Human resources is crucial to the successful running of the day-to-day activities of any business. Yet, many companies tend to overlook labour relations and the importance of human capital in a business.
Sidney Hanstein, a young Namibian entrepreneur, saw the gap and founded Outsourcing Solutions, a registered Namibian Close Corporation based in Windhoek.
It operates in four distinctive areas of business namely, Recruitment and Selection assistance (Brain Preference Profiling), Staff Performance Management, Basic Human Resources services and Payroll.
Founded ten years ago in 2002, the company is one of the fastest growing human resources service providers in the country. Located at 14 Liliencron Street in Eros, Windhoek, Outsourcing Solutions is a strategically positioned, independent service provider, rendering human resources and related services to existing and potential clients.
The company concentrates on delivering quality human resources solutions and related services to established, as well as upcoming organisations. Hanstein has worked with some of the country’s most successful businesses such as Africa Online Namibia, Multi Choice Namibia, Cornastone, NIPAM, Roads Contactor Company (RCC), Adforce DDB and Otjozondu Mining, among others.
The company’s range of core services include Basic Human Resources Services, Human Resources, Industrial Relations, Recruitment and Selection, Performance Management, Training and Development Facilitation as well as other company specific requirements such as Labour Broking, Strategic Planning, Staff Performance Management and Team Building and Motivation.
With input from management and employees, Outsourcing Solutions establishes quality, quantity or time based standards for each job function in the organisation. It also allocates weightings to each standard and manages the performance of employees monthly or quarterly based on the achievement of agreed standards.
Hanstein,who is also the company’s managing principal, works closely with organisations to develop customised strategies and programmes aimed at promoting a dynamic and highly productive employee-employer work environment. His company implements one of the most popular uses of the Neethling Brain Instruments in designing the Ideal Job Profile for each position in an organisation. By using the Brain Preference Profiling, it becomes possible to choose not only the job you ‘can’ do (skills), but also the job you will ‘love’ doing (preferences).The instrument is used to compare employee Brain Profiles with the Ideal Job Profiles and give guidance and advice to employees and supervisors/ managers to improve employee effectiveness.
