Welcome TO Specialised HR Services

Specialised HR Services (SHRS) provides integrated payroll administrative services and human resources support to small and medium-sized companies (SMME's) across South Africa; typically, those with between 10 and 100 employees on the company payroll.

We specialise in fast-growing SMME firms whose commercial success is such that they begin to outgrow their existing, in-house Payroll and Human Resources functions. Because it's in such a situation that potentially costly regulatory compliance issues emerge - issues that SHRS will help you avoid timeously and cost-effectively.

We work with SMME owners and managers across the country, but with a particular emphasis on Gauteng since this enables us to deliver the level of hands-on, personal service which accords with our company values.

Our SMME company clients range across the following business sectors: IT, Distribution, Media Advertising & Printing, Private Policing, Engineering, Research, Logistics, Beneficiation Services, Supply-Chain Management, Vehicle Repairs, Labour Brokering, Insurance, Employee Benefits, Healthcare Services, NGO’s and Recruitment.




What makes SHRS different?

A proven track record of giving the SMME sector the same high-quality external payroll and human resources support that traditionally has only been made available to larger enterprises. Our service includes the top-level data integrity and security that your company's management and personnel demand.

Our staff has a demonstrable ability to work successfully in a range of demanding corporate environments: from business start-up and rapid growth scenarios, to rightsizing and downsizing situations.

Our founder, Hermina Patton, has worked in human resources management for over three decades. She is well placed to understand the payroll administration and human resources issues that your firm might be facing right now.

We believe SHRS' service track record speaks for itself. So what can we do to help you integrate payroll administration and human resources functions into your company's competitive advantage?

Hermina Patton together with her team at SHRS were appointed by SAICE to set up our payroll, taking into account all our differing employee specific leave and allowance rules. Hermina first met with all our staff as a group to introduce herself, SHRS and PSIber, their payroll system. Hermina then managed the tedious process of capturing all our staff details onto a database, compliant with the Department of Labour and taking over the YTD payroll figures. The transition from the previous payroll consultant to SHRS and PSIber was impressively seamless. Hermina also provided individual staff training on PSIber. It’s important to say that our payroll has run flawlessly from the very first month.

Subsequent to that Hermina, was commissioned to draft an all-encompassing Employee Guide for SAICE. Following a review of our existing employment contracts and meeting with our management team, Hermina produced a fully comprehensive document which has indeed become the “organisation bible”. Hermina has also updated our employment contract template to be in line with the guide.

Finally Hermina has assisted SAICE with our annual staff performance appraisals and numerous other HR matters.
In closing, it’s important to mention that Hermina’s vast experience and wisdom relating to HR has been so beneficial to our operation.
Her inputs on policy and regulations regarding labour law, staff training, employment equity etc, have been invaluable.

Why Labour Legislation Hits SMME's Hardest

Businesses the world over regard government regulation as a mixed blessing - all the more so if you're a Small, Medium and Micro Enterprise (SMME).

Full regulatory compliance is compulsory - not an option, and the following labour relations, employment equity, and occupational health and safety legislation must be complied with:
