Employers look for different things when they want to hire someone, however, what is most common about all employers is, they are all trying to answer this overarching question: can this individual add value to our business?


In South African perspective where there is a high unemployment rate, it’s often difficult for employers to find the right person for their companies. In order to increase chances of landing a job; potential employees need to be strong candidates, and by that I mean - they need to stand out from the crowd.

 

So showcasing their completion of relevant Sage Pastel courses is a great starting point.

It goes without saying that any rapidly growing business needs a world-class software like Sage Pastel Payroll & HR.

 

Also, if you run a business in South Africa (or anywhere in Africa) and have one or more employees in your company, not only you need HR, but an efficient payroll system too. The sooner you get those two right, the better.

 

Don’t be like one of those business owners who wait for things to reach crisis point before reviewing or improving things in their business. You may ask, “how would I know I need Sage Pastel Payroll?”

 

 

These are the signs:

 

1.Days before paydays are a nightmare

Your current payroll “system” may consist of manually tracking hours worked, using a calculator to multiply hours worked by an employee, and hand-write on a payslip.

 

Even worse, you may spend hours chasing timesheets from staff, deciphering the handwritten ones, reconciling or querying variations from the roster. What a nightmare!

 

2.You are employing new staff more often

Your business has outgrown the current manual system and each month you are employing new staff. This on its own adds to your number of tasks.

 

3.Paying tax has become a challenge

Staying on top of legislation, and being SARS compliant has become a huge challenge for you. This is because you waste time calculating employee tax and overtime manually. Your calculations may also be inaccurate.

 

4.Errors on payslips

Payslips have frequent errors. For example, things like pay increase or bonuses are not factored in properly. Almost every month you get the same complaints from your employees.

 

5. You can't pay employees on time
