New Eskom board is no quick fix for a turnaround.

The government has announced a shake-up of the Eskom board, replacing its chair and appointing 13 non-executive directors who collectively bring engineering, energy policy and delivery, and accounting expertise.

Unconscious bias - how it limits our growth and your company's growth.

Nowadays, humans have great minds that are open to diversity and inclusion - but how does unconscious bias affect the workplace? No one is perfect, and people can be subject to implicit bias without even noticing. That's right, you might be a little racist or discriminating without even knowing it.
With that in mind, unconscious bias in the workplace can lead to a series of setbacks between employees. Bias at work may prevent the right people from advancing in a certain position, without even being related to their skills.

More trouble for ‘NEW’ SAA as it loses licences to important routes.

South African Airway has reportedly lost 20 licences to routes that serve domestic and international passengers.
The Air Services Licensing Council (ASLC) revoked the licences after the troubled airline was unable to prove that it had sufficient personnel, facilities and equipment to service the routes, according to aviation analyst Phuthego Mojapele.
Speaking to ENCA, Mojapele said that the airline wished to keep access to 52 routes and made representations to the council but could not sufficiently justify having 20 of the licences when the routes were not in operation.

INSIDE YOUR POCKET: Metropolitan helps instill a culture of saving within Mzansi

INSIDE YOUR POCKET - Metropolitan helps instill a culture of saving within Mzansi by changing the traditional savings approach.

Saving money towards the achievement of a financial goal, retirement or simply to have access to funds during an emergency is universally accepted as something wise and worthwhile. And yet, most South Africans do not save. In fact, in this current economic climate, many South Africans have little funds left once they pay the bills, and other non-negotiables such as rent, food and their children’s school fees.

The truth is saving is hard, and the common savings advice that we get from experts may seem unobtainable at times. For example, start saving from as little as R5 a day or how you should save 10% of your salary each month. This is great advice, however, practically applying it in your life is impossible, especially if you’re doing it alone.

In conversation with Steinheist director, Richard Finn Gregory.

A new three-part documentary by the producers of Devilsdorp on the fall of Steinhoff highlights not only the infamous dealings of Markus Jooste but also how corruption in the private sector all too frequently flies beneath the radar.
The first episode of the docuseries by production company Idea Candy and directed by Richard Finn Gregory, was released on Showmax on 22 September, with the next two parts set to drop on the following Thursdays. The series profiles Markus Jooste, whose years of corruption led to investigations into “accounting irregularities” and his resignation as CEO in 2017, which wiped billions of rands from the JSE – the biggest corporate scam in South African history.

Governance lessons learned from the Eskom crisis.

In this opinion piece, Nelson Mandela University Infrastructure Development & Engagement Unit associate Bongani Mankewu writes that an Industrial Council Body needs to be enacted into law for the appointment of boards of directors at State-owned enterprises (SOEs) and the monitoring of the Industrial Development Programme.
South Africa's Eskom crisis illustrates the detrimental impact of the vested interests of the various stakeholders in the governance ecosystem of SOEs. The vested interests enhance the negation of South Africa's development being primarily driven by infrastructure - power, transportation, telecommunications, water, and sanitation.
