THREE deserving Eastern Cape companies walked away with awards at the annual Eastern Cape Regional Productivity Awards held at Red Ribbon Papers in King Williams Town on Friday, 21 June 2019.
According to the organisers, Productivity SA, the regional awards aim to provide a platform to inspire a competitive and productive South Africa. It said productivity improvement was 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,” the organisation said in a statement.
The awards were divided into three categories with all finalists receiving certificates and the winners also receiving the productivity golden awards. The winners were:
- Emerging Sector – Mazoyi Group (Pty) Ltd
- Co-operative Sector – Xhobani Multi Purpose Primary Co-operative
- Public Sector – SEDA Nelson Mandela Bay
