The past three years have profoundly tested the HR profession on various fronts. The aftermath of COVID-19 introduced new work modalities and organisational structures, notably hybrid and remote arrangements. Additionally, challenges such as power cuts, high inflation, and slow economic growth have necessitated enhancements in productivity, innovative service delivery, and adherence to tight budgets.

One thing is clear: the future is unpredictable. Yet, 2024 will undoubtedly bring its unique set of challenges. Questions arise: How will the general election influence dynamics? What impact will advancements in AI have on the workplace? How will global geopolitical events affect South Africa? And, crucially, how competitive will the talent
market become?

This seminar addresses these uncertainties by exploring various future scenarios and fostering conversations about the impending years. Such proactive discussions are key in equipping HR practitioners with the strategic tools and insights needed to navigate 2024 successfully.

Join us for a half-day, online event that delves into the upcoming challenges and priorities for HR and the labour market in 2024. This seminar will feature leading HR professionals and thought leaders who will provide valuable guidance on planning and executing strategies for success in the coming year.
