Human Resources Steering Committee

The Human Resources Steering Committee (HRSC) organizes the Annual Assembly of Human Resources Directors and Managers.

The HRSC also ensures the continuous dialogue between Members through surveys, project groups, exchanges of Human Resources professionals, research and social media activity.


The HRSC consists of 6-8 elected members, half of which are elected at the annual Assembly for a two-year mandate on a rotational basis, and the other half are elected every year. A member can be re-elected twice for a maximum of six years in total. HRSC members need to reflect the geographical and cultural diversity of the EBU.

The HRSC meets twice per year, at the Geneva headquarters or a remote location such as Steering Committee members’ premises or the location of the next annual Assembly.

Through discussions and proposals from its members, HRSC defines the theme and agenda of the next Human Resources Assembly and identifies speakers.

The HRSC takes its decisions by simple majority, a quorum being set at 50% participation. In the case of parity, the Chairperson’s vote prevails.
