Why Choose SHRS?


A 360-degree approach to Payroll Administration and Human Resources

SHRS's founder, Hermina Patton’s career started in 1987 in a Recruitment and Training organisation and between 1988 to 2001 she worked for two organisations in the IT industry.

At the end of 2001, after the liquidation of the Siltek Group of Companies (the leading South African IT Distributor at the time), Hermina founded Specialised HR Services intending to focus on the SMME environment which had very real needs and requirements.

Hermina saw the challenges that SMME's were facing – and she realised their situation could only become more difficult as the new SA administration sought to enact an increasing amount of new labour legislation.

So she set out to create a 'boutique' Payroll Administration and Human Resources firm - a company that offered BOTH Payroll Consultancy and Human Resources Services on a single, integrated service platform while enabling clients to choose one or the other.

Central to the SHRS approach is this: the understanding that it's not practical or efficient to offer a proper Payroll service in complete isolation from Human Resources - or vice versa.

And because SHRS was founded, from the outset, on the principles of compliance and simplicity – we continue to deliver, even over-deliver, on our promises to our clients.
