Why including SA's disabled in the economy is a human rights issue

Tackling your B-BBEE in 2021 - 4 tips to doing more with less

Many companies were hoping for a B-BBEE break in 2020 as businesses and bottom lines struggled with the burden of Covid-19. Unfortunately, this was not to be the case - and nor will it be in 2021. Many B-BBEE champions within businesses will be expected to maintain (or even improve) their current level with ever-increasing budget cuts and cash flow pressure.

Why building your personal brand can help you stand out in the job market
Why building your personal brand can help you stand out in the job market

As hundreds of thousands of matrics write their exams right now, both these students and their families are no doubt wondering what kind of future lies in store for them next year. With our employment rate hitting an all-time high of 30.8%, and the ravages of Covid-19 still being felt across the country, job opportunities are more rare than ever.

You have to separate yourself from the competition and be more appealing to potential employers. It's much easier to achieve this if you create a personal brand for yourself.

3 tips to keep your company culture flourishing while working remotely
3 tips to keep your company culture flourishing while working remotely

How has your internal communication and workplace culture changed during lockdown? Do you think it has changed or has it remained the same? What systems do you have in place to gauge and keep track of your team's morale, engagement and culture? It is important to remember, that your employees are the ambassadors of a company's reputation. Their behaviour and interactions with others are a direct reflection of your company, which ultimately impact your reputation. Do their actions reflect one of pride for the company or are their comments rather snide? "What gets built on the inside, gets reflected to the outside world," shares Chris Bischoff, reputation manager at Reputation Matters. "Reputations are an inside out approach. You can't build a solid reputation by only focussing on external stakeholders and communication channels."
