The Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic) in partnership with Productivity SA, and the Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET), will host the second leg of a milestone workshop where client companies will share how they managed to successfully deal with challenges stemming from the new world of work. The workshop will take place on Wednesday, 28 September 2022, at Khoroni Hotel Casino Convention Resort, Thohoyandou in Limpopo from 10:30
The aim of the workshop is to recognise companies that have demonstrated resilience in the difficult economic environment to sustain their businesses through the implementation of Productivity SA‘s Workplace Challenge Programme.
The Workplace Challenge Programme, which is funded by the dtic, is one of Productivity SA’s Business Transformation and Competitiveness Improvement flagship programmes, which aims to improve the productivity and competitiveness of enterprises through improved value chain efficiencies, implementation of clusters for industrial competitiveness, collaborative relations, continuous improvement and establishment of model companies to disseminate processes and lessons.
The Workplace Challenge interventions are targeted at the strategic economic sectors as identified in the Sector Master Plans. The outcome of the workshop is to enable participating companies to compete in the global market and encourage employment security through growth.
According to the Executive Manager of Competitiveness Improvement Services (CIS) at Productivity SA, Ms Amelia Naidoo the milestone workshop is an opportunity to celebrate the impact of the programme and the relationship between Productivity SA and the dtic which spans over 20 years.
“In the past five years the WPC Programme has supported 665 enterprises nationally with 113 enterprises from Gauteng. Productivity improvement is the most effective way of ensuring ongoing competitiveness, long-term business success, economic growth and, consequently, tackling the triple challenges of unemployment, poverty and inequality,” adds Naidoo
