About the Future of HR Summit
12 – 13 June 2019 | Johannesburg | South Africa
The Future of HR Summit has quickly built up credibility as southern Africa’s premier platform for articulating the fundamentals of human capital management at all levels, while unpacking the latest implications of digital disruption on the industry. It scrutinises the changing job descriptions of HR professionals and showcases the industry’s ongoing, innovation-led evolution. But what makes it unique?
After all, a lot of global HR conferences talk about the future of HR. The robots are coming, they warn us. Virtual reality is the new reality. Everything online. Chat bots. Data is going to be …well …big. It’s fascinating if frustrating for the average HR practitioner, who comes away with little clarity on how to get to this future; having spent X in company funds to be at the event. You return to your desk, trying to catch up on the 3 days of work missed and no less perplexed by it all; still sifting through traditional printed CVs and entering names on Excel sheets, while waiting for the rap of aluminium knuckles on the door.
Southern Africa’s 5th annual Future of HR Summit will put the far future aside and recalibrate focus onto the definite near future: what you as a CEO, MD, HR Director or Manager can start doing now, or at least just now, to move towards your company’s digitally-driven future. From 12 – 13 June 2019, we will bring to the Summit relevant industry experts and solution providers to show you what your next step is in terms of automated recruitment, online employee engagement, scalable e-learning, data analytics, wellness programmes and other key aspects of HR.
Get effective solutions to your challenges, experience a new feeling – this make sense! – and come away with concrete actions you can take during the next 12-18 months.
