Pros: working close to home, hours 08:00 to 16:30
Cons: hr systems development not complete and ongoing, stability of hr database and system is variable, severe manpower constraints, i serve 450 employees without any hr personnel reporting to me
Due to frequent acquisitions, the HR processes are still in development phase with huge demands on HR players in our team. The company has highly varied business models which impact the degree of HR involvement and control/standardisation of HR processes and policies.
We have a very large reactive & administrative HR component, which is envisaged to – more... reduce in the future (2-5 years). I am looking forward to when we shall be able to apply a more proactive approach to HR and become more involved in Career/Talent development.
Co-workers are situated across the country and meetings/communications are done on email or video conference facility.
Least enjoyable/hardest part of the job is working to tight deadlines with a data system that is still in development phase, with little support and severly constrained manpower.
Most enjoyable part of my job is the resolution of enquiries, labour matters and successful recruiting. – less
