About the Humanistic Management Network South Africa Chapter

The South African chapter focuses on opening up a new network of meaning, fresh insights and actionable knowledge on how to manage people in a more dignified manner. The Chapter is grounded on the spirit of Ubuntu – a core feature of the South African culture and society. Ubuntu is a Nguni Bantu term that means “humanity” and is also often translated “I am because we are.”

We are living in an ever-changing world where competition is becoming fiercer by the day and organisational performance is non-negotiable. To survive in this volatile and uncertain economy, organisations have to proactively be prepared to face and manage change effectively. In many organisations’ attempts on this regard, they often make the mistake of directing insufficient focus on the most important variable – the human factor of their operations.

Research has long indicated that irrespective of an organisation’s efficiency with technological advancements – what competitively differentiates one organisation from the next is the people within it. With this in mind, and guided by the vision and philosophy of the Humanistic Management Global Network, the South African chapter hopes to create a synergy for desired humanistic management. This is achieved by providing a platform where people can challenge the status quo and foster a business community that is cognisant of and strives for the establishment of human dignity within workplaces. Therefore, our main purpose is to provide a space where we can have dialogues and engage in projects that provide much needed constructive solutions to the business environment, as well as the communities within which we operate.  In collaboration with experts in academia, industry, policymaking and media – we wish to invite you all to join our efforts towards strengthening the cause of Ubuntu-guided business practices!
