Education programmes

Education and training are key to personal development, whether inside our company or in the community.

Programmes & initiatives

Our commitment to high quality standards in the workplace has enabled us to share management practices and transfer skills across borders. These programmes address vastly differing needs around the world, from employee-volunteer teacher projects for children in deprived areas of South Africa, to sponsorship of major arts exhibitions and cultural events.
