NAIROBI, September 8, 2015 – The role of human resources has evolved dramatically over the years and transformed into one of a valuable business partner. There has also been a recent shift towards “talent management” as attracting top talent has become a serious competitive matter demanding attention at the top levels of an organisation.
Understanding the importance of this transformation and the role of talent management in it, Fleming Europe has decided to organise the HR Winners Africa Conference in Nairobi, Kenya.
With the aim to make Africa a better place to work, we’ve gathered 20+ top level HR professionals from companies such as The Coca-Cola Company, Unilever, General Electric, Airtel Africa, East African Breweries Limited, and many others.
Speakers from the Top Employers and the Best Companies to Work For will share their ‘keys to success’ in a focused ‘Think-Tank’ session. They will reveal their secrets on building and maintaining their unique organisational culture. Attendees will discuss the attitudes winners have towards employee communications as well as the opportunities winners offer for their employees to develop professionally and grow within a company, impacting the company’s brand in terms of attraction, long-term employee engagement and retention of talent.
Over the two days, delegates will explore four concepts for becoming an HR winner – Retention & Engagement ranking as the most urgent trend to address in East Africa; Reskilling HR from a collector of data about employers to a strategic partner and member of the board; Talent Acquisition: showing how to attract talent; and Leadership in the form of successful examples on how a coaching culture can help to develop leaders.
Members of The Institute of Human Resource Management (IHRM) who attend the conference will earn 2 CPD points.
With talent management being a key element for business success in the current economy, the HR Winners Africa Conference will be a great opportunity to network, exchange ideas and take a closer look at current HR challenges.
