Productivity SA offers productivity awards as a supportive tool that assists in spurring on productivity. The broader objectives of the awards are:
- To promote productivity within South African industry
- To raise awareness about the potential role of productivity in growing and developing our economy.
- To promote Productivity SA programmes and its outcome based solutions in place to assist ailing companies
- To increase South Africa ‘s competitiveness
The concepts of the awards are based on the premise that developing productive capacity, in a broader social context, is concerned with how well we employ all available resources in South Africa to generate well-distributed wealth (both tangible and intangible). As such, all South Africans (not only workers in the formal sector) are central to this process.
