Hr Business Partner Conference 2019 • Windhoek

INFORMATION

Two-Day Conference | 24 and 25 July 2019
Hilton Hotel, Windhoek | Namibia


KR in partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers Namibia




Over the years, there has been a great shift in the role(s) of the HR Business Partner (HRBP).

Previously, most HRBP-related responsibilities dealt with administrative or transactional activities, however today, most of this administrative work shifts to the HR service delivery function, leaving the HRBP to focus on strategic initiatives. The modern HR Business Partner must not only serve as a mediator between employees and management, but also ensure strategic and transformational targets are met.

So how can the modern HRBP rise to the challenge? And what crucial skills are required?

The 2019 HR Business Partner Conference will bring together CHROs, line managers, business leaders and senior HRBPs to share key insights on the future of the HR Business Partner role.

As an HRBP do you understand the evolution of HRBP and where it is going? Are you developing the necessary skills and capabilities to become and effective HRBP?

Why you should attend:

  • Discover the role of HRBPs in the new world of work
  • Hear case studies from companies with the best HRBP models
  • Gain insights and examples of improved business results through effective implementation of the HRBP role
  • Learn how to create a meaningful workplace through driving purposeful organisations
  • Discover how to translate your organisation’s strategy into an effective and actionable HR strategy
  • Build a strong and credible relationship with line management after hearing how to be an internal consultant
  • Learn the critical success factors for establishing and keeping employee engagement high in your organisation


Who should attend:

  • HR Business Partners
  • Human Resources Managers
  • HR Executives managing and developing
  • HR Practitioners
  • HR Directors
  • Talent Managers
  • HR Consultants
  • Line Managers (who would like to collaborate better with HR)

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.
