Affiliate Network

Affiliate Membership: Overview

The impact of the continuously changing global and local economy, as well as restricting labour legislation, has created a unique demand for flexible resource utilisation in the South African business environment.

The availability of professional, qualified and skilled resources at short notice for fixed long-term and short-term contracts is an even bigger challenge in the local consulting environment with its fluctuating resource demands.

Equally, professional independent consultants and contractors often find it challenging to remain fully utilised throughout the year without the backing and support of a larger organisation.

The LSI Affiliate Network consists of a group of qualified and experienced independent professional consultants and contractors and offers a unique solution to the resource challenges of our clients. Stringent and thorough selection criteria are applied to invite quality resources with proven track records in their respective business disciplines, to join the Affiliate Network.

Being part of the LSI Affiliate Network comes with three distinct benefits:

  • You have the benefit of the collective marketing efforts of the Affiliate Network, as well as the efforts of the LSI's dedicated marketing team. As a result, you are likely to experience improved utilisation, depending on market demand, without having to sacrifice your independence and entrepreneurial flair.
  • Secondly, LSI's financial model not only increases your utilisation opportunities, but also offers significant financial rewards for the referral of opportunities to the Network.
  • Lastly, through our relationship with Highveld PFS, we give you access to group benefits that you would normally only enjoy as employees of a larger organisation, such as Medical Aid, Retirement funds, Income Protection Plans, Financial planning and Taxation advice.

The availability of the LSI Affiliate Network is managed through our customised web-based management software. Affiliates have real-time access to the web-based platform to update their CV's, skills, qualifications, references and availability.
