Diversified financial services business Sanlam Corporate is sponsoring the HR & Technology Award.
Portia Mogale, human capital executive for Sanlam Corporate, believes in recognising and celebrating excellence in HR, a field, she says, that is integral to fostering confidence, security, growth and exceptional experiences in the workplace.
This is part reason the firm has decided to sponsor the HR & Technology Award at the CHRO Awards 2023. “Our commitment to partnering with corporates and their employees in delivering effective employee benefits, investment, and health care solutions aligns perfectly with the ethos of the CHRO Awards, which honour those who contribute significantly to their organisation’s success, particularly in developing a sustainable and confident workforce,” says Portia.
She adds that the keen interest in HR and technology is based on the organisation’s belief that digital enablement and automation provides opportunities for better processes and ways of work, allowing people to focus on solving strategic problems without being bogged down by repetitive processes.
“The future of employee benefits solutions is intrinsically linked to technological advancement and HR excellence. At Sanlam Corporate we are big proponents of the value that technology and digitisation can bring. We recognise that the modern workplace thrives on innovation. This is why we continually aim to pioneer inclusive financial confidence, ensuring that both employers and employees benefit from streamlined, secure, and advanced HR and technology solutions. Through the use of technology employers can streamline and minimise the administrative burdens inherent in delivering employee benefits and leads to an enhanced employee experience.”
Speaking on the importance of collaboration with CHRO South Africa, Portia noted that it underscores the organisation’s commitment to being an industry leader in providing holistic employee benefits solutions.
“The partnership also aligns with our vision of providing inclusive financial confidence and security for organisations and their people, in South Africa and beyond.”
The annual CHRO Awards will be held on 14 November at the Polo Room in Inanda, Johannesburg, where CHROs of listed companies, large corporations and state-owned entities will be recognised for their work in the industry. Billed as the Oscars of HR, the ceremony will host top CHROs, VIPs and business partners for an exquisite evening of networking, entertainment and fine cuisine.
