Our Core Values guide how we work
Employee Value Proposition
Competitive Employer of Choice
As an affiliate of a German based network of companies we benchmark ourselves with the best companies on offerings to our employees. In 2019 we were audited as belonging to the 100 ‘Top Employers in South Africa and we are fully committed to further develop our offerings. In order to balance our employees’ personal and professional lives we execute a flex-time policy and have since last year extended also the work-from-home policy.
We have developed a “Leadership Compass” that clearly defines the behaviors of our leaders. This framework strongly supports our company culture and is based on four company behaviors: Nurturing Top Performance, Creating Passion, Promoting Communication and Driving Strategic/Operational leadership.
People are the key foundation of our culture. We foster a set of behaviors which builds great talent in our organization, that creates passion, brings strategy to life and finally makes a difference. Our culture is rooted in our Core Values of an “Entrepreneurial Mindset, a “Responsible Attitude-Ethically and Professionally” and “Caring and Respect. We actively contribute to training and development of youth and upgrading school infrastructure. Currently we are funding a digital hub at Alex in cooperation with YES. We regard Corporate Social Responsibility as an obligation. In 2015 we established the Schauenburg Education Trust that provides bursaries to students.
Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
Creating a diverse, inclusive, and bias-free culture with regard to race, gender, age and religion makes us a better company. Diversity fuels our innovation and enhances our engagement with both customers and employees. Inclusion helps drive business success in this rapidly changing world and engages all our employees to maintain a leading position for the benefit of all our stakeholders.
In this rapidly transforming world, sustainable success is based on change management and innovation. Our slogan “Innovation that Saves” reflects exactly that. We expect from our employees to think out of the box, and we encourage them to implement new ideas into new products and processes. We drive digitalisation towards productivity increases and an overall bettered customer experience.
Learning and Development
We give our staff dedicated support and encourage them to take accountability for their own learning and development. We empower our people to take charge of their potential and offer systematic training to teach our future leaders. We strive for sustainable business growth enabled by constant individual growth.
