eLearning - a top achiever

June 2010 News & Events

Accsys, a national supplier of payroll, HR, time and attendance and access control solutions, was acknowledged by industry as an Achiever Awards 2010 finalist within the Best Training Programme: Medium-sized Company category.

The company was nominated based on its adherence to full criteria as laid down by the organisers of the competition and the success of its eLearning Programme. This criteria includes proof of reliable, effective support and service to markets and developing business, skills development and measurable contribution to the process of training across industries.

The Accsys eLearning Programme is accredited by the Services SETA (Sector Education Training Authority) and is based on the virtual classroom concept. It offers learners an opportunity to acquire NQF Level 5 certification in payroll administration.

Accsys introduced the first online payroll course in Africa four years ago. Since this milestone event, Accsys management has continued to make significant strides in entrenching professional standards within payroll administration. To further entrench the importance of education and training within these areas of business management, Accsys has established Accsys PeoplePlace, a recruitment and career development division, as well as an internship affiliated to the Accsys eLearning Programme.

According to CEO Teryl Schroenn, eLearning has emerged as a pivotal tool within education and training. In addition to the benefit of being cost-effective (no transport costs, relocation or other logistical issues), eLearning also empowers individuals with the skills to make them more productive and therefore more valuable as assets within the modern workplace.

“The human resource arena has undergone substantial and significant change. Those entering the human resource or payroll administration fields must have the relevant skills sets, must be proficient in handling new systems and should ideally have the practical experience to support theory in order to manage in what are now viewed upon as being highly significant areas of business management,” adds Schroenn.
