Quotes from EES-SIYAKHA clients and workshop delegates

"The Electoral Commission has made use of EES-SIYAKHA to assist with its EE process and the development of an EE Plan. The Electoral Commission has also made use of EES-SIYAKHA in other areas such as Performance Management Training and Selection and Recruitment Training. It has been a rewarding experience for all parties involved!" E. Düring, Manager: Human Resources, IEC

Once again, a gracious thank you for the all the professional, efficient and excellent service and, not to mention product, that you and your organisation, EES-SIYAKHA, has delivered in facilitating the conducting of Gauteng Office of the Premier’s EE Analysis and development of its EE Plan. I speak on behalf of the team when I say that we have learned and grew as HR Practitioners, due to us interacting with your associates John Dickerson and Jan Munnik. We have a quality and high standard product, which is easily implementable and can be adjusted in-house. We will most certainly build on this relationship, as we expand ourselves into becoming “Best Practice”: HR Practitioners.
Merles Motlhabane, Director: Internal HR Management, Office of the Premier

"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 for all our companies and also 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 requirement. 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." Adv Sbu Ngcobo, HR Director

"One word only – BRILLIANT!! Thank you for a job really well done!" Greg Schwarp, Head of POS Logistics, Corporate Transactional Banking, FNB

"EES-SIYAKHA consultants were contracted by our organisation to facilitate a number of interventions. They worked with us to complete our EE Action Plan and offered a very detailed and comprehensive approach. This made a significant difference and added substantial value to our organisation. I have found the EES-SIYAKHA approach based on the simple philosophy of keeping the customers need as number one and that their Leadership Team is 100% involved in the both planning and execution phase of any project. Everyone is easy accessible and nothing is too much trouble." TJ van der Merwe, HR Manager, Services Seta

"I just want to thank you for an excellent workshop last week.  I not only learnt a lot but also thoroughly enjoyed the discussions and the way you handled them. Absolutely excellent two days!" Karen Redelinghuys, Office of the Vice-Principal, UNISA

The training was excellent. I would advise that other dti employees who are interested in the know-how and understanding of EE attend the training, especially those involved with recruitment. I liked the practical examples given and the applicability of the course. It clearly outlined the EE transformation issues and provided a holistic view of how EE fits in and affects transformation as a whole. I especially appreciated the fact that everybody participated in the training and all the professional advice given.
