Without digitisation, moving from a paper-based Labour Relations approach to best practice is just about impossible. You need to have all the knowledge, documents and processes at your fingertips, irrespective of your level of understanding and experience of Labour Relations.
The management of South African labour and employee relations has its challenges. As a country ranked worst in labour and employee relations in the world (thanks to the World Economic Forum’s World Competitiveness Report from 2018), it’s clear South Africa could use a little help.
The larger an organisation becomes, the more locations need managing, resulting in many managers conducting many processes with their many staff members on a regular basis.
Labour and employee relations departments find it difficult to ensure managers maintain fair decision making, alongside a consistency of actions taken, adequate documentation and ensuring the correct process actions are initiated. This is especially important when considering South African best-practice standards.
This leaves an organisation at risk of countless errors, legal issues and cost that can altogether be avoided using cloud software that digitally transforms and automates labour relations processes.
