WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT

One of the challenges of the IPP’s ED commitments is how to create meaningful jobs. Not only is it our duty to make sure that work becomes meaningful, but also that it opens the door to entrepreneurship as well as long-term employment stability. Workforce Management

  • The project site does not need the number of staff that the bid requirements list
  • Site Managers find it difficult to focus on core operations while additional staff on-site need to be kept busy
  • Finding local skills in an unfamiliar region
  • Finding, hiring and enrolling local labour is time-consuming
  • Unskilled labour is not workplace ready
  • Each client receives a dedicated project-based team
  • A full HR Management, as well as Advisory Service, will be provided to your Management Team
  • You are enabled to focus on core activities
  • Transparent fixed management fees
  • Ensure ED reporting compliance
  • You will have an active presence in the community through direct, real community upliftment
  • Execution of recruitment plan, employment contracts, payroll processes, as well as disciplinary procedures
  • The creation and implementation of a Workplace Skills Plan per EWSETA requirements

THE PROCESS

THE SOLAR WORKS PROGRAMME

We began our Solar Works Programme in late 2020. The Programme has 100+ staff working at different sites in the Northern Cape. Of special note are projects where employees that are trained by our professional seamstress trainer have gone on to produce full-spec retail-grade PPE that has then been supplied to the Power Plants that we supply labour to. This is especially relevant in instances where “project-based activities” are needed by the client.

The goal of our Solar Works Programme is to develop local community members’ skills and provide them with the tools and work ethic in order to become employable. With the right entrepreneurial skill sets in place, community members can then provide services to the IPP’s operating in the local municipalities.

Through a joint community approach with our clients, we have carried out projects such as seamstress training, installing food gardens, providing support to old age homes, assisting at post offices and cleaning schools as welll as police stations.
