Consequently, egotists and narcissists - who…

HR specialist versus HR generalist: which is better for SA?

by Cheyanne Ho

What happens when your best employee gets bored?

When an employee with admirable momentum and an unquestionable work ethic loses their dynamic drive, you could be close to saying goodbye to one of your best workers.

by Lia Marus

Minister Gordhan's budget speech in February this year changed the way you need to deal with employer-provided bursaries in your payroll. Sonika van Wyk: legislation business consultant at CRS Technologies says that previously, if an employee earned over R100 000, the first R10 000 was tax free.

Workers’ Day: integrating new employees



It was Worker’s day last week – May Day as it is known elsewhere. A day for workers to take it easy, relax, ignore their work and do their own thing. Of course, the cynical among us might say, ‘Isn’t that what they do every day?’
