Derrick Netshitungulu, Jason Peng, Simon Mothoa and Zamani Dube were recently recognised for going beyond the scope of their normal activities to complete a project on time. Many additional hours were worked to ensure completion without any complaints, working long days, weekends and under very tight deadlines & difficult circumstances.

In line with our values of creating an employee-centred culture that supports the Company’s Mission, with all employees sharing and living our values and creating a positive, high performing and successful organisation, as Management we wanted to show our formal appreciation for the type of behaviour we would like to encourage and as exhibited by them.

We thank these employees for their hard work and dedication and being an example to all of us.”
