Dr Chris Jardine, Group CEO of Tsebo Solutions Group, Africa’s leading integrated workplace management solutions provider, shares his thoughts with BusinessDay Empowerment on how the real value of his organisation comes from upskilling its people.
“This is where the rubber hits the road for us. In our over 50-year-strong quest to build a brighter future for all, we continue to invest heavily in skills development, youth empowerment, community upliftment, job creation, SMMEs and rural enterprise-development efforts. We believe these key focus areas enable people to support themselves, employ others, create economic stability and develop communities.
From 1983, when we adopted our first affirmative action programme to our current Level 1 BEE status, Tsebo has been a development partner with a transformation ethos that guides us to ensure we develop, employ, capacitate and partner to benefit our local communities.
The end goal is to ensure small businesses are sustainable, profit-able, and trained to the highest-quality standards.”
