Human Resources and Industrial for South Africa
In South Africa, human resources and industrial relations are two critical business areas regulated by law. Human resources management covers all aspects of an employee’s life cycle, from recruitment and selection to training, development, and dismissal.
On the other hand, industrial relations refer to the relationship between employers and employees and negotiating wages and working conditions.
In a country like South Africa, which has a history of human rights violations and labour unrest, businesses need sound human resources and industrial relations policies. These policies must comply with local laws and regulations and international best practices.
MASA is the perfect partner to connect with to learn more about South Africa’s human resources and industrial relations.
The Differences Between HR and IR
Human resources (HR) is the term used to describe the functions within an organisation concerned with the management of people.
Industrial relations (IR) refer to the relationship between employees and employers, usually within a trade union context.
While human resources management and industrial relations are two distinct fields, they are interrelated. Human resources managers need to understand industrial relations well to manage employees effectively.
Similarly, industrial relations practitioners must be aware of human resources management practices to represent employees effectively.
Defining Human Resources
Human resources (HR) refers to the functions within an organisation devoted to managing human capital. Human capital includes all individuals who contribute to the economic value of an organisation, including employees, contractors, and temps.
Human resources manage an organisation’s most important asset – its people. Human resources aim to ensure that an organisation has the right people in the right jobs and that they are motivated and engaged with their work.
At MASA, we offer comprehensive human resources solutions to businesses across various industries.
