Productivity Awards for productive businesses
The Eastern Cape Regional Productivity Awards winners will be announced at a function to be held at Red Ribbon Papers in King Williams Town on Friday 21 June 2019. The entity responsible for promoting productivity within South Africa, Productivity SA, will award best performers at a ceremony which will culminate in the regional award winners participating in the National Productivity Awards to be held during the Productivity Month in October 2019.
The regional awards provide a platform to inspire a competitive and productive South Africa. Productivity improvement is considered the most effective way of ensuring ongoing competitiveness, economic growth and the creation of decent employment.
South Africa currently faces major challenges such as a need to create employment opportunities, stimulate economic growth and reduce poverty. If South Africa is to reduce unemployment and poverty whilst stimulating economic growth, the country should place emphasis on developing productive capacity in all sectors of the economy.
Productivity SA is established in terms of section 31(1) of the Employment Services Act, No. 4 of 2014 as a juristic person with a mandate to promote employment growth and productivity, thus contributing to South Africa’s socio-economic development and economic efficiency. Members of the media are invited to the Eastern Cape Regional Productivity Awards and Milestone Workshop event as follows:
