Re-imagining HR

Online Conference

Early bird special till 11 December 2020

HR has been one of the most critical functions over the last 8+ months, and the role and value of the HR function and leader can no longer be denied. HR has been a strategic function and key enabler of business continuity. Not only does the HR Leader play a critical role in helping organisations prepare for the future, BUT also to lead the organisation there. Today’s HR Leader needs to be an organisation leader and not merely an HR leader. Are you as an HR leader preparing for a continued uncertain future?

Join us for two days where we will be exploring the latest thinking and business strategies to drive innovation and organisational 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.
