With talent sourcing, engagement and selection being at the top of the Talent Agenda, the Recruiting Excellence for Africa Conference brings together HR and business leaders from across Africa to discuss Human Capital Excellence.
Top HR and business leaders will gather at the “Recruiting Excellence for Africa” Conference, the inaugural Talent Agenda Series event in Johannesburg this coming November, to discuss ways of optimising sourcing, engaging and selecting the best local, regional and international talent for Africa.
The Recruiting Excellence for Africa Conference will see leading HRDs and senior decision makers come together to create a talent agenda which supports strategic objectives, and with over 30 top employer brands confirmed so far from across the continent, the conference looks set to pave the way for new recruitment strategies and talent engagement plans for organisational and business growth.
With keynote speakers including Ndaba Ntsele from Pamodzi Group, Tavaziva Madzinga from Old Mutual and John Saker from KPMG, the one-day conference programme will be addressing, in the morning session, the significance of social media in sourcing top talent for Africa, how far the employee value proposition can impact the talent agenda acquisition process and whether new threats and new opportunities have created new selection techniques. The second part of the day will focus more specifically on sourcing, engagement and selection responses to the need for high-potential, diverse talent that fits company culture.
The speakers and panellists’ line up includes some of the most senior figures from some of the leading brands in Africa: Citi, Colgate Palmolive, DStv Digital Media, Ericsson, ESKOM, EY, G4S, GSK, Lafarge Nigeria, Maersk Line, MTN Group, Neotel, NMB, PUMA Energy International, Rio Tinto, Samsung Africa, Tiger Brands, Yum! Brands.
