We know the saying that there are only 2 things in life that we can be sure of – death and taxes. There is another, and that is change!
In South Africa at the moment we are feeling the effect of change particularly. The poor economy and the weakening exchange rate impacts many of our businesses, and with the recent shifts in politics added, our staff feel the pressure of uncertain times ahead.
We have been thinking a lot about new trends in HR recently. What does the future hold for HR? Ngoni Munetsi, one of divisional HR heads, shared his thoughts with me in an article we called The Future of HR. The link to read it on our website is below.
We are very sad to confirm that Mandy O'Brien, our senior Payroll Service Desk Consultant, passed away on the 18th February.
Mandy had been with Accsys for over 9 years, and was a firm favourite with many of our clients.
“I especially want to thank Mandy O Brien for her excellent support over the years dealing with her. She always assists with such patience and ensures that the problems are solved. Such an efficient support consultant can only be a great asset to Accsys” – Gail Botha, Land Systems.
The 2015 Business Year is drawing to a close. In Payroll, we still have Leave and Bonus runs to do. Always a busy time.
We believe that the Retirement Reform section of the Tax Amendment Bill has been finalised and is due to go live on March 1, 2016. Details are as yet unclear. We will continue to monitor and give you feedback via our website.
On behalf of the Accsys team, I would like to thank you for your support over the past year, wish you happy and safe holidays, and look forward to seeing you in 2016.
