Why South Africa

About South Africa

South Africa remains one of the world’s favourite tourist destinations. Besides the favourable weather conditions, vast cultures and extensive wildlife, South Africa is also best known for Nelson Mandela, 25 years of peaceful democracy, hosts of the 2010 Soccer World Cup and winners of many international awards in business, sports, arts and culture.

Our business environment rivals any with world class infrastructure for roads, harbours and airports. Our education, health care, financial and banking systems, and living standards rank with the best in the world. South Africa should not be considered for cheap, low cost outsourcing solutions. Rather consider South Africa as a destination for high quality, value for money services based on good quality people who are specialists in ensuring that your service levels are met at the highest standards.

South African Government

The South African Government's commitment to developing South Africa as a services destination for the provisioning of BPO services remains very strong by providing many concessions to encourage the importing of services. Through these concessions, we have seen the cost of voice and data fall, labour regulations brought in line with international standards, the focus on developing the services sector through additional Government support, and many other improvements to assist local businesses to provide top quality service levels at international standards.

Regulating Bodies

South Africa operates as a country with good governance. Regulating bodies are in place and are given the authority to ensure the services industry operates within the regulations. The two key regulating bodies for the BPO sector are:

Telecommunications – The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) is the regulator for the South African communications, broadcasting and postal services sector.

Staffing – The Association of Personnel Service Organisations (APSO) is committed to the upliftment and professionalization of the labour recruitment industry in South Africa. With forty years experience, APSO is well placed to advise member agencies, client companies and work seekers on their dealings within the labour recruitment sector.
