Globalisation and current employment situation in South Africa: An exploratory enquiry
AbstractGlobalisation is a broad concept that has continuously impacted various aspects of human endeavours. Globalisation has influenced the realignment of business strategies as well as impacted the availability of jobs in many countries. In modern organisations, managers must understand how current globalisation impacts employment situations. Since the dawn of contemporary globalisation in the early 1990s, several path breaking advances have emerged. These advances have also impacted the ways works are coordinated in the workplace. For instance, recently the use of independent contractors has increased as opposed to permanent appointed employees. As a matter of fact, globalisation has impacted employment situations in several ways. Hence, the current paper is an attempt to explore how globalisation has impacted employment situations in South Africa. The main finding of the paper revealed that there is a rising trend in job insecurity in most organisations owing to advanced sophisticated technologies and the utilisation of more atypical employment pattern in the form of casualisation.
