Our Mission

MERIT is a unique gathering of the most prominent international Business Schools and Human Resources Directors of companies from different industries to share insights, challenges and success stories in the corporate learning and people development realm.

Our mission is to bring knowledge from business and educational leaders in order to empower individuals and organisations to develop their human capital and achieve their strategic objectives.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, HR leaders are at the forefront of ensuring safety and care for their organisations’ teams, swift transition to remote work, and human touch and strategic support in these turbulent times. This is a period of intensive learning and upskilling for all – leaders and employees.

MERIT continues to connect the brightest minds and thought leaders of business and executive education, HR, and L&D to share solutions and lessons learnt while the world is getting to a new normal.
