About Us / Our Impact
As the HR Think Tank continues to strive to improve South Africa’s talent competitiveness through targeted research and interventions in key areas we would like to highlight the progress we have made since 2017.
We have worked towards our goal of improving South Africa’s ranking on the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) by focusing on these five key areas: Business/Government/ Labour Relationships, Education & Development, Gender Equality, Labour Productivity and Vocational/Technical Skills.
We will continue to fulfil our commitment to help shape and influence policy and the broader challenges facing HR and labour. We will carry on, with the support of our members, to pursue the conditions for people to reach their potential in the world of work and ultimately shift our country’s trajectory.
