Our Mission

To deliver superior Human Resources Solutions.

Our Approach

To emerge as the finest human capital based company in South Africa.

Our Values and Guiding Principles

  • We recognise and value the power of individuality
  • We welcome empowerment and free thinking
  • We value cultural, racial and spiritual differences
  • We believe that respect, honesty and trust are key in all of our dealings
[restab title=”Why Use Us”]

We pride ourselves on NOT being an ‘off the shelf’ recruitment agency – We don’t sit around waiting for advert responses or rely on an old database. For every project undertaken, we create a bespoke, tailored search to ensure that each individual need and requirement is at the forefront, and each candidate is cherry picked exclusively for your role.

Many companies will have a PSL (preferred supplier list), but we have a PCL (preferred client list). We are privileged to have a prestigious client portfolio offering exciting roles, the chance to work with cutting edge technology, fast tracked progression and a refreshing working environment.

By working with a select list of clients we are able to dedicate more time to each role, enabling us to fully complete each search, rather than spread ourselves too thinly. With this philosophy in mind, we strictly only dedicate our time working on vacancies where we truly believe we can add value.

[restab title=”What To Expect”]
  • We cover every aspect of human resources – our product and service breadth means that we can offer a single, unbundled product or service, through to packaged, end to end solutions
  • We deliver perfect people – every candidate is assessed to achieve the right fit between the person, the role and the environment
  • We have a sought after top of the market candidates database

Job Descriptions with Linked Performance Appraisals

Oceana Human Resources Professionals develops job descriptions through a job analysis process that solicits employee feedback and establishes objective performance measures that specifically align with the overall goals of the organization.

Strategic Planning

It is the philosophy of Oceana Human Resources Proffesionals that strategic planning develops and provides a baseline of activities that will guide a company’s strategic business plan over the course of three years. Strategic planning provides continuity among key leadership as to the strategic direction of current operations and identifies the operational and environmental priorities for the company’s success.

Market Based Pay Analysis / Compensation Plan Design

Organizations today are undergoing dramatic changes in their approach to compensation. Many aspects of traditional systems are no longer found to be compatible with the rapidly evolving business environment. Oceana Human Resources Professionals can conduct a wage and salary review and develop a formalised salary administration program using competitive market analysis data.

Comprehensive Human Resource Audit

Oceana Human Resources Professionals conducts a comprehensive human resource audit to identify and clarify needs in the human resource area and highlight non-compliance issues. The audit focuses on qualitative findings and several quantitative benchmarks, which allows us to provide you with targeted recommendations to improve your human resource function and to reduce risk. Once a review of ten functional areas is complete, Oceana Human Resources Professionals develops a comprehensive audit report that can serve as the framework for a strategic human resource-planning document.

Training and Development

What is the best way to achieve exceptional employee performance? Provide them with training! Not only will training improve employee performance, there is a direct link between employees’ proficiency and the bottom line of your company.

Organizational Rating and Climate Survey

With the success of any organization dependent on its employees, Oceana Human Resources Professionals believes it is important to regularly survey employees to ascertain the organisational climate. A customised organisational climate survey is provided to all employees for completion and the results of the survey are analyzed and a written report of findings is presented.

Employee Policies and Handbooks

While there is typically no specific legal requirement to have an employee handbook, it is a best practice to have a carefully crafted handbook covering major areas of concern to both employees and the employer.
