To our most valued Stakeholders,
The world is grappling with humanitarian and economical challenges posed by the Covid-19 virus. Due to this global pandemic, the national enforced lockdown of the country as announced by President Ramaphosa will be effected from 26 March 2020 to 16 April 2020. As we all committed to do everything within our means to reduce the overall number of infections and to delay the spread of infection over the longer period, we hereby confirm that on the 26th March 2020, all our employees and offices will be closing at 15h30 and will re-open on the 17th April 2020.
The increasing barriers on face-to-face business, pose an enormous challenge to all of us, now more than ever, digital is likely to be the clear winner. All our support teams will continuously work remotely from home to ensure sustainability in our support to all stakeholders should there be a need and also to ensure that your skills development needs are attended to. We will be sending continuous communication around the looming Mandatory Grants deadline, do not despair as we are aware that this lockdown period will negatively impact this process.
To help our stakeholders in the financial and accounting services sector learning and growing during the nation-wide lockdown, we will be offering our Budget & Tax 2020 Update via virtual facilitator-led webinars. We have the established capability and systems in place to support this delivery.
We wish to encourage everyone of our Stakeholders to be safe, stay home and lets collectively heed to the call.
Yours in skills development and training,
