Vision & Mission

GCHRA's Purpose and Objective

Since its beginning in 1935, the Greater Cincinnati Human Resources Association (GCHRA) has developed into a progressive and professional association which attracts Greater Cincinnati’s top Human Resource practitioners into its membership.

Human Resource professionals serve their employers and the business community in many roles, from benefits and employment law expertise to leading innovation and motivation. Ultimately, we are the leaders of any company’s most important resource, human capital.

Because of this complex role, we need as many of our own resources and support as possible. GCHRA’s purpose is to be that resource and channel of support. We strive to continue to advance the Human Resource profession through sharing experience and knowledge.
