We aim to be a socially responsible and profitable organisation through building long term relationships with all interested parties. We always endeavour to keep the highest level of quality in our actions, behaviour and advice. In support of the above statement, we are committed to:
Investing in communities
Hydro-Comp is committed to investing in communities in areas where it is active with projects. For example on Mandela day in South Africa, it contributed in renovating school facilities at Sizani Primary School in the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.
The activities included renovating the toilets (fixing broken windows, install burglar bars, painting and unblocking toilets).
Hydro-Comp staff is seen in the picture dressed in white painting the school with the company’s colours.
“It is these seemingly small insignificant actions that make a difference and it was our answer to Mandela’s call of giving back and creating a better tomorrow”.
Promoting Local Supplies
Hydro-Comp is committed to improving local enterprises and our policy is where possible to purchase from them. For example, in South Africa in 2011, 90% of our purchases have been from BEE companies.
Investing in our staff
We at Hydro-Comp understand that people are our most important assets and we share in the Government’s view that we need to provide meaningful employment to previously disadvantaged people.
Our current structure demonstrates this commitment and we continuously strive to empower them through various capacity building initiatives and encourage them to attend regular studies that increase their knowledge. Studies are subsidised by the company between 50% and 100% depending on their relevance. As an example the company subsidised MBA for four of its managers the last 3 years.
