Membership of CAPES is broken into two categories – Association and Corporate.
CAPES was created specifically to act as the lobbying organisation for the four primary staffing associations, who represent thousands of SME staffing businesses as well as South Africa’s largest corporate staffing companies.
Each Association pays a monthly membership fee on behalf of its members and represents their interests at the CAPES table. For more information about each of the Associations and the benefits (and entry criteria) for joining, please click on their logos below
Corporate membership is open to any staffing organisation that wishes to actively participate in industry-level discussions and initiatives. A monthly membership levy, calculated on a percentage of temp payroll, is payable. The primary criteria for consideration at a CAPES corporate member is that the organisation must be a member in good standing of at least one of the four professional Associations (see above).
Benefits of corporate membership includes:
- Access to first-hand information and updates pertaining to the regulatory environment and other industry-related matters, i.e. litigation re Bargaining Councils etc.
- Seat on the CAPES Executive Committee (voting rights) and ability to attend monthly meeting held in JHB affording you the opportunity to directly influence major issues affecting the staffing sector
- Access to general advice/guidance and resources from CAPES Secretariat
- Access to the CAPES Provident Fund. This retirement scheme was set up specifically to offer affordable, accessible and transferable retirement savings for temp workers and those permanently employed within the staffing sector (for more information please see attached brochure)
