Human Resources Committee
7 Rano Nurmuratova

In the recent years we feel more and more that the demand for human capital in organizations is increasing. Many business owners and CEOs are expressing concern in how to best attract, manage, and retain the talents of high potential employees. Companies are increasingly indicating the need for employees with these qualities in order to meet objectives and enhance business performance.
Human Resources is one of the essential business functions responsible for developing so-called “People Strategy” which is required to be a global leader and attractive business partner in the volatile business climate of the 21st century.
The last 5-7 years in Uzbekistan we have observed that the perception of the role of Human Resources is beginning to change. There are, however, many areas which remain for development and improvement. There is a tendency towards effective HRM, but not many companies or HR teams understand that their responsibilities extend beyond the hiring and firing of employees. Unfortunately, the real tendency to increase the HR role in organizations has been rather slow to occur.
This is why the AmCham Uzbekistan Human Resources Committee has been established. The goal of the committee is to help members get better acquainted with the latest global Human Resources trends and news. AmCham wants members to be a part of this conversation.
The mission and goals of the HR Committee are as follows:
∙ The Human Resource Committee provides analysis and updates on HR trends, labor, employee relations, compensation, and benefits;
∙ The committee promotes understanding of labor practices and policies acting as a forum for transferring information between member companies and Uzbek authorities.
The Committee’s main activities shall include:
∙ Informing members’ HR departments of new trends in human resources management;
∙ To share and establish best HR practices in Uzbekistan via compilation, and reporting about Compensation & Benefits, Talent management, and the digitalization of other HR priority areas;
∙ To keep members updated on the latest developments in government regulations and policies as they relate to labor practices;
∙ To add value by being an active resource center in HR related subjects.
