Sanlam becomes platinum partner for HR Indaba

They believe HR professionals can play a big role in helping people manage financial stress.

Sanlam has signed up as a platinum partner for the HR Indaba, which will take place 14 & 15 October 2020 at the Sandton Convention Centre. Almost 6,000 HR professionals are already registered for Africa’s biggest HR conference, which will give 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.

Speaking ahead of last year’s Indaba, Sanlam Corporate Yolanda Gwili said HR professionals could play a critical role in supporting people in the workplace to live their best lives in the current environment where people are already under a lot of financial stress. 

Said Yolanda: “We have explored this concept at great detail and wish to share our findings on the symptoms, causes and solutions to the pervasive issue of financial stress. A well-constructed employee benefits suite can be the mechanism to address many of the driving factors of financial stress and we wish to engage HR professionals on the key factors required to do so.”

The Sanlam Umbrella Fund is South Africa’s fastest-growing and most-awarded umbrella fund due to the considered blend of technological innovation and a human touch that builds lasting relationships. Last year, it was voted by independent Employee Benefits consultants as the umbrella fund most capable of enabling financial resilience for its members.

“We hope attendees of the HR Indaba will engage with our team to explore why South Africa’s employers are looking to the Sanlam Umbrella Fund to be their preferred partner in enabling the financial resilience and prosperity for their employees,” said Yolanda.

Whether you are starting out or an experienced HR professional, looking to skill-up or learn from the lived experiences of leading HR specialists in South Africa, or simply to network with your peers, you’ll find exactly what you need at HR Indaba Africa.
