HR Tuks networking event a huge success
13 August 2018
HR Tuks, the Human Resource Management student society, recently held its first human resources networking event, in collaboration with the South African Board for People Practices (SABPP), the HR professional board, and the Human Resources Department at the University of Pretoria.
Six major recruitment companies, including Michael Page, PwC, AEL Mining Services, Human Capital Solutions, and the Technology Innovation Agency attended the event, along with more than 40 HR, Industrial Psychologist and Labour Relations students from undergraduate to master’s level in the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences.
The event started with interactive presentations, where entertaining and engaging speakers informed students of their experiences in the field and their roads to success, also providing advice for students’ future careers.
It ended with an innovative session of ‘speed networking’, where students were afforded an opportunity to meet with people employed by the companies represented at the event.
This new initiative has allowed students to find out exactly what the human resources industry is like in the real world, and provided companies with a platform to market themselves in a fresh, exciting way, said Chairperson of HR Tuks, Frank Wilkinson.

“It will no doubt be grown and developed in the years to come into an even more successful event, but for a first time (event), these young students have set the bar high,” he said.
