional degree of complexity and risk related to managing human resources and all aspects of talent acquisition, development, management, and transition to meet business needs.

The HR Peer Group provides an invaluable opportunity for HR professionals to come together to network, learn, share best practices and problem-solve with each other. The 2023 Peer Group involves eight interactive (virtual) meetings that will focus on both the operational and strategic outlook, building relationships and other workplace news to help you stay ahead.
