Marge Mantjie to speak at HR Indaba Africa


Marge believes talent attraction and retention are among the key challenges facing the profession.

Marge Mantjie, Head of HR at law firm Adams & Adams, has been confirmed as a speaker for the inaugural HR Indaba, which will be taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre on 3 & 4 October 2018. The HR Indaba will be the largest of its kind in South Africa, giving HR professionals an opportunity to learn everything they need to know about the latest HR technology, HR strategy, company culture, labour laws, recruitment, employee engagement and HR leadership. It will also bring together thousands of colleagues, suppliers, platforms, universities, specialists, recruitment agencies, CHROs and thought leaders.

Marge believes that talent retention is one of the major challenges facing HR leaders today, particularly in the legal fraternity, where companies have to compete with international players for what is a limited talent pool. Speaking at the CHRO SA year-end function last year, Marge said that companies had to find creative ways of attracting and retaining talent given that budget cuts for HR portfolios meant executives had to do more with less money.


“Retaining talent is not only about the monetary value that you give your employees. It's also about expanding the value proposition that you offer an individual so we have to be creative about the offerings that we present to candidates, which will also help the firm in terms of differentiating itself from other players the market.”
