CRS Technologies hires SA’s future tech talent

The company believes one of the main benefits of workplace skills acquisition is that it closes the gap between theoretical knowledge (gained from attendance at academic institutions) and practical application.

This is viewed as a major contributor towards the country’s increasing rate of unemployment among graduates.

Nicol Myburgh, Head of HR Business Unit at CRS Technologies, explains that internships have increased in popularity and have proven to be consistent in helping to deliver the right calibre people into the labour market.

“And CRS Technologies leads by example. We are a people-centric business that prides itself in knowing what the market wants and the demand for candidates with some experiential training is growing,” says Myburgh.

CRS Technologies took the first step in an ongoing plan of internships being funded by the Services SETA (Sector Education and Training Authority) and the eventual insourcing of recruitment for CRS and its clients.

The four interns are contracted to the company for a period of 3 months and during their training will receive hands-on practical experience in order to become proficient and operationally involved in the HR & Payroll services departments.

CRS Technologies has undertaken to assist the interns to secure fulltime employment once they have completed the internship programme.

“Whether it be internally with CRS, if we have the capacity to do so at the time, or possibly place them with clients,” adds Myburgh.

According to CRS Technologies while the SETAs are promoting and encouraging learnerships via grants and other means of funding – and many companies have made use of these – with the level of unemployment rising, there are not enough of these in place.
