Management.

Tsebo is widely recognised as one of the most progressive workplaces in the outsourcing industry. Every middle and senior manager in the Group is encouraged to attend an 18-month Management Advancement Programme (MAP) course run by the Gordon Institute of Business Sciences. This, together with our outcomes-based training courses for managers and supervisors, creates a steady pipeline of skilled junior and middle managers – from which the future pool of senior management then emerges.

Tsebo’s senior management ensure all stakeholders in the organisation are aligned. Their experience and understanding of the industry have enabled them to create workplaces where all employees grow with the business. With its mix of youth and experience, hands-on experience across the Group’s businesses and backing from our company alumni, Tsebo’s leaders steer the organisation with purpose and passion, driving performance.

Staff.

Tsebo’s growth has always been linked to equal opportunity employment. Our starter job profiles, coupled with the growth and training opportunities from within the Group, make us one of Africa’s most trusted employment providers.

Our managers and staff count among the most qualified in the industry and receive continuous training to a standard of tireless improvement. Our Tsebo Skills Academy (TSA) is accredited by THETA (the Tourism and Hospitality Education and Training Authority).

The TSA has trained more than 20,000 people over the last 3 years. Massive job creation has also taken place within the Group’s divisional operations, with the organisational headcount growing from 10,000 to more than 34,000 over the past ten years.

Support Services.

Tsebo’s operating divisions, array of marketplace brands and national, regional and Africa-wide operations are supported by strong central Group structures. These structures manage and execute all the supporting services needed by the Group as a whole, as well as individual divisions and companies. This includes everything from marketing to accounts, IT to helpdesks.

Tsebo’s on-going training and development means that only highly skilled professionals, following specialised processes and systems, staff our central structures and that these people are motivated and given the opportunities to fulfil their potential within the Group.

Our powerful cloud-based systems and processes are built for African conditions. This results in reduced reliance on unreliable data networks as well as improved system functionality and a front-end that is adaptable to specific local needs. Our integrated systems architecture is easy to customise and cost-effective to manage, robust and simple to deploy, and is ideal for overcoming challenges such as interrupted links, distributed networks and numerous languages.

Suppliers.

Tsebo operates a highly integrated value chain, minimising cost and optimising efficiency at every stage. This is only possible because of the Group’s collaboration with its stable supplier base.

Tsebo procurement and operational teams have intimate knowledge of their supplier operations, and work with them in planning for mutual benefits. This collaboration of systems, processes, skills programmes and market knowledge delivers mutual benefits and enhances value for clients and customers alike.

We have been highly successful in creating supplier networks, often in rural and underdeveloped areas. This includes training and assisting small local suppliers to become self-sustaining businesses that can service our contracts and other businesses in their communities. This ability to create supplier networks from scratch enables us to operate under harsh and uncertain conditions without relying on formal supply networks.
