HR forum learning workshop

Organisation of the workplace in the Public Service

Date: 1 Sep 2005 - 2 Sep 2005

Venue: Emporors, Johannesburg


The HR Forum was established in 2001 as part of an initiative to transform the HR landscape in the public service. It was established initially as a partnership with other organizations in the private sector dealing with HR, but has since taken a new life lease of its own.


  • To promote best practices for HR in the public service
  • To encourage debate and discussion on people management issues
  • To provide a platform for learning and networking opportunities for practitioners in the public service
  • To facilitate improved people management/HR practices in the public service

In the past a number of learning sessions on various aspects of HR were held, ranging from ethics, performance based pay, competency assessment, etc. As part of re-launching the Forum, the theme for this learning session is around making the workplace place and attractive for the public servants.

The upcoming learning workshop will examine and interrogate challenges relating to the recruitment and retention of 'scarce' skills, and how best to do proper HR planning, and also taking into the account the challenges posed by the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the public service workplace.

The participants will draw from HR and Corporate Services units/divisions in national and provincial departments.
