IATA Human Capital Network

Senior aviation human resources executives have historically had few opportunities to meet and discuss these common challenges they face in meeting the unique people requirements found in commercial aviation.  IATA believes that sharing best practices in human capital management and development is useful to those who lead HR and Training operations in airlines and related organizations around the globe. 

To address this need, IATA has established the IATA Human Capital Network. 

Our purpose

The primary role is to facilitate exchange of best practices and information with particular focus on talent management, leadership development and learning.  It also monitors trends and developments which may impact on people management of airlines as well as building interest in careers in air transport to ensure an adequate supply of future professionals to support airline industry needs.

IATA World People Symposium

Since 2011, IATA has organized an annual event on human resources issues. Originally named the Global Aviation Human Capital Summit, it is now known as the IATA World People Symposium. The event convenes heads of human capital/training and development from IATA airlines as well as non-IATA airlines, Civil Aviation Authorities, airports and air navigation service providers. This People Symposium provides an opportunity for face-to-face meetings of the IATA Human Capital Network.

How to join

Participation is open to the global heads of Human Capital for all IATA airlines as well as for non-IATA member airlines by invitation.
