Dear Colleagues:

It is my pleasure as WFPMA Secretary General/Treasurer to share the latest issue of WorldLink, this time focusing on people management in Africa.

— Get ready for the WFPMA World Congress in June 2018 in Chicago, Illinois. This issue of WorldLink highlights the keynote speakers and provides plenty of links for registration, marketing and more.

— Areff Salauroo, president of the African Human Resources Confederation, reflects on HR’s role in Africa in achieving the sustainable development goals set by the United Nations.

— An article examines the future of work in Africa—and whether we’re in a fourth Industrial Revolution.

— HR leaders in Tunisia share their perspectives on how their country’s recent revolution has affected HR.

The newsletter includes other important HR reports and reflections, as well as brief news updates on various HR-related happenings in African countries. We trust that you will find this issue of WorldLink, which is available on the WFPMA website (, timely and informative. Please forward it to the members in your association and post it on your association’s website. 

The next issue of WorldLink, publishing in May, will feature the Asia Pacific Federation of HRM and HR news from all over Asia Pacific. If you have story ideas for your regional issue or events you would like to add to the Calendar, please contact WorldLink Editor Melanie Padgett Powers at
