Empowerment Series

As part of its founding mandate WPS has established programmes that allow for the empowerment Basotho in different ways.

Internship Program
The Internship Program brings together recent graduates and potential employers for a period of six months. During this period the employer has an opportunity to discover what the new trends in the education system are in their discipline, and to groom future potential employees or players in the field. This also contributes to the companies social responsibility portfolio. The company may chose to give the interns an allowance during this time to meet their transport and food needs. However this is mandatory for participation in the program.

The role WPS plays in the program, aside from liaising between the two parties is to address the behavioural aspects of the workplace. WPS in coalition with the supervisor of the intern will monitor the interns performance.

Training and Development
Does you company have a training and development program that is in line with the growth or potential growth of your organisation? WPS through its wide network of consultants with expertise in different spheres can organise training in line with your company’s specific needs.

Furthermore we have public offerings that you can send your staff to. We can also assist you in setting up a regulated and regularly updated induction manual.

Mentorship Program
WPS recognises the need for young professionals and entrepreneurs to learn from leaders of industry. As such we have developed a mentorship program that promotes learnership opportunities for young graduates. From this mentors are able to impart years of
experience to future leaders.

3. Policy, procedures and Contracts
Policies are necessary to ensure uniformity of behaviour and practises in an organisation. They also decrease vulnerabilities to litigation and fraudulence and increase the control that management has. These must be in line with the d e s i r e d culture and values of the organisation. Are your company policies comprehensive and inclusive?

4.1 Retrenchments

This has to be managed in order to save costs, but at the same time decrease the negative impact this will have on the employees. We offer the following services.

Management of the retrenchment process. This includes:

4.2 Resignation
Employees that are vital to the company sometimes resign, whether it is individually or successively. It is important that the company knows the reason for these resignations. It is wise sometimes to have an impartial party conduct the exit interview. This will help the employer have a clear picture of why the individual(s) leave the company’s employ.

4.3 Dismissals
When dismissals occur it is important that they are carried out with precaution and non-bias. An employee might feel that he or she is being unfairly dismissed despite the holding of a hearing if there is a some antipathy in the workplace. Having an impartial Chair to the disciplinary hearing where the chance of a dismissal happening is high is prudent.
