Technology and training can solve many labour-related headaches

Compiled by Accsys

South Africa is no stranger to labour dispute and issues that have plagued the mining and agricultural sectors of late reflect growing concern over the rights of workers and the need to balance these with efforts to sustain operations. The potential behind HR and payroll management technology should not be overlooked as stakeholders try to find practical, lasting solutions claim experts in business management.

With a Gauteng Head Office, Accsys is a member of the Business Connexion Group (BCX) and national supplier of people management software and hardware solutions within the HR, payroll and time & attendance space.

The company’s CEO, Teryl Schroenn, says that if strategically positioned and in line with the requirements of the business, there is no doubt that technology can help decision makers manage critical resources more effectively.

“Human resource management, within a corporate organisation, has evolved. With the advances in corporate governance requirements, the case for investing in solutions to help automate processes and procedures is strong. If one takes this a level further, payroll is very much at the epicentre of any business’ operation, without a well-organised payroll in place, the risk of mismanagement and disorganisation quickly escalates. This is where a payroll strategy has to come into play,” says Schroenn.
