Oil your personal growth

 Lena-Mari Josling

To see my four-month-old son in his exploration phase got me thinking about why our hunger for exploration fades. Are we just too used to the world or do we give up and stay loyal to our comfort zones? Maybe we're just caught up in the 'must do's' of life and neglect the 'want to's'. As our brains, skin and lungs start to die from the age of 20, most of us are already on a physical downhill. So is it not then worth it…

What incentives do employees respond well to?

by Lia Marus

The chronic skills shortage we're experiencing in this country is making it very difficult to retain one's staff because recruiters and other companies are hungrily preying on those who have those skills which are in such short supply. Company loyalty has become a thing of the past because of the tough economic times we find ourselves in and employees will go to the employer who pays the most.Is it possible to retain…

Eduloan simply delivers employee training

Sourcing the right training programme for your employees from a trustworthy training provider is not an easy task. The additional burden of finding cost effective courses that will give a return on investment can leave HR practitioners at a loss.

Companies who don’t have the necessary human resources experience are in danger of engaging with bogus training providers or participating in subpar training programmes.

However, Eduloans new Training Fund Management service is there…

Opportunities for senior citizens not a priority

I recently wrote an article on whether government’s plan to produce 30 000 artisans by 2030 is a plausible one.

According to the Ekurhuleni Skills and Training Center SA can reach this target if government provides development opportunities for older semi-skilled workers as well as young people.

This comment got me thinking about the current focus on youth development, youth employment, youth subsidies.

No-one doubts that investing in our young…

How to win the talent war

Three billion unskilled and semi-skilled workers around the world are jobless. A mammoth 1.5 billion jobs need to be created globally for the world to win the war against unemployment. This was the message from the 30th International Pan Pacific Business Conference which was hosted by the University of Johannesburg (UJ) earlier this year.

South Africa, like many emerging countries, is facing a major talent shortage. The latest Talent Shortage Survey…

Leadership development: The definition of insanity... The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results

Research indicates that 75% of organisations are not happy with their leadership development programmes. But when you look at the fact that today’s leaders are being taught the same leadership ‘principles’ as their predecessors were, it is not difficult to understand why this is the case. With organisations doing the same thing over and over again - and not drawing on any new research - leadership development has become stuck in a rut.

Imagine if team building actually worked

By Frik Nortje

While huge budgets are spent on team building initiatives, few companies report any increase in the execution capacity of whichever team was sponsored for such interventions.

During the 90s, team development interventions were rife. This is also where things went wrong. Today, we are still…

Invest in skilled workers: Skills development is vital for business growth

The organisation for economic co-operation and development was quoted as saying that “skills are the global currency of the 21st century”. Talent and its management is key to a company’s success and in order for a company to remain successful and competitive, the talent within the company needs to be managed, as well as improved upon, constantly.

For the vast majority of businesses in South Africa the biggest expense is the payroll of the people employed to operate, run and manage the…
