Dear Members,

As we wrap up this whirlwind of a year, I wanted to take a moment to extend a hearty thank you to each and every one of you. Your commitment and participation have been the foundation of our organisation’s success, and we couldn’t be more grateful.

This year has been a journey of growth and learning, marked by diverse discussions in our newsletters and webinars. We’ve delved into a myriad of crucial topics, from navigating the intricacies of employee motivation, understanding the enforceability of settlement agreements, to the critical aspects of severance pay and the Employment Equity Act.

A significant highlight was the release of our comprehensive CEO’s CCMA Reference Book for 2023. This pivotal guide underscores our commitment to keeping you informed and prepared for the evolving landscape of labour laws and CCMA rules. Its launch is a testament to our dedication to providing you with the tools and knowledge to navigate the complex domain of employee relations and labour disputes.

We’ve navigated challenges, celebrated victories, and made strides toward our shared vision. Your belief in our mission is what makes us a formidable force in the realm of employers’ organisations and labour relations.

Now, as the year winds down, it’s time to kick back, relax, and spend quality moments with loved ones. Whether you’re planning a grand escape or a cozy staycation, recharge those batteries and return ready to conquer 2024.

And fear not! While you’re soaking up the holiday cheer, our dedicated team is keeping the ship steady. Your businesses are in good hands, even when some of us sneak in a bit of well-deserved rest.

Here’s to a festive season filled with joy, laughter, and a touch of relaxation. We’re looking forward to another year of shared successes and challenges tackled as a united front.

Cheers to you all!

Warm regards,
Annelien Breed – Executive Director
