In an effort to continuously engage with businesses that contribute toward the Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF), the Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) participated at the Global Expo 2019.

The Expo was held from the 6th – 9th August 2019 at Fairground Holdings under the theme ‘Harnessing the Power of Emerging Markets for Economic Growth’ which was coordinated by the Botswana Investment and Trade Center (BITC). In its 14th edition, the event was officially opened by His Excellency the President of the Republic of Botswana, Dr Mokgweetsi Eric Keabetswe Masisi.

Part of the mandate of the Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) is to support workplace learning in businesses to uptake skills development through the (HRDF).

The HRD Fund is operated through a levy grant system where companies that pay a levy into the HRD Fund are reimbursed costs they have incurred in training their employees. Exhibitions such as the Global Expo present a unique opportunity for HRDC to dialogue with valued stakeholders regarding its mandate and acquire their customer experiences that serve as feedback on how to improve our service delivery.
