We believe that our values underpin our business success, providing a sustainable foundation for growth.
Our values permeate all aspects of our activities and are reflected in a business culture that promotes quality of life, delivers sustainable social and environmental management, honours all contractual obligations, and fosters loyalty among our employees, partners, clients and shareholders. Corporate governance remains a dynamic issue that requires ongoing implementation and must be embedded in an organisation’s culture.
At GladAfrica, we recognise that as we grow and evolve our corporate governance practices need to develop as well.
Taking cognisance of our desire to improve our corporate governance practices, a board restructuring process was undertaken in 2014. The board also makes use of the expertise and knowledge of external and internal invitees, resulting in eight board-meeting participants in total. In addition, a legally qualified company secretary has been appointed to oversee and offer advice to the group.
GladAfrica is committed to interacting constructively with its stakeholders and remaining socially relevant. This is critical to sustaining the group’s success.
The group’s stakeholder management approach involves the optimal application of the organisation’s resources to build and maintain good relationships with its stakeholders. This helps the group to understand the expectations of society, minimise reputational risk and form strong partnerships, all of which underpin our business’ sustainability.
