BSP Life made a valuable financial contribution to the Fiji Human Resources Institute for the development of human resource practitioners in Fiji yesterday at the BSP Life headquarters in Suva for an upcoming seminar.

The life insurance company presented $5000 to FHRI president Balbeer Singh.

Mr Singh said the contribution would be used to fund the Asia-Pacific Federation of Human Resources management board meeting next month at Sofitel in Nadi.

Mr Singh said the one-day board meeting was for executives and board members of the organisation.

"BSP Life has exclusively sponsored this particular seminar. This is great for us. We are always trying to provide best practices in organisations," he said.

"The institute is funded by membership fees of $150 per annum.

"The institute always lacked financial assistance."

BSP Life managing director Malakai Naiyaga said they were pleased with the partnership and the role it played in creating awareness about human resources within an organisation.

"Human resource plays a very important part in an organisation and is becoming the most critical factor for a successful organisation," he said.
