Our Solutions

A warm welcome back

As I step into my new role as Managing Director of Altron People Solutions, I’d like to reflect on the past year, the lessons we learned and our optimism for this new year.

2020 was undoubtedly a historic year that tested us in ways we could never have imagined. And while it’s clear the pandemic still has a firm grip on our country, Altron People Solutions enters 2021 with a strong sense of hope.

Hope in science, medicine, and technology. Hope in our country’s ability to fight this invisible foe and hope in each of us who have not only weathered this immense storm but have done so while continuing to serve our business and you, our customers in remarkable ways.

I, personally, have to note the recent improvement in performance across the business. The pandemic continues to produce uncertainty, stress and trauma in our world and, by now, we have all been impacted by this virus in one way or another. Despite the challenges we are all facing every day, this is also a time that has brought out the best in our people. I am so proud of the deep commitment and unwavering solidarity I have witnessed in our people.

This commitment was evident when we won three major deals, SASSA, Sasfin and Samsung. As you can imagine, winning these illustrious clients towards the end of 2020 was not only an affirmation of our expertise but of our renewed commitment in delivering bespoke customer solutions.

We also made an impact in the international arena of cybersecurity certification, education, training, and services when we were awarded the 2020 EC-Council Accredited Training Centre (ATC) of the Year award. This is one of the most prestigious awards within EC-Council and the cybersecurity community. Winners are selected from a list of over 2380 training partners in 145 countries worldwide.

To top this off, we continue to attract the best talent in our various industries, which is a true testament to the work we have done to establish Altron People Solutions as a values-driven organisation and an employer of choice.

I do not doubt that 2021 will come with a litany of challenges for our business but we remain ready to tackle them head-on. We are working on strengthening our COVID-19 response efforts and practices to ensure our employees and their families are safe. Part of our effort includes enhanced contact tracing and compliance with the Disaster Management Act and reporting requirements to the National Institute of Occupational Health.

Our number one priority has always been the safety of our employees. We will continue to introduce processes that assist in keeping our environment compliant and reduce the risk of infection. Aside from the rigorous cleaning, monitoring, increased social distancing and remote working, we will also be introducing an online screening app which will reduce the need to manually complete COVID-19 questionnaires at the entrance and help speed up the arrival screening process.

Altron People Solutions is a 25-year-old company that has weathered good times, bad times and everything in-between. With determination and the willingness to work together, I know we will find a wealth of opportunities for positive change.

By cultivating openness, integrity, passion and belonging, we can innovate, transform, and grow. We can deliver innovative and effective digital transformation solutions. We can delight our customers and we can help to bridge the unemployment gap.

We have bold plans for 2021 and the continued partnership with our clients will ensure that Altron People Solutions continues to be a better place to work and a preferred partner for digital transformation solutions. Together, we can make 2021 a better year.
