AFRI-MATION When our clients affirm the work we are doing

We love receiving positive confirmation from our clients that we are doing a good job. It re-affirms that we are on the right track with our customer-centric approach to doing business. Thank you to everyone who calls or emails us to compliment us on work well done across all the service areas of our business.

Good day

I’m not sure if I should be sending this to this email address as I found this on the board at Durban Station.

I don’t think many people complement people that work hard.

I would like to complement the young lady manager at Durban station. The guy at the gate calls her mam.

Had issues with vagrants in the parking, and there was no security to assist. She stepped in, wasn’t afraid to chase them away and apologised to me and made sure that the staff took care of me.

I just want to tell her thank you keep up the good work.

Kind regards, Mrs R. Stevens

The employee, Vaneshnee Govender, is our Parking Manager in the Durban Region. Well done, Vaneshnee!

AFRI-PROFILE

We profile a member of our team in every issue of our newsletter. This month’s spotlight is ANELISIWE MPAKA, our face of AfriServ, our RECEPTIONIST.

Tell us something about yourself in a few lines.

Thank you very much for giving me this golden opportunity. My name is Anelisiwe Mpaka and I am hard working, a go-getter, and an independent lady. I am absolutely passionate about working with people.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

I have a few reasons to get out of bed in the morning; my very first reason would have to be my daughter, Oluhle; I am privileged to provide and care for her. My second and equally important reason is to pursue my own goals for achieving success, both personally and professionally. I always strive to do better and to be a better person, and add value to my community.

If you could change one thing that could make the world a better place, what would it be?

It would definitely have to be crime, and the high levels of it in KTC, which is part of the greater Nyanga Township, where I live. I have been exposed to too many violent crimes in my area. Crime is one element in our society I would definitely love to change.

What is your role at AfriServ?

I am the receptionist here at AfriServ. However, my role is not limited only to the role of receptionist (phone calls, boardroom bookings, stationery orders, and such); I also assist with weekly, bi-weekly, and fortnightly payroll for all our on-site staff.

What does working at AfriServ mean to you?

Working at AfriServ means another opportunity for me to be able to provide for my daughter, as well as a chance to learn and to grow as an individual. Moreover, it is an opportunity for me to pursue my dreams.3ecc0327-7346-4cc0-99f7-b75b310fdc09

AFRI-WASTE UPDATE

We partner with Grand Foods Bakery on a separate-at-source pilot project

In our drive to play a more active role in our customers’ waste management journeys, we partnered with Grand Foods Bakery, the manufacturers of Dunkin’Donuts doughnuts in South Africa, in a pilot separate-waste-at-source programme. The initiative is a response to reduce overfilled landfill sites since separation-at-source eases the strain on our natural resources, contributes to our Green Economy, and creates jobs and business opportunities in the waste sector. During July, the pilot project facilitated the reduction of waste to landfill by 76%, thereby reinforcing Grand Foods Bakery’s commitment to doing business responsibly through their waste recycling initiatives in order that they may impact the environment in a positive way. Of the 2.03 Tonnes of waste that were recycled in July, only 0.72 Tonnes were sent to landfill. For further information regarding waste management, please contact Junaid Kader on 021 418 4000 or mjkader@afriservsa.co.za.
