Says Chief Executive Officer, Brian Kennedy: “Most of our corporate customers have demonstrated their benevolence in terms of support for our communities, thus making a difference in areas such as helping the homeless, orphanages, and supporting education, health and the environment - to mention a few. Although our industry is much smaller than the corporate market, we believe that every contribution, however small, can make a difference. Measures of social responsibility must be intrinsic to a company's behavior and our employees share our objectives in word, deed and material support. I believe that members from our industry should showcase how they embrace our communities through programmes of benevolence, and in so doing raise the awareness of our industry as a collective.”

Oasys Human Resources Director, Petros Myeni, also responsible for coordinating the company's social responsibility activities, says: “Because of the diversified nature of our company - exhibitions, events, audio visual, electrical and hiring, with offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban - individuals, the groups and the regions all make contributions to communities in one form or another. As a consequence, we have done some internal research and established that since our company was rebranded as Oasys Innovations in 2002, we have spent millions lending a helping hand wherever we can. A fraction of this information was replicated in a pamphlet which covers items such as child care, support for the SAPS, the health and environment sectors, employee volunteerism, material facilitation for congresses with a character of benevolence - and much more.”

Interested persons - customers, suppliers and competitors - should contact Petros Myeni at Oasys Innovations (011) 2102500 or his direct line at (011) 2102546 or e-mail for complimentary copies.
