Bespoke solutions to employment related challenges

Our HR and labour consultants sit in a separate subset within our Legal Department due to the complexity of Labour Legislation in South Africa and the increasing need for advice in this field.

Human capital is often the most important resource in an organisation and good advice can assist you to:

  • Get the maximum out of the employment relationship while avoiding negative unintended consequences and mitigating unnecessary risk
  • Keep up-to-date with the changing nature of work and legislation combined with the challenge of scarce skills
  • Realise the potential of your human capital and increase efficiency and productivity while meeting legislative requirements

We provide HR and labour consulting to numerous local and international clients.
