HR forum

Repositioning of human resources within the Public Service - Collaborating, connecting, co-ordinating for compliance

Date: 21 Jun 2007

Venue: Gallagher Estatem, Midrand


Pursuant to previous sessions held since 2005, the HR Forum meetings have been established to serve as a dedicated avenue for regular interaction and co-ordination between the Branch: Human Resource Management and Development in the DPSA and national departments and provincial administrations. The aim of the Human Resource Forum is to-

  • discuss/interrogate new policy initiatives by the DPSA; the main reason being that the DPSA is currently involved in a number of new policy initiatives such as strengthening the human resource management function, the review of the SMS and the Single Public Service that should be shared with departments;
  • continuously support and build capacity of human resource managers through the sharing of information and best practice models as well as learning networks to improve service delivery;
  • capacitate human resource managers on current human resource developments that impact on service delivery in the Public Service; and
  • ensure that human resource managers in the Public Service have a complete understanding of Public Service human resource policies and are able to translate them into implementable departmental programmes.

The Branch: Human Resource Management and Development has designed a steering committee system to pursue the aforementioned aims in a more structured manner. The meeting of 21 June 2007 dealt inter alia with the intended system.

ProgrammeProgramme director: Mr Aziz Jardine (Deutsche Gesellschaft Fuer Technische Zusammenarbeit)
