    Written Warnings and Dismissals

    Posted by Nicole van Eeden on July 27, 2015 at 11:33 0 Comments

    When compiling a written warning or notification to attend a disciplinary it is extremely important that the charges are correctly formulated.

    Posted by Chantel Harris on July 13, 2015 at 10:00 0 Comments

    The aim of computer software is to make the task of a human resource manager easier. However, the way in which the HR utilises and executes a task is up to them. Modern technology has advanced throughout the years, and the fear we should all have is; will machine take away my job? The answer is, not quite -especially not if you are the HR of a major company. Human interaction is still required in all aspects of keeping employees happy. Human Resource Software may help track employee…
