Radiating Abundant Energy
Our dynamic and visionary leadership team entrenches the principles of empowerment and diversity into the ethos of Tsogo Sun. This is clearly visible in the demographics of our employees, which reflect the demographics of our diverse rainbow nation. Over the last few years, middle to top management have comprised more than 50% black people, of which over 40% have been female managers. Being a Level 2 contributor to B-BBEE in South Africa demonstrates the spirit in which Tsogo Sun actively contributes to empowerment and transformation through the seven elements of the B-BBEE Scorecard. Our dedication to recruitment practices that seek to promote leaders from previously disadvantaged backgrounds is evidenced by our management diversity performance. Furthermore, the creation of the Tsogo Sun Academy in 2009 assists in facilitating and fast tracking the acquisition of skills by our employees.
In line with our economic empowerment strategy, the Tsogo Sun Book-A-Guesthouse programme was developed in 2005 to provide support to emerging entrepreneurs in the tourism industry. Year-on-year improvements can be seen in the size of the portfolio, the quality of member establishments and the sustainable nature of the businesses supported by the programme.
We also participate actively in the formation and governance of industry bodies such as the Tourism Business Council of South Africa, the South African Tourism Board and the Casino Association of South Africa, through the provision of time, effort and intellectual contributions from our top management and leadership.
