Its purpose is to increase overall productivity and improve organisational structures, but most importantly, save and retain jobs and make the organisation productive through various interventions.
This programme is fully funded by the South African government, while the Ossymdor Group has been retained by Productivity SA as consultants, to assist with this process. Click on the link to complete the survey.
