Building human capital in SA

Published: 12-OCT-05

Building Human Capital: South African Perspectives is aimed at: South African managers seeking practical solutions to sometimes uniquely South African challenges in people management and human resources strategy.

It contains the view of South African line managers, human resources managers, academics, consultants and practitioners together with some real-life case studies of how our own South African companies have tackled some of the tough challenges.

It will provide new insights, inspiration and practical tools to improve the ability to grow the human capital that organisations need to succeed in the 21st century.

The editors have chosen five major themes for this book.

  • A discussion about the nature of landscape within which HR needs to position itself, including some interviews with a number of leading thinkers on the subject.
  • The key issue of how to measure the value of HR is explored.
  • Then key issues on the HR agenda are addressed.
  • A number of interesting case studies of HR in action.
  • And the future of the HR function as a profession in South Africa is put under the spotlight.
  • Knowledge Resources and the editors, would like to thank all the contributors for the effort they have put into their articles. They have created a great platform for further dialogue to flow from this book.

    It is the intention of the editors to continue the network and grow the conversation in a variety of different forums over time.
