dc.description.abstractEnglish: HIV and AIDS have a disrupting impact on all businesses by increasing costs and decreasing productivity. This applies, in particular, to South Africa, a country faced with extremely high HIV and AIDS infection rates which, in turn, are exacerbated by social and economic inequalities and poverty. Service-intensive industries such as the hospitality industry are more likely to be directly affected by the effects of HIV and AIDS, as their employees are expected to work long and strenuous hours. This study confirms that the effective implementation of HIV and AIDS policies could mitigate the detrimental effects of the disease in the hospitality industry, and presents the empirical findings of a study conducted at a major South African hotel group.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: MIV en VIGS het ’n ontwrigtende impak op alle besighede aangesien dit koste verhoog en produktiwiteit verminder. Dit is veral van toepassing op Suid-Afrika wat met uitermatige hoë MIV- en VIGS-infeksiesyfers, asook gepaardgaande sosiale en ekonomiese ongelykheid en armoede, gekonfronteer word. Diens-intensiewe bedrywe, soos die gasvryheidsbedryf, kan meer direk deur MIV and VIGS geaffekteer word aangesien daar van werknemers verwag word om lang en veeleisende ure te werk. Hierdie studie bevestig dat die effektiewe implementering van MIV- en VIGS-beleide die impak van die siekte op die gasvryheidsbedryf kan verminder, en lewer die resultate van ’n empiriese ondersoek in ’n vername Suid-Afrikaanse hotelgroep.af
