Emma was HR Director with companies that made more money than some countries, companies that beefed up then slashed their workforces in cycles as certain as the tides. She worked with some great individual talent, but always found specialist gaps in the corporate HR teams she led, which she had to plug with expensive consultant resources provided by big brands. As an HR Director, Emma knew there had to be a better way for her to access the specialist HR expertise she needed, at real market prices. As an ex-consultant herself, she knew as well that there’s no shortage of specialised talent globally. A way to bring those project opportunities closer to where the people are would be a winning formula. Emma set her mind to find this solution and those who know Emma know that Emma does what Emma says she will do. Combined with her belief that the new workforce would be based on an on-demand model, when people would decide when, where and for how much they worked, she created One Circle to enable direct relationships between HR professionals and the corporate leaders in need of their skills by leveraging technology and cutting out the middle man. Today, Emma is based in Johannesburg with her family as she launches One Circle in 2020, to assist businesses grow in a smart way through providing them with direct access to global consultants, on-demand and at a fair market price.

This she does through connecting Talent strategy to business strategy, Workforce planning, succession planning, leadership development, as well as career management.

    • Performance management
  • What is it about the actual work experience that creates a great employee experience?

    • Strengths-based leadership
    • An inspiring vision, values and organisational culture
    • Creating a sense of meaning and purpose at work
    • Clarity of roles and expectations: do employees know what is expected of them?

  • Leadership practices and processes that contribute to employee experience
  • • The leader as coach
    • Setting people up for success

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.
