Human resources are the most valuable commodity in any organisation. In all operations content, appropriately skilled, and well-managed employees in the right positions can prove to be the difference between phenomenal success and catastrophic failure.

Because of stricter requirements, limited resources, and often over bureaucratic processes, organisations in the ublic Sector face a particularly difficult challenge in capitalising on their people capital while at the same time implementing strategies that will project them as an employer of choice to potential employees. This fact coupled with the current skills shortage, an ageing workforce, and tighter legislation concerning OH&S and discrimination has meant that many organisations, particularly in the public sector are struggling to adopt successful approaches to HR.

This conference will demonstrate how to develop HR strategies that conform to the unique requirements of the public sector, increase your appeal as an employer and minimise the risk of unnecessary costs associated with poor people and performance management. Key topics to be explored include:

• Marketing your organisation as an employer of choice
• Recruiting and retaining highly skilled staff in the right positions
• Implementing strategies that prepare your organisation for future staff turnover in an ageing workforce
• Simplifying and standardising your approach to performance management
• Creating an culture that is equipped to handle rapid and consistent change
• Conforming to OH&S and discrimination legislation
• Creating an environment attractive to generation x and y employees
• Facilitating effective and continuous communication throughout your organisation
