Cerebos is committed to black economic empowerment (BEE), which it regards as both a national and business imperative. This is not simply a philosophical or theoretical endorsement. It is a strategic priority for all Cerebos operations. Cerebos has embarked on a campaign to become the first fully compliant BEE salt manufacturer in South Africa and continue to drive the process into the future. Cerebos has made great steps to achieving this goal.
The social upliftment of all Cerebos employees and previously disadvantaged individuals in the Eastern and Western Cape is also a key focus to the organization. The company encourages an innovative culture and behaves like a family loyally supporting their employees and it’s strong brands. The working environment is dynamic and empowered and each Cerebos employee is nurtured and given the opportunity to make a difference. Cerebos also has an educational fund administered by employees and Management.
Cerebos is implementing Mission Directed Work teams (MDW) under the guidance of the NPI(National Productivity Institute) in the existing production facility in an effort to empower the work force with better skills and knowledge to drive the company forward together. This program allows individuals with initiative to stand out and take on more responsibility within the business.
Language and writing skills have also been addressed and all employees are encouraged to attend language and writing classes provided by the company in an effort to increase literacy. Cerebos has always supported the communities in which they operate. The focus has always been on the upliftment of individuals and groups.
