About our staffing and training solutions

Workforce Africa has been at the forefront of industrial permanent and contract staffing solutions in Southern Africa since 1972, helping organisations find ways to reduce their operating costs, streamline their manpower processes, and improve operational efficiencies. What’s more, we have an unwavering commitment to fostering job creation and skills development for our assignees.

We have more than 3 600 clients in both the private and public sectors, and over 37 000 assignees benefiting from permanent and temporary staffing contracts.

We serve all economic sectors across the African continent with a strong focus on benefiting both employers and employees through the provision of The Workforce Solution™.

Workforce Africa offers turnkey staffing, training, employee benefits, project outsourcing and health and wellness solutions to companies operating throughout Africa. We are committed to fostering job creation and skills development, and work closely with stakeholders in each country to source local talent.

In addition, Workforce Africa has local offices on the ground and is able to offer a full mobilisation and demobilisation solution for companies where specialised skills need to be secured from outside the country. This includes assessing the employer’s needs, sourcing the workers, organising visas and vaccinations, and making travel and housing arrangements for the workers.

Scope of our services

Staffing & recruitment solutions

Staff outsourcing

We provide a comprehensive range of industrial staff outsourcing solutions utilising primarily blue-collar and technical categories. Our integrated solutions extend beyond the relatively simple task of just providing staff and labour. We also include a comprehensive administrative role to manage all aspects of the human resources management matrix efficiently and cost effectively.

Recruitment solutions

Through our recruitment division, we offer a broad spectrum of recruitment solutions geared specifically to the African market. We recruit utilising a variety of techniques, which ensures our success in identifying, attracting and placing quality candidates who match the culture, caliber and skills required by clients.

Time and Attendance Management

Staff outsourcing

Our time and attendance management software solutions allow companies to administer intricate time and attendance policies, improve control of labour costs, improve security via access control, automate business processes and eliminate administrative tasks with reliable, real-time data for improved decision-making.

The time and attendance systems are carried out via our developed software and the installation of our immensely popular clocking systems. Whether you employ a small or large contingent of staff, we develop a time and attendance system best suited to meet the specific demands of your business.

Services include occupational healthcare screening; guidance, training, management of HIV/AIDS in the work environment and customised employee wellness programmes with a 24 hour call centre, staffed by qualified professionals.

Another important service offering is our facilitation of learnerships, apprenticeships and internship administration. Our extensive experience in this regard has resulted in close working partnerships with a number of clients, covering a broad-base of industry sectors.

Our recruitment people

Uplifting people and the community

Many of the contracts we are involved in are directly or indirectly the result of private or public sector initiatives to create jobs and uplift communities.

Job Creation and the multiplier effect

When sourcing candidates for our clients we recruit from the local community where possible, which not only eliminates assignee challenges related to working far from home, but also enhances the local economy of such communities.

Workforce Staffing has over 37 000 assignees in the field daily. By providing this employment we are contributing to assisting local communities with job creation and financial inclusion, as well as contributing to the growth of the South African economy at large. We also play an important role in youth development - particularly at grass roots level - where first time job seekers use temporary assignments as an entry into the job market and improve their employability as a result of on-the-job training and skills development provided.

Skills Development

We are further devoted to upliftment and skills development through the provision of learnerships and other skills programmes throughout Africa..


Looking after our assignees

We are committed to keeping our employees happy and, as a result, productive through various employee-centric benefits:

Employee Wellness & Assistance Programmes
Primary Healthcare
Life-skills Training
Essential Employee Benefits
Employee Lifestyle Products
Recognition Rewards
Statutory Benefits
Worker’s Benefit Fund
Staff Saving’s plan


Corporate Social Investment (CSI)

Our “Workforce Cares” committee manages CSI initiatives across the Workforce Group. Initiatives vary from direct donations, project support, sponsorships and participation in fund-raising events.
