From a thought provoking keynote, insightful sessions, to comedy, the HR Indaba was an impactful conference.
The HR Indaba 2022 was a resounding success, with a huge turnout of HR professionals and business leaders from far and wide. The event kicked off with a gripping keynote address by Barloworld group executive: people and transformation Tantaswa Fubu, who unpacked what the role of a post-Covid-19 leader should look like.
In her speech delivered at a packed main stage, Tantaswa shared how Covid-19 had changed how organisations work and what workplaces currently need to thrive.
Tantaswa also spoke about the type of leadership required to deal with the challenges organisations currently face.
“They require a humble leader. We need to find our humility,” she said. “We need vulnerable leaders, because if you are vulnerable, you are giving permission to the people you lead to be vulnerable too. We need to understand the importance of the role of other stakeholders. We need to take care of the first things first. Let us show the future what is possible. We cannot have leaders who cannot tell stories,” she said.
The HR Indaba was also an opportunity for partners to showcase their products at the colourful stands they had erected. There were also awesome prizes up for grabs, including a trip to Mauritius.
Guests were spoilt for choice as the programme was jam-packed with a series of hot topics that are taking centre stage in the HR space. Some were debating with their colleagues about which sessions to attend, as they found most of them interesting.
Among the well-attended sessions were “The Great Resignation” and “Workplace bullying: spot and eradicate this toxic workplace culture trait”.
Renowned South African comedian Joey Rasdien wrapped up the amazing conference by keeping everyone in stitches with his quirky jokes. This was also the time when guests took time to unwind and enjoy a drink.
