Registered Employers’ Organisation since 1998

Registered in 1998, CEO is an influential employers’ organisation, providing representation for employers in labour disputes in diverse labour forums as well as collective or sectoral bargaining in various industries and bargaining councils.

CEO has a national footprint of offices and a membership base of over 18,000 employers, including private and public entities, from SMMEs (Small, Medium and Micro-Sized Enterprises) to large businesses across South Africa. Our experience enables us to effectively deal with labour related issues on behalf of the employer.

And in the same way that unions represent employees, employers require a professional and expert-driven organisation to represent them in CCMA and Bargaining Council matters – which form part of the modern-day labour environment.

They need an employers’ organisation with a voice that makes a difference.  CEO, with a large membership in various industries and a wealth of experience, is that voice.

Anton Licina, Contron IT

I just want to compliment Tarien Conradie on a job well done at the CCMA today. She was very well prepared for the case we had in Vereeniging. Although the applicant had a union representative present with all kinds of controversial demands, he did not stand a chance against Tarien who overshadowed him in all aspects of the case. I was barely needed and Tarien could have handled this case on her own without me being there. Well done to her.

Jaco Brits, SSG Security

We do appreciate your effort in preparing this case and your follow-up work.
