This move was reached at after the firm’s Sales Manager, Ian McAlister was invited to exhibit the company’s products and services at the event and used the opportunity to underline the importance of effective people management within emerging markets across Africa.
According to management at CRS HR & Payroll Solutions, both South Africa and Zimbabwe have HR practitioners who are passionate and serious about HCM. “South Africa is ahead in the use of systems to manage human capital. There is a market in Zimbabwe for an integrated payroll system that will assist companies in making informed compensation decisions and flexible report generation capacity and flexibility like the CRS system.” McAlister explains.
He adds that conferences, such as the one hosted by IPMZ, play a crucial role in facilitating information share and exposure to global best practices.
The company also utilised its participation to renew old acquaintances, present its HR & payroll offering and strengthen its commitment to its country partner, Distinctive Consultancy Services.
“We took advantage of the high-level interaction between companies about best practice and the willingness to share ideas,” McAlister continues. “If more practitioners got involved in the various conferences that regularly take place across the continent, it will add even more value and increase levels of interaction.”
CRS HR & Payroll Solutions believes that the attraction and retention of talented and skilled practitioners drives the market in Africa, but legislation will impact direction and pace of change within various regions.
