The Zambia Institute of Personnel Management (ZIPM), the fore runner of the Zambia Institute of Human Resource Management was established on 4th December 1967 under the companies Ordinance as an independent non-political and non-profit distributing organization. For thirty years, the former Zambia Institute of Personnel Management was not established under an Act of Parliament and this affected the standards of the institute as a professional body.
However, on 18th March 1997, the Zambia Institute of Human Resource Management Bill was presented to Parliament by the then Minister of Labour and Social Security and subsequently assented by the Republican President as the Zambia Institute of Human Resources Management Act No. 11 of 1997.
 
On 26th September 1997, the Zambia Institute of Human Resources Management was officially launched at Andrews Motel, Lusaka with Mr. Humphrey I. Mwanza as first President of the ZIHRM from 1997-2000 [1st and 2nd Council].
The Government's issuance of Statutory Instrument (SI) or Government Order No. 114 of 1997, by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security on 3rd October 1997 effectively brought the operations of the Institute into a professional body.

The Institute's aim is to promote the highest professional standards of Human Resources Management and development practice in every sector of the economy both at organizational and personnel level. The Institute is the central national source for information on labour management including education, training and continous professional development for those members who may not meet the set minimum qualifications provided in the Act.

The 3rd and 4th Council served from 2001 - 2005 wit Mr. Masautso Nyanthando as 2nd President of the Zambia Institute of Human Resource Management followed by the immediate past council which held the 5th and 6th Council from 2006 - 2009. Below is the composition list of the Immediate Past Council.
