South Africa’s 2017 Future of HR Awards

Future-fit: Tascha Hermann from Green Grass Consulting announced as a winner at South Africa’s 2017 Future of HR Awards

Against impressive competition, Tascha Hermann, owner of Green Grass Consulting, was proud to take first place in the coveted award category, HR Rising Star of the Year Award, at the prestigious third annual Future of HR Awards, hosted in association with Careers24 on 20 July.

The well-attended awards ceremony, held at Boksburg’s Birchwood Hotel & Conference Centre, directed a spotlight on the country's most committed, effective and inspiring leaders in human capital management, with diverse categories honouring HR teams, rising stars, industry legends and charismatic CEOs. This year, the “innovation” aspect of nominees' entries was particularly scrutinised by the judges, against the backdrop of an industry facing more digital disruption than just about any other.

Tech aside, a focus on people and their potential will always remain “the heart” of HR, and Future of HR’s judging criteria also appraised HR practitioners, companies and public sector organisations across an array of more traditional factors; such as employee engagement, employee wellness, skills and learning initiatives and workplace culture.

A host of business leaders, industry experts, VIPs and media representatives applauded the winners of 11 coveted Future of HR trophies, while being treated to a lavish dinner and the a capella artistry of award-winning ensemble Just 6.
