People, planet, profit
We believe in the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit. Our employees are passionate about business transformation and care about giving back to society. This commitment is evidenced through how we operate and what we do.
The Performance Hub is 51% owned by a BBBEE Trust called the Community and Individual Development Trust. We channel our profits into this Trust. The Trust funds tertiary education bursaries for disadvantaged young people in South Africa. We are proud of our broad based black ownership and the fact that we are contributing to socio-economic transformation through people development.
As a client, you are also playing a role in the lives of these young people in South Africa, contributing to their upliftment and the Skills Development Agenda in our country.
Since early 2012, we have contributed over R1.1 million to Corporate Social Investment Initiatives. Here are some of the projects we have supported:
- The Akani Diepsloot Foundation, a Foundation Phase school and Aftercare Centre for hundreds of children from the Diepsloot community, with a vision of nurturing them spiritually, mentally, physically & emotionally, enabling them to become informed, balanced & productive citizens of our country.
- The Maharishi Foundation, an institution that makes tertiary education accessible in South Africa and provides the financing, education access, skills development pathways, personal development tools and a supportive environment so that students can achieve success.
- The Monyetla Project. This Work Readiness Programme is a demand-driven skills development programme which is employer-led (comprising employers, recruitment agencies, and training providers) to ensure that at least 70% of successful beneficiaries are employed for a minimum period of 6 months. It focuses on getting young unemployed people work ready through formal training that is accredited.
- We are currently supporting a dedicated and talented young PhD student by providing him with the resources he will need to complete his studies. We have had the pleasure of working with this young man for some time now and have been touched by his commitment, passion and drive. We want to ensure that he has the resources available to realise his visions and we look forward to working with him in the future and witnessing him achieve the success he has worked so hard for.
We are conscious of our carbon footprint, and have committed to only using paper from sustainable resources for all our printing requirements. In addition, as an ongoing initiative, we regularly plant trees on behalf of the clients we do business with, as a demonstration of our committment to caring for our environment.
