Pre-Conference Workshop | Sponsors and Exhibitors

Pre-Conference Workshop

HR Transformation: What would your HR Department look like if it was run like a customer-centric business?

26 June 2019 (one-day workshop)

In the knowledge and gigabyte economy – companies with the best talent win. Despite this well-known fact, and the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity facing companies in a highly competitive economic environment, many HR functions are structured and operate as bureaus with a monopoly on internal services rendered. How can HR transform itself away from being a comfortable “internal service provider” and a “grudge purchase” towards offering leading edge, innovative products and services for their unique customers?


  • What can HR learn from the very businesses they serve on how to unlock value for their “customers”?
  • Which well-established business concepts are HR overlooking? Agile? Lean? Continuous improvement?
  • How can HR better understand the needs of their customers (and do they even know who their customers really are)?
  • What does the HR/Talent Value Chain and Operating Models look like for the modern HR organisation?
  • How can HR functions begin transforming themselves towards innovation and customer excellence?
  • What are the individual competencies required to run HR as a business and not a bureau?

SETA grants and accreditation requirements
Many of our delegates enquire about the accreditation of our events. There is a misconception that organisations qualify for SETA grants only for accredited programmes. This is not correct. The payment of SETA grants is regulated by the Government Gazette, no. 9867, Vol. 570, 3 December 2012, no. 35940. These Regulations clearly state that the SETAs “must allocate a mandatory grant to a levy paying employer” that has submitted a WSP and ATR by the regulated date, has provided all the information required in the regulated template, and is up to date with skills levy payments. Furthermore, the template in the Regulations (Section C: Skills Development) allows employers to include ALL planned training in the report; not only accredited programmes.
