The report finds many occasions where contracts and tenders were awarded by the CCMA without following National Treasury Regulations or practice notes.

The report also found that the CCMA did not deduct PAYE from the remuneration received by part time commissioners from 2003 to 2006. This lead to the CCMA…

The Corporate University Invention ! GREAT ! GREAT ! GREAT !

It has all the ingredients that our micro and macro economics require in order to stimulate the South African and African Economy and it will make everything happen for our ailing society.

We can now with absolute relief start to think of the emerging cultures of LOVE, Human Dignity, Innovation, Teamwork, developing a culture of work & work ethics, Respect, Caring, Assisting & Supporting what is good for our society to develop and to grow.

So glad for the support and positive responses. Just finished presentation to CEO & Deputy and humbly say I WOWED them!!!

I would love to chat to some of you to take ideas further so don't loose the thread.

Personally, I can see a CU as entrenching best practices in education within an organization, Managing Change and then if needs be to drive and shape the way business is done and the…

We so many times find that we are employment seekers instead of creating opportunities.

Have we ever looked at ourselves and ask what is it that is so unique and that I am so passionate about? At that very moment you look at all the many opportunities that come your way. That is an entrepreneur as opposed to a job seeker. An entrepreneur continue to dream of its own talentsand abilities and ask yourself how you can change those dreams into opportunities. There will obviously…

WOMEN'S DAY: REMEMBERING 1956: 'Wathint' abafazi, wathint' imbokodo'

9 August 1956: 20 000 women of all races marched to the Union Buildings, Pretoria, to hand over a petition against the Urban Areas Act.

The march against the pass laws was organised under the banner of the Federation of South African Women.

The Federation challenged the idea that 'a woman's place is in the kitchen', declaring it instead to be everywhere'.

Although Prime Minister J.G. Strijdom was not at the Union Buildings to accept the petition, the women of… Continue

Merging small business in HR, Training Or Recruitment

We all know times are tough and with the recession and BEE laws, some small businesses in Training and HR have closed shop because they do not have enough clients. Why do big business merge when the going gets tough? I have a strong standing Recruitment Company with even more potential for growth and think I can contribute to some accredited trainer who is struggling to find work since my clients have more faith in me than a new service provider trying to impress. I am also considering…

Is There a Debate On the Future of FET NATED Courses

Bureaucracy with its redtape can leave people misinformed thereby taking decisions that are in sharp contrast to national aspirations in matters of national importance. I was informed by authorities at one FET college that the DoHE&T is in the process of fazing out FET Nated courses which will be completely non-existent come year 2015. The said authorities were pretending to be talking from a well informed platform and they have already started doing away with N4, enrolling only their…

Keep flying our flag and shout for education!

I did say earlier that it is not about who governs but how they govern! This is very confusing in South Africa because of our apartheid past. If we are white and we don’t vote ANC it’s because we obviously want to go back to an apartheid South Africa and if we are black and we don’t want to vote ANC we are traitors. I think I understand this turmoil in our young…

We as members of civil society can never allow xenephobia to continue to threaten the lives of members of society irrespective of religion, culture, nationality nor any other diverse factors that allow the gangsters, criminals who continue to terrorise, kill and maim innocent law abiding people.

To just be a passive bystander in hearing and seeing how these satanic members of the very society that espouse as GOD fearing people can allow these criminal elements to kill, maim…

If any of us want to really serve humanity and that include our family, friends, neighbours and community as a whole, we need to show and practise exceptional values and qualities that are really inborn in our heart.

It is therefore a practise that our team culture is a winner. We further practise and live in honesty, we are reliable and transparent. We use our knowledge and that which we are competent in, with confidence and with a positive approach. With these factors come…
