World Federation of People Management Associations
Through the EAPM, DGFP is also a member of the World Federation of People Management Associations (WFPMA). The WFPMA is a global network of HR professionals. It was founded in 1976 to aid the development and improve the effectiveness of professional people management all over the world. Its members are predominantly the continental federations in North and South America, South Africa, Europe and Asia/Pacific. These are made up of more than 90 national human resource associations representing over 600.000 HR professionals.
The WFPMA facilitates global communications and information exchange through the quarterly newsletter Worldlink with a specific continental focus of each edition and a biennial World Congress. The last World Congress was held in Istanbul, Turkey, from 19th-21st October 2016 with more than 2.500 participants.

Through its membership in international networks, the DGFP has established strong partnerships with HR professionals and experts worldwide. For years, we have been active in international HR meetings to exchange multicultural perspectives and experiences. As such, we are in a great position to help our members establish contacts in numerous countries outside of Germany.
