  • Monday | 3rd June 2013 Pre-conference Workshop 9.30 – 16.30 Driving World Class Performance In Organisations – Best Practice HR Rationale: This workshop is for senior HR managers and other key stakeholders to develop an understanding of the potential strategic advantage to be gained through best practice and high performance HR.

Led by: Brad Boyson, Executive Director, SHRM MEA Two of the most commonly used terms or expressions in HR are: Talent & Competencies. Interestingly enough most HR people have different explanations of these two concepts in detail. All professions have a common understanding and applied usage of their discipline’s core terms and applications. This applied workshop starts by ensuring that all participants have a common understanding of the terms and applications relating to talent & competencies. Next, the workshop introduces SHRM’s Elements of Success™ HR competency model including demonstrations of how to apply self-assessment to develop and grow and develop careers. Lastly, each participant is assigned a project to create a real-world competency model based upon other roles within their workplace. Objectives: By the end of this workshop participants will be able to: • Clearly and objectively differentiate ‘talent’ from employee and ‘competencies’ from tasks or routine • Understand the objective, scientific and value added rationale for making this distinction • Learn about the SHRM 2013 Global Competency Model for HR practitioners • Apply the Elements of Success™ model to their human capital inventory and career development goals • Develop a competency model for a real position within their organisation Partner With Us Do you need to raise your company’s profile amongst heads of HR, L&D and organisational development in Africa?
