Cathie Webb, COO Accsys

We know the saying that there are only 2 things in life that we can be sure of – death and taxes. There is another, and that is change!

In South Africa at the moment we are feeling the effect of change particularly. The poor economy and the weakening exchange rate impacts many of our businesses, and with the recent shifts in politics added, our staff feel the pressure of uncertain times ahead.

As people managers we are realising that we need to take the time to talk to our staff, and to encourage a team approach to the situations in which we find ourselves. Keeping people in the picture means that they have a chance to take ownership, to make a difference in their particular area of influence, and to be part of the solution.
