Abagold ‒ an international cultivator, processor, producer and marketer of quality abalone ‒ invested in Productivity SA’s Workplace Challenge Programme to improve their overall productivity, communication and sense of responsibility among staff.
Through guidance and support, we helped the company realise their goal of becoming a high-performance organisation. As a result, Abagold instilled a practice of self-management and a mindset of continuous improvement and innovation throughout all divisions ‒ and the organisation as a whole.
Continued efforts and a tireless resolve to inspire innovation ensured incredible results for the company, and they reaped the rewards. In 2014, Abagold received Productivity SA’s National Innovation Award, and the Western Cape Regional Productivity Award.
“The award is testament to the dedication of Abagold’s employees. Internally, the programme is referred to as ‘The Abagold Way’, as it defines how we work, rather than being a project with a start and end date. We are grateful to Productivty SA for their fantastic support and guidance.” ‒ CEO of Abagold, Christo du Plessis
