Recent Gauteng Business News

Recruitment specialist the Kelly Group, through the Confederation of Associations in the Private Employment Sector (CAPES) and Business Unity South Africa (BUSA), supports a co-regulation model for the temporary employment services (TES) industry says chief executive Grenville Wilson.

CAPES, of which Kelly Group HR Director Elias Monage is president, has proposed an enforcement of existing statutes governing the TES industry on a co-regulatory basis. This means that instead of the Department of Labour (DoL) devising new legislation or banning labour brokering, a co-regulatory body would be established to register TES providers and where necessary investigate and de-register TES providers to protect vulnerable workers exploited by unscrupulous brokers.

CAPES and BUSA support the ratification of the International Labour Organisation’s (ILO’s) conventions and recommendations, including the notion of decent work and employment best practice. The Association of Personnel Services Organisation (APSO), of which Kelly Group skills director Bev Jack is a member, has also backed a co-regulation model.

Meanwhile a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to promote decent work in the TES industry has been signed between CAPES and the Federation of Unions of South Africa (Fedusa). The MOU requests that TES agencies be registered to ensure the application of quality standards in the industry.

The Kelly Group supports the sentiments of the MOU and urges the industry to report unethical activity and to only deal with reputable agencies.

“The Kelly Group is proud to be part of temporary staffing services which in South Africa employs 500 000 people a day and contributes R23-million to the economy each year,” says Wilson

The JSE-listed Kelly Group’s sector-leading brands include PAG, Kelly Industrial, Frontline, AOC, Kelly, Kelly ICT and InnStaff. Its US operations incorporate M Squared and Collabrus.
