    Celebrating excellence in HR: Topco Media announces winners of the Future of HR Awards 2023

    Celebrating excellence in HR: Topco Media announces winners of the Future of HR Awards 2023

    In his opening address, Ralf Fletcher, CEO of Topco Media emphasised the transformative role of HR in shaping the future of work. He stated: “It's the people’s practices that allowed organisations to attract and retain the talent that achieved these results.” Reflecting on the conference, Fletcher highlighted the global competition for highly skilled talent and the need to showcase and celebrate African talent in the face of evolving challenges.

    Cecilia Albertyn, VP: Membership & International Networks at the British Chamber of Business in Southern Africa and esteemed judge, shared valuable insights into the diverse backgrounds and journeys of the nominees. She encouraged all HR professionals to embrace discomfort for growth, stating: “There is no growth or fulfillment without hardship. If you stay in the shallows and in the comfort zone, you cannot get there.”

    The keynote speaker, Nene Molefi, CEO of Mandate Molefi, delivered a powerful address on sustained behaviour change, the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve, and the importance of addressing difficult conversations in organisations. She noted: “In order for us to make a sustained behaviour change, there needs to be a belief that there is a problem to be solved, a challenge, or a growth opportunity. Whether at home or at work, what you resist persists.” Molefi urged all HR professionals not to postpone challenging conversations, emphasising the necessity of addressing issues head-on to create a robust and engaging workplace. “Whatever your pain point is, whether it's gender-based violence or any issue when you identify that pain point, don't postpone it, don't avoid it. It comes back to haunt.”

    Topco Media extends heartfelt gratitude to the esteemed judges for their time and contribution to the Future of HR Awards 2023, including:

    • Vino Govender, Managing Director of LA Consulting Engineers (Pty) Ltd
    • Maria Combrink, Deputy Chair WIMSA
