HR Partnership Committee

HR Partnership Committee

In 2009, the Hamilton Port Authority established the HR Partnership Committee to promote the port as a whole and work together to create better solutions than would be achieved alone. Acting as a resource to each other, the committee addresses a variety of topics including;

  • Training & Development
  • Health & Safety
  • Compensation & Benefits
  • Corporate Initiatives
  • Recruitment & Retention
  • Policies & Procedures

In addition, the committee provides the opportunity to brainstorm, problem solve, share best practices, discuss hot topics & trend, and form network connections within the Port community.

The committee meets on a quarterly basis with members holding a variety of roles.  Some organizations have a designated HR individual and in some organizations, the HR role falls under the responsibility of an operations role – members fall in both categories.  Each meeting is hosted by a different organization with a tour of the facility provided at the conclusion of the business portion of the meeting if appropriate.

Currently the committee consists of participants from the following organizations:
Bermingham, Biox, Bitumar, Bunge, Carego, Fairmont Minerals, Federal Marine Terminals, Hamilton Port Authority, Heddle Marine, McKeil Marine, Mana Steel, Richardson, Ruetgers, Westway and Vopak

We welcome new members.  If you would like more information regarding the Committee, or if you are interested in attending an upcoming meeting, please contact:
