Human resources has always been tough
In our post-covid workplace, it is now even tougher.

It's no surprise that 98% of HR professionals are suffering burnout*
A force for the workforce
The pandemic taught humanity many lessons. The line between work and play is not as clearcut anymore. As a result, people management is the most complex it’s been in history.
Who bears this brunt?
Our HR Practitioners
HR practitioners face more risk than they ever have. They have to comply with more legislation than ever before. And they have to enable productivity over a variety of new working models.
However, better tools are now available and they go a long way toward making modern-day HR challenges manageable.
New automation tools and technology are already changing the way we work and the world we live in, and they represent an opportunity to produce better results at a lower cost.
Produce Better Results
Protect Employee Rights
HR is a protector
As an HR business partner, it is incumbent to protect the interests of the company and its employees. As a strategic ally, the development of a productive, happy workforce is primarily based on the workforce culture promoted.
The importance of a people success partner
The decisions made by HR have the power to positively impact the organisation and the lives and livelihoods of the people working for it.
When people feel their best, they produce their best work which, in turn, benefits the company.
As a people success partner, you must leverage the rule of law to empower employees to bring their best selves to work. In doing so, you will take care of the well-being of the company.
Creating policy that protects employees and safeguards the company against liability is what you do best. The LexisNexis Survival Guide – Tshatshu v Baroque Medical (Pty) Ltd shows a decision where company HR policy was found to contravene South African Labour Laws. Decisions like these must be considered in your role as a protector, a strategic ally, and a people success partner to avoid similar blunders.
