  At crossroads: Reimaging Management Sciences and inclusivity
 
Postgraduate students at the Department of Human Resource Management give tribute to important female role models in their lives.
  Colleagues from the Management Sciences (Prof Nasima Carrim, Prof Alewyn Nel and Prof Stella Nkomo - Department of Human Resource Management, Dr Olebogeng Selebi - Department of Business Management and Dr Tinashe Ndoro - Department of Marketing Management) discussed the Clicks/TRESemmé advertisement concerning a hair product that has resulted in a major uproar, as the advert was regarded as depicting Black African hair as being dry and damaged. The advert was regarded as being targeted against Black Africans. This webinar focuses on how advertisements can be marketed by being inclusive, and the impact negative advertisements can have on business survival and employee morale, job security, happiness and motivation.
 

The importance of “trying on” a leader identity

 

EMS Talk | Will we ever find balance again?

EMS Talk hosted by the University of Pretoria’s Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences, during which academics from the Department of Human Resource Management (Prof. Jenny Hoobler, Dr. Anne Crafford, and Dr. Daphne Pillay) share cutting-edge research on leadership and identities.  
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, employees have been thrust into the never-ending mode of ‘surviving’ and balancing work and personal life. The pandemic affected all spheres of life (economic, professional, social, and personal). To be overwhelmed and feel unrelenting fatigue seem to be common shared sentiments, since employees had to cope with all these spheres intermittently for the last year. While the challenge of maintaining a balance in one’s life is not a novel concept for many employees and employers alike, dealing with COVID-19 and all its implications on work has resulted in a new set of challenges that demand a new approach to working and thinking about one's wellbeing.
 
Maintaining and sustaining psychological, mental, and emotional wellbeing during such a prolonged, indefinite period is challenging, and can be detrimental if not handled correctly. We, as industrial psychologists (Prof. Nasima Carrim, Prof. Herbert Kanengoni, Prof. Eileen Koekemoer, Prof. Alewyn Nel and Dr. Natasha Winkler-Titus) , will explore the effect of this on organisational and individual levels and offer advice on how to navigate your own wellbeing during these uncertain and undefined times. Acknowledging and understanding that we are experiencing a unique stressful situation that needs an entirely different kind of insight and approach for employers and employees are key to finding your balance again.
