On April 24 the AmCham HR committee held its extraordinary event marking the end of the four-year committee chairmanship of Mr. Zsolt Fehér.

As Dr. Farkas Bársony, President of AmCham Hungary said in his welcome note "Today marks a bittersweet occasion, as we say farewell to Mr. Zsolt Fehér, who brought a fresh perspective to the chamber and championed a great number of meaningful projects and programs, targeted at elevating the HR agenda, while also dealing with where this profession is headed. At the same time we open the door to new beginnings as the application is now open for the chairmanship of the committee."

In his keynote remarks Zsolt talked about "The good, the bad and the ugly: Future of HR”, where he pinpointed 10 areas where decisions should be backed by real science and ROI, not just HR trends.

A roundtable discussion followed up the discussion on whether we can tell measurable and trendy solutions apart, where the following guests talked about data, processes, people managament and a lot more:

  • Daniel K Johansson, Happy at Work
  • István Martis, CEO, Profession.hu
  • Mirtill Megyeri, co-founder, Zyntern
  • Gábor Bonyhádi, CMO, Codecool

The event closed with a networking reception on the gorgeuos rooftop of the Aria Hotel.

We are grateful to Mr. Fehér for his tremendous contributions to the HR agenda of AmCham in the past several years, and especially as chairman since 2015. Many of our members attended these successful events initiated by the committee – the HR Dream Days, HR Academy series or the thematic HR roundtables. It is good to see that a strong community was built, while there was a strong focus on professional development. We wish Zsolt good luck in the future!
