Director Wendy Spalding says they couldn't pass up on the opportunity to celebrate HR excellence.
Executive Search and Talent Advisory firm Tuesday Consulting was the first to secure seats at the CHRO Awards, which will be held at Summer Place in Hyde Park, Johannesburg on 27 November 2019. As proponents of progressive people practices, Tuesday Consulting director and shareholder Wendy Spalding says they couldn’t pass up on the chance to support and celebrate the county’s crème de la crème of people practitioners.
“As passionate and driven entrepreneurs, our highly regarded team of professionals understand that skilled and talented people are essential to an organisation’s success,” says Wendy, whose HR career spans more than 25 years.
Tuesday Consulting is also one of the co-founding members of the South African 30% Club, an organisation committed to achieving better gender balance throughout corporate South Africa.
Wendy is joined at the CHRO event by her esteemed colleagues. Professor Shirley Zinn is a non-executive director, author, lecturer, and a highly regarded HR executive who has led the people agenda for multinationals such as Woolworths and Nedbank. She also holds two Masters Degrees and a PhD from Harvard. Tsholofelo Nketane is an executive search director with deep expertise in the education and public sectors. She currently leads Tuesday Consulting’s non-executive practice. And, Gugu Khazi is an author, career coach and speaker on personal career management and leadership with over 20 years’ experience working in multinational corporations as a senior HR leader. Khazi heads up the Talent Management Advisory within Tuesday Consulting.
The team's deep knowledge, experience and vast networks across multiple industries, coupled with a passion for the Human Capital Ecosystem, drives their desire to develop a sought-after culture of South African and ultimately African excellence. Their proactive research-based approach to executive, senior management, and specialist recruitment using qualitative research on external talent pools, informs strategic human resource and business planning processes in capacity and succession planning.
Acutely aware of the skills challenges facing corporate South Africa, they focus on services that are proven to be the most effective in helping companies anticipate and address their skills needs, empowering clients to source the right people for the position, organisation and culture. The people function of an organisation is more critical now than it has ever been. It must be a key strategic partner to the CEO whose success is increasingly dependent on the effectiveness, credibility and influence of their CHRO.
“We live by the ethos of ‘Investing in People’ and are passionate in the belief that people are the greatest assets of any organisation. The list of CHRO Awards nominees comprises business leaders who not only share our sentiment, but are making a meaningful difference to their organisations and communities through people. These awards will shine a light on CHROs who deserve to be recognised for their contribution towards elevating the HR profession.” concludes Wendy.
