At Kichose we believe that empowerment goes beyond the indices set in South Africa’s Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment legislation. Being a 100% Black owned and 80% female owned Level 1 contributor, our credentials in that regard are beyond reproach. We take the view that all our employees ought to be empowered in order not only to ensure optimal performance but to ensure that any continuity related risk is mitigated. Our policy is deliberate and clear in this regard. We do this on four levels.
Although we deliberately hire a skilled workforce, we believe in the concept of continuous improvement. Our employees are sent on regular training to sharpen their skills and keep up with global trends in their respective specific roles and responsibilities. We also ensure that they are trained beyond this. They are trained in soft skills and skills that capacitate them for responsibility.
