Assessing my Organisation
Bestmed’s first COVID-19 connect with staff debriefing and touch base session took place the last week of June 2020. The session was facilitated by the internal HR infrastructure of Bestmed. Sixty staff members partook in virtual session following the completion of the Afriforte My Covid19 Experiences; each staff member was in possession of their personal results . The employees enjoyed the touch base session; especially the problem Re-framing part of the debriefing process – many indicated that this provided for a different perspective on their concerns and felt it helped them to put their concerns in a more positive perspective. Thank you for the good work you do and the difference you make in our business!Michelle Ward & Petro Roets

Steinmüller Africa’s Sasol Mill Maintenance (MM) team in Secunda significantly improved their safety record last year after struggling with one Recordable Case (RC) safety incident on average every two months previously.
Aspiring for high performance without ensuring a conducive underlying work climate is like trying to drive a car without an engine. The process enhanced and encouraged the identification of greater opportunities for continuous improvement in our business based on valid and reliable information. Our business has not only became a nicer place to work but we have, and continue to, become even better at what we do.Joseph Rock
