CMASA Salary and Benefit survey - participation invitation:

The time has come to conduct the annual CMASA Salary and Benefit review. This year, under the guidance and expertise of the Braxton Group, we are putting in place a more effective process than the previous year, to ensure improved quality and credibility of the data for final review.

We therefore invite you to take part in our annual CMASA Salary and Benefit review.

If your club would like to participate, please send an email to informing them about your participation and provide them with a contact person at your club (i.e. GM/CEO or FM), whom they can contact to determine the specific information applicable to your club, and how this would compare with those of other CMASA club members.

We look forward to implementing this improved process, as it will be of great value for every one of our members.

Kindly advise of your participation by 11th November 2016.

Managing Labour Relations & HR offer – we have the solution for you.

Pons Process Consulting (PPC), in conjunction with CMASA, has designed innovative services to assist Clubs with their specific needs, without inflating or making this more complex than required. Our solutions will assess your HR and Labour risk and identify a way forward to give you the ‘Peace of Mind’ an employer needs.

This service is not a nice to have but an essential feature of business sustainability, as the risk of lack of knowledge and poor decision-making is no excuse for failure to comply with the law. Bad decisions today can make for a bleak future.

So being informed and prepared, will give you ‘Peace of Mind’!
