WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Well developed workplace policies and procedures are critical in maximizing employee/employer potential by creating standards on how people management issues are handled. These policies further contribute to the attainment of strategic goals for any entity. The New Employment Code Act No. 3 of 2019  enlists a total of six (6) HR policies and procedures which every employer must have in place. Employers were given a one (1) year transition period [from 9th May 2019 to 8th May 2020] within which to ensure that provisions of the Act are implemented. Since the deadline is fast approaching and to ensure that all companies are compliant with the Employment Code Act, KSM will be running a workshop on Developing Mandatory HR Policies and Procedures.

This workshop will identify the Mandatory HR policies as outlined in the Act, then delve into the intricacies of HR policies and procedure development, empower participants with skill, knowledge and tools to enable them to develop these policies and procedures, get buy-in from top management and effectively implement and enforce these policies and procedures.
