Why have you signed up as a partner for the HR Indaba and why should attendees look forward to seeing you at the event?

The HR Indaba provides an excellent opportunity for LexisNexis to engage with its existing clients, as well as other leading professionals in the HR space, where we’re able to provide insight into current market advances, as well as what to expect in the future

What would you say is the most pressing issue facing the HR profession at the moment?

Without a doubt the rise in CV fraud and misrepresentation of qualifications in all branches of society, as we’ve seen with recent high profile incidents in government. This is, however, not limited to government and it’s important for all organisations to make sure they protect themselves from these types of incidents.
