WHAT AN EVENTFUL YEAR! AND, OF COURSE, TIME FLIES WHEN YOU ARE HAVING FUN.
As IPM – the Mother-body of HR in South Africa, we have had all the reasons to have a celebratory year, even though our priority always remains serving you. The Institute officially turned 70 in 2015, and that’s no mean feat! Since 1945, IPM has continued to serve HR Professionals, business leaders and all those involved in the management and development of people in the workplace.
A perfect platform for celebration was presented by the IPM 2015 Convention, where, together with our members, we dared to let our hair down amidst an action-packed, thought-provoking convention programme, whose quality was enhanced by a diverse profile of experts drawn locally and abroad.
To further engage the critical issues tabled at The Convention, IPM will be running focused workshops during 2016, with a view of empowering HR Professionals and business leaders with strategies on how to proactively manage the emerging order discussed at The Convention.
Next year will also see the unveiling of the IPM Commemorative coffee table book, which gives a glimpse of our 70-year journey shared with many of you, at what we hope to be a celebratory affair for all of us.
Watch this space for further details including the date.
Finally, with the holidays upon us, we want to express our sincere gratitude to all of you for your unwavering support! Without your input, progressive thoughts and contributions of all kinds, we wouldn’t be able to achieve what we have to date.
We wish you a well-deserved break during this festive season. May you continue spreading your generous spirit, including to those less fortunate in our communities, till we reconnect re-energised in the new-year!
