“SkX is well positioned to partner with clients to add value to their business.”
Lindani Dhlamini, co-founder and CEO
SkX is committed to the strong ethos of corporate responsibility. Our approach is simple: empowering people by harnessing their potential, providing them with skills and opportunities and improving the quality of life of ordinary citizens from disadvantaged backgrounds. The core elements of our strategy include:
PREFERENTIAL PROCUREMENT AND ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT
We adopt a procurement policy to source most of our goods and services from entities that clearly demonstrate an unwavering effort to uplift the disadvantaged communities of our society.
We create equal opportunities for all our employees and will accelerate the development, at all levels, of those previously excluded from meaningful employment. This will include targeted development plans and mentorship programmes.
TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
As part of our mission to uplift our communities, we provide financial support for learners at secondary and tertiary institutions. We empower historically disadvantaged individuals through a variety of training programmes specific to our profession. These initiatives include:
- Learnerships registered with various industry associations such as SAICA and IIA.
- Financial support and mentorship for students completing BComm(Accounting) degrees at university through the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants’ Thuthuka Bursary Fund
- Support for social development programmes run by the Association for the Advancement of Black Accountants (ABASA) who undertake school visits and presentations to promote our profession
- Support for African Women Chartered Accountants (AWCA) which has established a fund for black women wishing to become chartered accountants.
