Dr Suzanne Ravenall speaks about Labour Managed Services in an interview with CEO Magazine

Posted by on Apr 7, 2014 in Labour Managed Services, Latest News | 0 comments

Our Chief Executive Officer, Dr Suzanne Ravenall, was recently featured in CEO Magazine. The focus of the article was the latest trend in business: Labour Managed Services, which offers a definitive difference to existing provision of labour services across the entire labour spectrum. In the article, Ravenall explains, it offers clients who need the right quality of staff the solution of employing and integrating people who can be fully active in their business in the shortest possible time. This can be done on a contract or a permanent basis. “Finding the right staff remains one of the biggest challenges for any business today. As an established outsourcing business, we are good at finding the right behaviour and then equipping these incumbents with the skills they need to be successful employees in the shortest time possible – in all the business sectors we deal in,” Ravenall explained in the article. Quick, effective labour solutions that are tailored to client needs Here at Effectiveness Company, we can source up to 600 competent matches within a week. The difference is that we up-train all the people we find to the level where they can walk into their positions, without the lag usually caused by a new employee coming in and having to find his/her feet, learn the ropes as it were and settle into a productive job situation. What makes labour managed services particularly useful for businesses is that it’s not just about providing bodies, it’s about providing tailor-made staffing solutions. Effectiveness Company provides skilled people ready to perform their duties upon entering the client’s business. “We have identified a need across the board for competent staff with the ability to deliver from the moment they arrive in the business. Apart from training staff prior to placement at the client’s behest and according to individual needs, we also manage the staff internally. Therefore the staff members remain in our employ and are working under contract to us, and paid by us,” explained Ravenall. One of the aspects that further sets Effectiveness Company’s solutions apart from the rest is the fact they also provide interim management staffing solutions by bringing trained managers into client operations where there is a need or a temporary shortfall. “We can either supply trained staff to be incorporated into a client’s business as fulltime staff paid by the client, or we can offer a staffing solution with a managed services aspect,” said Ravenall. Ravenall concluded by advising South African companies to tackle the skills shortage head-on. “In today’s economic climate, partnering with organisations such as The Effectiveness Company can alleviate some of the stresses involved with this hot topic. Job creation – sustainable jobs, that is – we...

An in-depth look at how outsourcing helps performance improvement and SMME growth in South Africa

Posted by on Mar 31, 2014 in Outsourcing | 0 comments

SMMEs face many challenges in the South African market that restrict performance improvement. Initiatives from a leading outsourcing company, however, provide significant relief for this vital industry, allowing them to move from strength to strength. Here’s what Effectiveness Company is doing to assist SMMEs with performance improvement: HR administration: Human resources tasks are an essential aspect of your business but they take up a lot of time and focus in order to complete them properly. HR outsourcing lifts this burden off owners and their staff, allowing them to focus on growing and developing the business itself. Having HR tasks competed by specialists also ensures that all your processes are compliant with relevant laws – giving you additional peace of mind. Recruitment: A time-consuming task at the best of times, recruitment means pulling your resources away from urgent tasks and applying them to expensive advertising, interview processes and training. Outsourced recruiting is faster, cheaper and gets you the best candidates from the largest recruitment pools without placing a burden on you and your staff. Payroll administration: This monthly task can quickly become a nightmare for SMMEs. Taking on your own payroll means that SMMEs are diverting vital resources into a routine administrative task rather than into core business functions, while outsourced solutions free you of this burden, are more affordable than hiring staff to handle this function and are quality and compliance guaranteed. Industrial relations: SMMEs face a lot of red tape with regards to labour management that can place their business under severe strain. Ensure that everything is above board, compliant with laws and within the best interests of your company without placing strain on your resources through this outsourcing solution. Performance management: Our outsourcing solutions include a range of tools that can be completely customised to your industry and goals, assisting you in reaching your business potential in every facet of your company. For more information on how Effectiveness Company is assisting performance improvement for SMMEs, please contact us today and ask about our affordable outsourcing...
