Our #HelpingYouWork Initiative
The changing workplace, the impact of the 4th Industrial Revolution and the growing Gig-economy brought the realisation that there would soon be many more people who would work as freelancers or start their own business, especially in South Africa. They will need advice, resources, knowledge, skills and training which will not necessarily be provided to them by a corporate employer.
Hence we started this initiative - with the focus on providing legal insights, training and practical tools to a broader group of people and to make expertise and practical guidance accessible without the hefty fees that are normally attached to it. Traditional employment issues are covered, particularly with a view to strengthen the ER-skills of managers and HR practitioners. In addition, attention is given to addressing the legal risks around being self-employed, freelancing or handling staff issues as an entrepreneur in a start-up business.
