Use technology to network, not burn bridges
Jul 3rd, 09:01
In the fiercely competitive business arena, the acquisition and retention of skilled workers is paramount. The demand for skills, especially technical skills, and the need for job seekers to acquire practical experience, means that business relationships forged have to be effectively managed.
Experts in Human Resource development and management technology believe that building long term relationships with each employer and employee is becoming ever more critical.
This is because technology has advanced and created platforms for instant and cost-effective communication.
“The emphasis today is on maintaining steady relationships, nurturing networks and value-add to relationships in both the public and private sector,” says Teryl Schroenn, CEO of Accsys. “At the heart of this is work/life balance, a desired objective that technology could help us to achieve. One only has to consider the advent of mobile technology and mobile applications that make mobile work a reality today.”
Accsys is a member of the Business Connexion Group (BCX) and national supplier of people management software and hardware solutions within the HR, payroll and time & attendance space.
Africa is widely acknowledged to have the second fastest growing mobile market globally and is home to seven of the ten fastest growing markets worldwide.
Schroenn says the advent of mobile technology and the influence of social media have significantly changed the workplace environment – as well as processes and procedures that govern professional relations.
Schroenn adds that it is important for managers to recognise these changes and adapt their approach accordingly. This means that, for example, should an employee decide to leave to pursue other interests, in the event this does not prove successful, there would be the opportunity for that person to return and rejoin their former workplace.
“Alliances and professional relationships forged in the workplace are usually strong and there is now more effort being made to ensure that bonds are not broken if there is a parting of ways. It often happens that former work colleagues network and actually end up reuniting in a sustainable working relationship,” adds Schroenn.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.
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 lure of using social media as part of an integrated marketing strategy is very tempting. However, efficiently and successfully implementing that strategy takes a lot more than just building a Facebook fan page or opening a Twitter account. A lot of companies don't understand or are prepared for the fact that implementing a true social media strategy takes resources, time, and effort beyond merely hooking up your blog's feed to your Twitter account.
