"Catherine, personally I see the requirement for an agreement as a positive move, both for the provider and the developer of learning materials. Their admin system and work processes need improvement, though."

    Use an employee’s strengths – whether extroverted or introverted

    Posted by Chantel Harris on August 3, 2015 at 9:37 0 Comments

    There is a lot of talk lately about what it means to be extroverted or introverted. Sometimes it seems like society prefers one to the other. For instance, the outgoing, confident extrovert was valorised for a long time, but now the understated qualities of the introvert are getting a lot of appreciation.

    The truth is that no matter where someone falls on this line, their qualities and characteristics can work for them – especially in the workplace.

    Extroversion versus…

    ServiceSETA requirement for agreement if learning material is purchased

    Posted by Marie Smith on August 1, 2015 at 17:47 19 Comments

    Most developers of learning materials are probably aware that the ServiceSETA adopted a new procedure for accreditation earlier this year. Where they previously evaluated the online application for compliance and then arranged a site visit during which the evaluator evaluated both the QMS and learning programmes for programme approval, they now first do a desktop evaluation of the documentation before arranging a site visit. The provider has to submit the QMS and learning materials in hard…

    Introverts, business and effective growth

    Posted by Chantel Harris on July 30, 2015 at 14:46 0 Comments

    The long assumption has been that some people are shy and some others are outgoing; that people just are either of these, not a semblance of both. Yet, as we’ve all come to realise, people are too complicated to be considered one or the other - rather, we should talk about the kinds of behaviour we’re more likely to display, not what we will or always display.

    Written Warnings and Dismissals

    Posted by Nicole van Eeden on July 27, 2015 at 11:33 5 Comments

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

    Theft is a prime example: to charge the employee with “theft” is not sufficient and additional charges must be incorporated.  The reason we address other things relating to the theft is that it is not always proven in a disciplinary hearing that the act of “theft” was complete and the employee is then found not guilty.  It could be that the…

    Red flags in the interview process

    Posted by Chantel Harris on July 20, 2015 at 14:30 0 Comments

    When starting out a new romantic relationship, there are certain warning signs that will tell you to back away, like being over 30 with no inclination to move out from the parent’s basement, or having an unhealthy obsession with taxidermy.

    In much the same way, there are certain red flags that will help you know that an employee is not going to be a right fit for your company. You want to be on the lookout for these early on, before any contracts have been…
