Quotes from EES-SIYAKHA clients and workshop delegates
"EES-SIYAKHA has done EE and Transformation projects for three of our companies: Smiths Plastics, Automould and Hesto Harnessess. The training and facilitation received by all managers and EE Committees have contributed in shaping our HR culture and improved our productivity. EES-SIYAKHA has assisted our companies in aligning our EE strategy to our BBBEE Strategy. As a result our companies have managed to meet our customers' BBBEE requirements.
In light of the above and as part of our business strategy, our EXCO has taken a decision to retain EES-SIYAKHA to assist with the management of EE, BBBEE and Transformation projects."
