History and Development of the Association




The image of three people standing together with their heads pointing upwards forms an ancient Chinese character meaning PEOPLE. The logo of the Chinese Human Resource Management Association (CHRMA) is a depiction of this character, which also makes references to unity is strength and more people make work easier. Since its establishment, the CHRMA has enjoyed a longstanding reputation as the HRM professionals within Taiwan and has aimed to promote HR management and development as the ultimate goal of an organization.



In 1982, a group of human resource professionals in Taiwan joined forces with the management association of the ROC. They went on to form the HR Management & Development Commission (HRMDC), which signaled the emergence of an elite circle of HR professionals.


The CHRMA (the Association) was established in January 1992 as a nationwide organization composed primarily of HR professionals. The CHRMA is the most representative and the largest leading organization in the field of human resources in Taiwan. The Association now has about 2000 members, 70% from domestic companies and 30% from multinational corporations.
