We have now sold over 24 000 copies, 24 069 as at the end of January. I would also like to thank our neighbours, Swaziland, Botswana and Namibia who are also selling the book in their local bookshops.
Tryphina Moleke, MD of MHCI http://www.mhci.co.za, bought 20 copies of the book for young graduates who are on a learnership program at Sandoz and Novartis at her own cost! She requested the learners to give us summaries of their key learnings from the book and I had the opportunity to present to them thereafter. I’m so happy and encouraged by how the learners maximized this opportunity to their benefit. Please look out for their summaries as I will be sharing these with you in the near future. As a result of this intervention, the learners took decisive action, taking up various investment options to suit their needs e.g. Emergency Funds, Tax-Free investments , life covers and RAs.
The companies created an environment that was safe for them to discuss their concerns and fears regarding money and set clear financial goals for their futures. I have no doubt in my mind that these young graduates are well on their way to enjoying financial security because someone cared enough to expose them to this critical information.
Tryphina offers learners work readiness coaching programme that enables them to transition from the world of school into the world of work successfully. The programe equips the learners with skills to communicate effectively, manage conflict constructively, increase their visibility and contribute to the organisation within a short space of time. In addition to this, she deems it fit that learners should be equipped with financial skills that empower them with knowledge and skills to manage their personal finances from the onset.
We all know the negative impact financial insecurity has on each individual and how it contributes towards employees’ performance, morale and ultimately productivity.
We would like to invite you to give us a call to discuss how we can add value to your learnership programme through these value-adding interventions that have proven to have long lasting effect for both the learner and the host company.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
