The Labourteq™ Digital Employee Relations story

Our Story 

The genesis of Labourteq™ can be traced back to the early 2000’s when Dr. Laurentia Truter and Chantel Heron met at a large professional services firm, where they spent many years collaborating in the areas of employment law and HR. From the word go, they not only enjoyed working together, but had loads of fun, in the process recognising their like-mindedness and similar values.

Following various career moves, the two reconnected in 2018. Shortly after their reunion, a single conversation resulted in the birth of the Labourteq™ vision, namely to:

  • Fundamentally transform the way in which ER was approached in South African workplaces by moving the discipline into the digital realm, and
  • Build a high quality, intuitive ER solution that not only reduces risks and costs, but becomes a business tool that companies love to use.

Throughout the entrepreneurial journey, the collaboration has gone from strength to strength with Labourteq™ entering the market in 2021.

Both Chantel and Laurentia have a healthy disregard for mediocrity, love to innovate, and believe that a fair balance must be struck between the interests of employers and employees in tough situations, like ER processes. Ethical behaviour in all their business dealings is key.

Take no short cuts…

Employees must be granted a fair opportunity to be heard and state their case in full, even when the misconduct was of a very serious nature, failing which they may end up paying compensation to a guilty employee.
