Danshaw was established in 2003 as an independent Industrial Relations consultancy in Somerset West, Western Cape. Right from the onset we followed the view that the only way to introduce and maintain value added services to our clients was to employ highly qualified professionals. Due to the fact that Industrial Relations in South Africa are largely legislated most of these professionals held a legal degree.
This approach soon paid of and during the latter half of 2003 it became clear to the founders of Danshaw that there was a real desire for a professional focus on Human Resource issues both within its existing client base and in the market. This led to the establishing of Danshaw's Human Resource consulting and Human Resource outsourcing service. The focus of this service is on the commercialization of Human Resources, enabling it to work as partner with the business rather than a support department function.
In order to ensure that there was a holistic approach to Human Resources, Danshaw commenced in 2005 with its payroll service. This service had the added benefit to clients of the organization that it was supervised by qualified Human Resource consultant who in turn was able to advise clienst about issues ranging from cost saving methods, to the benchmarking of income scales.
In 2007 Danshaw introduced the Occupational Health and Safety Consulting service.
At present Danshaw have clients across multiple industries. These clients range from small owner/ managed businesses to listed corporations. Danshaw’s unique infrastructure allows the firm to service these clients across South Africa and neighbouring countries.
At Danshaw we believe in providing our clients with quality, cutting edge services and advice of the highest standard. All our consultants are highly qualified and have vast experience within their respective fields of expertise.
Danshaw further have an internal policy, requiring all professional staff to, on an ongoing basis, do research and have weekly briefing and training sessions regarding new trends in the Labour field.
