Following the success of the first Future of HR Summit and Awards hosted in 2015, leading online career portal, Careers24, has pledged its support for the 2016 gathering of HR professionals as gold sponsor. The 2016 Future of HR Summit and Awards will be held in Johannesburg on 20 and 21 July.
Careers24 supports second Future of HR Summit and Awards
The summit will address the transformation of the HR function in South African business, forecasting trends, sharing innovative and strategic approaches to overcoming challenges and discussing practical methods of employee engagement, talent acquisition and empowering leadership.
Said Karla Fletcher, Topco’s Director: “As a company that has spent the last 20 years researching and recognising South Africa’s top organisations, the salient outcome is that every top-performing organisation in the private or public sector was underpinned by a strong employee culture.” She adds that the old methods of management and leadership are clearly expiring and only those that embrace this space of rapid transformation and start to understand digital disruption will thrive in turbulent times. “When we developed this product our aim was to find a partner who embraced this new way of thinking, Careers24 was just that, they set out to be relevant in the marketplace. Their contribution will help us to bring about a metamorphosis in this industry.”
Careers24 welcomed the opportunity to participate in the event that will provide leaders and organisations with a distinct competitive advantage to achieve business goals that will facilitate economic growth while keeping people at the forefront of business.
“We are invested in the growth of both the HR industry and in empowering jobseekers. Last year we received very good feedback from recruiters who attended the summit and we look forward to being a valuable partner again for this event which provides a platform for the discussion and understanding of industry challenges as well as solutions,” said Marc Privett, General Manager of Careers24. Privett will be speaking at the two-day summit again and will focus on employer branding which has become a hot topic in terms of attracting and retaining talent.
