Training & Development

Training & Development

Training and development of employees is one of the most challenging aspects of human resources management. Organisations have difficulties in striking the balance between time needed for employees to engage in skills development initiatives and time for employees to work towards meeting production targets.

Some organisations try to search for "readymade" employees as a solution to their dilemma. Well, unfortunately it is not always the case, as employees move from one organisation to another in different industries. Notwithstanding the dynamic of the evolution of better-quality systems of doing business and the development/enhancement of products, training is inevitable in order to be efficient as an organisation. Lack of training in a work environment may lead to loss of income to the employer perpetuated by lack of the necessary capabilities within the organisation.

Gauge Imperial Services will assist its clients in developing and implementing a Workplace Skills Plan, which is interrelated with the organisation's strategic objectives. We will also assist in the compilation of Annual Training Report and the submission thereof to the relevant SETA. The submission of the WSP and ATR will enable the organisation to receive mandatory grants that organisations deserves for the training of their employees. We will also assist companies in applying for discretionary grants.

Payroll Administration

Payroll Administration

"Pay Day" is one of the critical and recurring activities in business because organisations have the obligation to release funds for the labour force. Gauge Imperial Services provides payroll administration services to any size of an organisation using reputable payroll systems. It is our priority to ensure that the client complies with all the legal requirements pertaining to payroll administration.

The payroll system will be configured as per the client's remuneration, benefits offered, practices and policies. Employees will be provided with payslips on a monthly basis (electronic or hard copy) and IRP5 on a yearly basis. We will also conduct payroll reconciliation and ensure the necessary statutory deductions (i.e. PAYE, UIF, SDL) are calculated and submitted to the relevant authorities such as the South African Revenue Services. Payroll services are provided to any size of organisation from micro to large size organisations.

Furthermore, Gauge provides human resources administration services to companies that have challenges in organising employees documentations. We can design and implement an efficient Filing System, ensure all the necessary employee documentations are on file, and ensure that the client provides its employees with valid employment contracts.

Performance Management

Performance Management

We often hear of management deliberating on issues of productivity and profit/loss. This is often followed by organisations engaging in the development and implementation of strategic objectives as well as methods which will be adopted to attain the desired results of the organisation. The concept of performance management is implemented within organisations to ensure that the organisation meets its set strategic objectives. Various metrics are used by organisations to measure individual and organisational performance. Gauge Imperial Services will assist organisations in developing and implementing their Organisational Strategy as well as the development and implementation of an effective performance management system. Gauge will also assist in the development and signing of individual performance contracts and facilitation of the performance review/appraisal process.

In order to initiate the process of performance management, it is essential for the organisation to ensure that there are job descriptions in place. Gauge can assist companies with the development of comprehensive job descriptions.

Labour Relations

Labour Relations

Respectable and non-violent work environment is what both the employer and employees desire to have. However, this does not come easy as both parties need to make an effort towards having a respectable relationship. Both parties are interested in making money and conflict is bound to occur at some stage within the relationship. This can be attributed to the fact that each party wants to have its interest satisfied.

Whilst the employer’s endeavour is to maximise profit, the employer is advised to have rules and policies implemented within the organisation which employees are expected to abide by. On the other hand both the employer and employees have the obligation to work in accordance with the governing laws of the country within the work environment.

In order to ensure a successful relationship between both parties they may at times have to enter into negotiation processes to find an amicable solution to a dispute. There might also be circumstances in which an employee contravenes the company’s applied rules and a disciplinary hearing might be instituted against the transgressing employee. In either state of affairs, Gauge Imperial Services provides services such as Chairing Disciplinary hearings and/or representations at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).

Gauge Imperial Services moreover acknowledges that it is crucial for an organisation to have effective and legally compliant company policies and procedures to guide the behaviour of employees at work. At Gauge we will review existing policies to ensure that they comply and are up-to-date as per amendments of the relevant legislation. Should an organisation not have policies, Gauge will develop new policies and assist the organisation with the implementation process.
