D & S Solutions is a small owner-based business aimed at supplying an affordable human resources solution to small and medium businesses that cannot afford the costly expense of employing their own HR professionals. Small and medium businesses that do not have an in-house HR department can incur huge costs for CCMA referrals, fines from government bodies for non- compliance to labour laws, costs of absenteeism not being managed and high employee turn-over.
