Corruption Watch

Corruption is a word that on the lips of most economically active South Africans and deep down we would all love to rather be able to discuss sport, hobbies, happy families or something that warms our heart. Sadly this is not the case because of the political situation we live with and this is apparent […]

Future of Jobs 2018

The recent World Economic Forum report on Future of Jobs 2018 made interesting reading. I have extracted the section for South Africa for ease of use and the one section I found most interesting was the jobs of the future.

South Africa Crime Statistics 2017/2018

I have always had an issue with criminal record checks being part of the pre-employment or background screening industry. I know that it is the most common check globally but with the new GDPR and Ban the Box initiatives I do wonder how this is going to change. In South Africa I do not believe […]


I read with interest recently that pupils at a school were going to boycott lessons because they were not allowed to wear skinny pants.

A new focus on happiness – The iFacts Performance Toolkit

She spoke about the new performance tool that iFacts is now able to offer. Listening to her and her incredible message made me understand how we all have […]
