    Looking forward to your responses.

    Thank you.

    The Counselling Conversation

    Posted by Nicolene Rose- Innes on September 4, 2014 at 22:23 0 Comments

    South Africa is plagued with diseases which do not always require medication, but rather the exploration of the actions and feelings, which have led to poor life choices and resulted in disease. In addition to this, we live in what many would  describe as an extremelly stressful enviornment where we constantly misunderstand each other.  It  would  therfore  make sense that professionals working in the helath and human resource field learn the art of counselling.

    What are the requirements for a fair suspension from duty?

    Employers do often suspend employees from duty. However, sometimes the employer has an ulterior motive for the suspension, or alternatively the employer does not follow a fair procedure for suspension, or suspends the employee without pay. Ivan Israelstam highlights the dangers of an unfair suspension.

    How to avoid workplace "rebellions"

    Workplaces are based upon good faith relationships. The parties enter into a contract where the company agrees to pay for agreed work to be performed; the company has the responsibility to manage a safe work environment and the employees to abide by rules providing an organised safe workplace. But too often this goes wrong. Ivan Israelstam provides information and guidance before the upcoming seminar on this subject.

    Education is your best friend - President Zuma

    Learners have once again been urged to see education as the key to a bright and promising future, after President Jacob Zuma addressed stakeholders at the opening ceremony of the Kensington High School in Cape Town.

    Business-centric approach is important for CFO Organisations

    Successful organisations encourage their business departments to partner with the finance team to deliver data insights for better decision support according to t recent study.

    Strategy should drive employee training

    South African companies should not treat e-learning as a one-size-fits-all solution for training employees in new business systems and processes, but instead regard it as one tool of many for making their business strategies come to life.
