Enabling job creation for 35 years

For every investment into a small and medium enterprise (SME), an average of nine jobs has been created.

As South Africa continues to experience challenging economic conditions, with economic growth forecast predicted at just 0.7% for 2016, the topic of business productivity once again arises, especially in light of the upcoming public holiday ‘season’. This is according to Gerrie van Biljon, executive director of Business Partners Limited (BUSINESS/PARTNERS), who explains that local labour productivity levels have a direct impact on economic growth in the country.

Building a business is not a sprint, but a marathon, with hills, headwinds, heat and dust. Those entrepreneurs who succeed are not necessarily the fastest or the strongest, but those who are able to endure the ups and downs.

South Africa is eager to find solutions to the current problems that face the education sector ranging from lack of adequate schooling and accommodation facilities to a declining matric pass rate. According to Business Partners Limited (BUSINESS/PARTNERS), to complement government initiatives, a potent mix of passion for education and an entrepreneurial mind-set is needed to turn the current education crisis into a sustainable opportunity within the industry.

In light of the challenging economic climate, South African entrepreneurs have been cautioned to buckle up for what is predicted to be a challenging year. In order to be prepared for what may face them in 2016, business owners are advised to dedicate the next few weeks to the planning of budgets and cash-flow, which are both crucial tools required for the survival of any business.
