The core of our business is always Labour Relations. However, Labour Relations is woven into the fabric of the science of Human Resources and cannot stand on its own. In this spirit, we offer the entire scope of HR services. With the aid of our associates, we can design and implement your entire HR function, from recruitment strategy to Training and Development; from your policies and procedures to your disciplinary codes. For smaller businesses on a tight budget, we even offer a "part-time" HR Management service, tailored to suit your exact requirements.

With a combined 60+ years of corporate HR, IR, T&D, Risk and Security experience in various industries, we have the knowledge and background to do more than just push papers on your behalf. We partner with you and your business, walking the path together to ensure a quality HR function that complements your business vision.


Whether you are an individual employee experiencing some strife in your workplace, or an organization that needs to maximize its people capacity, we can help you.

Let us come and do an analysis of your needs and design a program that fits in with your industry, your business and your vision.

Along with our associates, we offer a huge range of standalone training programs as well. From basic customer-centric skills training to more in-depth productivity related workshops, we have something that can help your employees, your management and your business.

Pre-Employment Contracts:

Who has the time or the patience (or the know-how) to conduct a proper pre-employment check nowadays? We do!

It has become almost commonplace to find that an applicant has falsified a Matric certificate, or lied about having a criminal record. Let us remove those worries from your recruitment process.We have the tools and expertise to give you peace of mind!

Our standard pre-employment package includes the following:

  • Matric / Senior Certificate verification
  • South African identity verification
  • Criminal record check
  • Credit check
  • We can also do international credentials verifications, financial interest checks and a host of other useful checks and verifications. Contact us for your specific needs!

Individual Support Services:

Are you experiencing problems at work with your management? Do you feel victimized or sidelined? Are you being made to pay for your uniform? Is your employer deducting all sorts of unknown items from your salary? Do you feel that your workplace is unsafe?

There are a million possible issues that you may be experiencing in your work environment. Countless employers get away with minor and major breaches of the various labour laws in South Africa, simply because the average employee doesn't have the specialized knowledge to identify these breaches.

That's where WE come in. Instead of being unhappy at work every day, let's see if we can make it better for you.

We also offer reduced rates for employees who earn below a certain income.

Rather be safe than sorry. Contact us today!

The Independent Contractor - Employers beware...

by Distinctive Labour Consulting
There is a growing phenomenon in the workplace today, that of the” independent contractor”. Essentially, this is a person who performs certain functions for an employer, just like an employee, but does not form part of the organisation and therefore is not considered to be an employee.
