 Human Capital & Talent Management
Date: May 18 - 21, 2015
Location: Cape Town

Organized By:
Infocus International Group

Description:  The public sector faces more than just politics when it comes to succession planning; it also faces budget cuts and hiring freezes. The outlook for human capital in the public sectors is bleak: insufficient skills in the public sector; streamlining Government operations; non-integration and inefficiency in technology used throughout Government departments, fraud and corruption and the list goes on. Many public entities battle with the absence of efficient and effective HR delivery and practices in the business.

Talent development has been a key to the success of the Public Service, especially when it comes to filling of key positions at the public sector leadership levels. The future is one where we will have to learn to do much more with fewer people, and in less time. It will be harder to attract skill, engage and retain the people we want.
