Event Information
Belinda Boxall: +27 11 771 4318

As we face the fourth industry revolution - HR and business leaders are compelled to rewrite the rules to how they organise, recruit, develop, manage and engage with the 21st century workforce. This revolutionary workforce is more digital, more global, more diverse, automation-savvy and social media proficient driving evolving work expectations, needs and demands

To remain relevant organisations of the future have to adapt, change and build new business platforms of engagement that are continuously evolving  at a fast pace. The importance of this change is lacking in the board rooms of South African companies and many companies lack the culture and tools they need to:

  • Engage employees relevantly
  • Redesign their organisational structures and networks to accommodate flexibility and mobility
  • Upskill their workforce and attract relevant competencies to match this changing world
  • Rethink their leadership model to include the concepts of innovation, growth, inclusion, teamwork and collaboration


    • Employee engagement
    • Diversity management and leadership
    • Talent retention and recruitment
    • Performance Management
    • Local and international HR trends
    • Work spaces of the future
    • Digital technology, new ways of engaging and doing business

    • Managing Millenials

    • Is HR redundant

    • Minimum wage and gender pay

    • Impact on the work force and the role of HR
    • Whistle blowing
    • Community pressure and social unrest/activism and managing stakeholders/social license/social labour plans

HR leaders need to drive these new technologies, business platforms and ways of working – enabling agility through constant reinvention impacting on business results and employee experience.

How ready is your organisation? And how ready are you as a business leader to drive this?
