Accsys and Boys in Business
Aug 12th, 09:35
Accsys, a national supplier of people management software and hardware solutions within the HR, payroll and time & attendance space and member of the BCX Group, has demonstrated its support of learner skills development and the benefits of exposure to entrepreneurship by hosting its annual Boys in Business Day.
The company recently hosted Grade 12 learners from WendyWood High School and Alexandra High School for a day on site at Accsys’ head office in Sandton. The company hosts the Cell C girl child with the same schools each year, and included the Boys in Business initiative, from the beginning.
True to its form in the provision of focused people management and value-added solution integration and support, organisers at the company had in place a full agenda for the Day, including several presentations by Accsys members of staff and executive management.
Learners were given a comprehensive tour of the company, including all divisions and departments, and provided with interesting facts and figures. Presentations covered business etiquette, the role of HR and payroll in business, recruitment, as well as the relevance of internship versus learnership.
However, it was the opportunity to field questions to the company’s CEO Teryl Schroenn that was the highlight of the visit.
Teryl concluded the day with an interactive dialogue with the group of learners and emphasised the importance of continuous reading and a proactive approach to learning and applying skills. The message seemed to have been well received by the group of students. and they expressed their pleasure at being able to interact directly with the CEO of a company, in an open forum.
Mlunghisi Maingele from WendyWood High School commented that he enjoyed the programming session as well as the interview tips.
Télan Hamer from WendyWood High School commented that he enjoyed the fact that there is a dynamic and personal working environment. He also enjoyed the advice and tips.
Khumalo Sizwe from Alexandra High School said he enjoyed the systems and the information. “Staff in the different departments were welcoming. I would definitely enjoy working for Accsys!” he added.Click here for more information on Accsys
Business Connexion Group member Accsys has once again proven the value of its people and technology expertise with the launch of PeopleWare Mobi, the first-of-its-kind Employee Self Service (ESS) mobile app to the domestic market.
Experts within the HR and payroll administration say that from a business operational point of view, it makes a great deal of business sense to drive critical applications through a single service provider.
A group of learners who recently graduated from the continent’s only online National Qualification in Payroll Administration Services course, provided by Accsys, have been congratulated by the company’s executive management and are empowered with all the resources necessary to make their mark on the industry.
Amid a climate of increasing economic pressure companies have had to become more pragmatic in their approach to the management of year-end bonuses. HR specialists say that more awareness of the variables involved in this process would clear up much of the general misperception that exists.
