Hedija Begovic Bosnia and Herzegovina

There is no doubt that the effort always pays off in the end! As a participant in the first HR Starter program in Bosnia and Herzegovina, I had the opportunity to meet a large number of HR experts, learn from them, and gain the opportunity for employment. I am very happy that through this program I met the HR team from NLB Bank, Sarajevo who recognized my efforts and abilities and where I became part of the team soon after completing the program and studies.

Lejla Adrovic Montenegro

As a participant in the third generation of HR Starter Montenegro, I gained a lot of new knowledge and skills, learned about new techniques and tools from common practice which I hope to implement in the future. The lecturers were very professional, open to all kinds of cooperation, selflessly sharing knowledge, experience and advice. I am really proud to have been a part of this program that connected me with dear, talented people who were there for a month with the same goal as me.

Lenka Kostovic Serbia

An extraordinary experience that opened the doors of the HR world to me and provided a unique opportunity to learn and discover a wide range of areas that modern HR provides us through the selfless sharing of knowledge and experience of a large number of HR experts. Apart from the great opportunity for learning, team activities and working with a mentor, I was especially fond of colleagues whom I met and with whom I still share my HR experiences.

Milena Vracarevic Serbia

HR Enter is an unforgettable experience for me. Great lecturers who selflessly shared their knowledge and experiences on all HR-related topics as well as the importance of HR for the organization, the knowledge that I needed to master in order to step into the world of HR. In addition to the extensive knowledge I have adopted, what has further complemented this experience for me was a lot of positive energy, a great love for HR, as well as wonderful people I have met. You have all my recommendations!

What do you associate with the term “HR Administration”?   

The first associations are papers, a photocopier, a printer, even a fax machine. A calculator is mandatory! Then folders and binders, stamps and envelopes, personnel, who usually wear glasses and sometimes are in a horrific mood. And for the ultimate: paperwork and data.

If some of these things automatically went through your head when you thought of HR administration, you are not alone. Also, for the most part, you are wrong.
