Successful labour broker briefings were held in six provinces and technology (via webinar) allowed APSO to broadcast the update given by Johnny Goldberg in the JHB session.

In addition to clarifying the implications of the proposed amendments, in particular what happens to the triangular relationship after the proposed 3-month period, Johnny also gave delegates some ideas on how they could manage these changes with innovative business solutions.

Feedback from members who attended has been overwhelmingly positive and we’re pleased to be able to provide members with the support and guidance they need during these uncertain times.

For members who did not attend, you should have received an email with a link to Johnny's slides. If not, please contact APSO Head Office.

Tools to assist you

APSO realises that during this time you, your staff, your temps and clients may have questions and so we’ve developed two documents to specifically address these primary concerns.

The first, Overcoming Objections to Labour Brokers, is specifically designed to provide you with the information including hard facts & figures, to overcome some of the most common objections raised against our sector. We actively encourage you to discuss this with your staff members so that they can be empowered to motivate the industry, answer these questions accurately & consistently, and to feel confident about the value that we bring to our temps, our clients and the country as a whole.

The second, The Economic Importance of Retaining Flexibility, has been written to educate and empower clients to feel confident about retaining their flexibility, including the services of legitimate temporary employment services (TES) providers. It dispels some of the most common myths currently being publicly touted by naysayers such as COSATU, and encourages them to mitigate their risks by assessing their providers against the compliance criteria and membership of organisations like APSO. We encourage you to share this document with your clients.

APSO will be partnering with the South African Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SACCI) to share this document and to develop a tool for their members (client businesses) to assess their current TES partners and to encourage them to only work with members of professional, recognised bodies like APSO where they are held accountable to a Code of Ethics and compliance criteria.

If you have access to any other spheres of influence in the business and HR fraternity, please feel free to share this document with them or to contact APSO to assist you in engaging with them to educate their members.
