Employment Equity Season – Are you ready?

As Employment Equity is well and truly underway, some companies might find themselves scrambling for all of the information that they need for their reports. Documents like the EEA2 contain a vast amount of information which should be updated through the year, on your payroll system. Pay Solutions payroll offers you an HR Management platform which links to your Payroll system which allows you to immediately download completed reports for the Department of labour based on what has been captured in the system and based on the movements of your workforce distribution, which covers recruitment, promotions, terminations and skills development and is offered at the fraction of the cost of other Employment Equity modules provided by some service providers. In addition, you can save on the cost of paying for expensive software upgrades, consultation fees and time wasted waiting for reports to be fixed by your external consultant.

How important are Job Profiles?

Preparing your Job Profiles and having them updated regularly to keep them accurate and current, can save your company from many potentially costly issues during an employee’s lifecycle with your company. Your employee’s job profiles are the basis of countless HR interventions. From the moment the candidate applies for a position within your company, the job profile can make or break the integrity of the recruitment process.  It all starts with you, the employer, having a good understanding of the job functions and the role required for the candidate to successfully execute their duties in your business. A job profile reflects the minimum requirements for a position. These include the required qualifications, experience, knowledge, skills and behavioural competencies. A job profile also contains the main responsibilities of the position. This is the heart of the job profile.

Leave Management and Absenteeism

Keep track for absenteeism with pay Solutions cloud-based Leave Management system

Would it surprise you to know that the average cost of employee absence from work result to an equivalent of 35% of your employee’s salaries? The net cost of absenteeism in terms of productivity is 19%, according to a study conducted by MERCER. Statistics South Africa estimates that the cost of absenteeism amounts to roughly 12 billion rand per year. In a market that is taking particular strain under the current economic conditions, high rates of absenteeism can cost your company financially as well as through lowered productivity, be it a small company, medium business or a large corporate organisation. While the cost of absenteeism and the corresponding loss of production can be quantified, the issue around how to manage leave and absenteeism within your company is less measureable. With the inevitable split between HR departments and systems and those of payroll, within many organisations, calculating the cost of leave management is an area which is particularly affected as a result.
