The Confederation of Associations in the Private Employment Sector (CAPES) is an umbrella body, formed in 2002, when the need for a unified voice for the South African staffing industry became apparent.
CAPES was created specifically to act as the lobbying organisation for the four primary staffing associations, including the Federatio of African Professional Staffing Organisations (APSO), who represent thousands of SME staffing businesses, and several of South Africa’s largest corporate staffing companies.
