“Building next generation competency development, succession planning and talent management programs: Attract, develop, retain and engage high potentials & talented people during tough times”

Human Capital & Talent Management for Public Sectors

19 – 22 May 2014, Cape Town


The public sector faces more than just politics when it comes to succession planning; it also faces budget cuts and hiring freezes. The outlook for human capital in the public sectors is bleak: insufficient skills in the public sector; streamlining Government operations; non-integration and inefficiency in technology used throughout Government departments, fraud and corruption and the list goes on. Many public entities battle with the absence of efficient and effective HR delivery and practices in the business.

Talent development has been a key to the success of the Public Service, especially when it comes to filling of key positions at the public sector leadership levels. The future is one where we will have to learn to do much more with fewer people, and in less time. It will be harder to attract, skill, engage and retain the people we want.

This course is designed to equip you to navigate the difficult times ahead and to avoid a human capital crisis in your organisation. It will help you to use proven strategies to fast-track the learning of your people – saving time and money. It will show how to extract more value from existing employees by helping them to be more innovative and resourceful. It will help you to identify and effectively address upcoming human capital problems and it will provide you with leading-edge models and tools to be a leader in people management practices.

This practical, hands-on course will have you excited by the new possibilities to drive performance in your organisation. The examples given are proven winners and the materials provide for easy adaptation to your business. Within 4 days of completing the course you can be forging positive change for your organisation and your people.
