  • Fatima van Toorn and her experienced HR team have compiled our Employment Contract templates as well as our HR Policies, HR Procedures and HR Supporting Documents and have provided HR and Labour Consulting services to our Company over the past four years. This has been during a time of huge growth in our company, and I could not have asked for a better partner to help me. One of the most demanding parts of expanding a business is managing people.
