Industrial and workplace relations is a highly complex area, especially following the COVID-19 outbreak. Significant changes have taken place throughout the organisation (ranging from remote and flexible work practices to greater automation and even employee mental health issues). It’s critical for HR and IR/ER professionals to understand the implications of the current environment.
The speakers and topics at our upcoming Industrial Relations Conference have been carefully selected to reflect these new trends in the South African Industrial Relations (IR) landscape. This conference will focus on the changing IR environment: The new realities, challenges and approaches. It will also provide the ideal opportunity for IR and ER practitioners, trade unionists and government officials, HR and labour practitioners, lawyers and business leaders to unpack pertinent issues in the labour market and to participate in discussions to resolve some of the current employment challenges.
