Greg, an expatriate South African, was the London-based executive director of equity derivatives at Goldman Sachs, one of the more successful investment banks on Wall Street. In his New York Times exposé he described a…

Day off for practicals

Good Day

Please enlighten me.If you have an employee who is studying towards a qualification which is not work related and that employee is required to go and do practicals for 4-6 weeks. Can the employee use his/her annual leave days to do that? Can the company refuse such an employee leave for that?

What is the practise out there. What are the employees rights vs the employers' rights?

I asked why the GM had not been advised they had a prior training engagement? The response was – “we cant do that , well be fired”

What a…

What can be done when there are no Unit Standards to match beneficial training interventions?

There was a time when companies supplying highly beneficial training interventions - that did not match the sometimes archaic Unit standards - were grouped as Recorded Providers by the Services Seta. This ensured that they were in some recognised for their value. This has fallen by the way.

Many Unit Standards are based either on companies recording their own work, or on very old fashioned and didactic training outcomes and methodologies.

For example:- Diversity…

It is more about compliance to labour legislation as opposed to increasing our economic output, improved quality and in generating better wealth for all.

 

Training have focused more on learnerships / qualifications on paper as opposed to…
