Labour law in South Africa demands that employers are not only substantially but also procedurally fair to their employees. Employers actions must be consistent and employers are reminded that schedule 8 of the Labour Relations Act prescribes progressive discipline in order to correct the behaviour of an employee.
To achieve the above without the assistance of a simple to use, efficient and affordable tool such as iMC is difficult.
iMC is ...
... a modern, responsive, secure and very affordable web-based app; see cost below. Simple to use - little or no training - accessible from computers, tablets and smart phones, anywhere, any time. No new hardware, software or networks to install.
iMC allows managers to record any incident relating to one of his or her subordinates quickly and simply. iMC then directs the appropriate steps to be taken - providing brief and more detailed help. A dynamic diary ensures actions are taken on time.
HR or your consultant (at no additional cost) has oversight to ensure compliance. Data can be extracted to provide useful management insights.
HR / consultants
HR and employment consultants often get called in too late, when a manager had not followed correct procedure or fully documented events when dealing with misconduct or incapacity, or induction of new staff. A savvy employee or the Union can take an employer to the cleaners at the CCMA.
iMC is a tool that helps HR and consultants, allowing focus on more important and cost-effective work.
iMC @ work
You provide a list of employees, their sick leave cycles and their managers. We create a secure login with password for each manager. The manager logs in via his or her browser.
The home screen provide the ability to add a new incident at any time, or select and process an existing incident, filtered by due, overdue, all, closed or archived. Each type of activity (Absenteeism, theft, harassment, poor performance , good behaviour, etc.) has a work-flow which drives the process. The basic work-flow incorporates the requirements of the LRA but can be tweaked by your HR or consultant to incorporate your specific procedures, help and documents.
Senior management, HR and consultants can be provided with oversight access, exception reporting and data analysis for strategically managing the expensive human resources in the organisation.
The monthly cost is based on number of employees as per the table below. HR and outside labour consultants have access at no additional cost - enabling them to more effectively manage your employment issues. There is no hardware to install: simply run via your browser on your computer, tablet and/or smart phone.
To put the cost in perspective, this is the equivalent of less than one tenth of one percent of a typical wage bill. Reducing absenteeism by just one percent equates to approximately ten times this cost.
