“Everything we do must be done safely – our business is not a gamble, it is deliberate.”
– Isaac Kelekele Kasonga, President – Promont SA
Our people are tenacious, trustworthy and loyal. This is what sets us apart: We will pass on a “quick buck” to safeguard our clients’ interests and ensure the provision of top-quality products and services. This is why a partnership with PROMONT is a partnership for Life.
We learn from and respect the cultures in which we work. We value and demonstrate respect for the uniqueness of individuals and the varied perspectives and talents they provide. Our diversity is therefore our strength and our people are our most valuable asset.
Promont expects every person who works for the Company to treat colleagues, business partners, customers and suppliers with dignity and respect and to encourage the same treatment in return.
As responsible corporate citizen, Promont is conscious of its obligation to support the wellbeing and empowerment of its people. This includes all its stakeholders, from employees and suppliers to its customers and the members of communities in which it operates.
This approach benefits the group’s key stakeholders while also delivering strategic advantage to our business. We recognise that our employees ultimately execute our strategy, represent our brand and deliver our products to customers and consumers. In fulfilling their critical roles, we also acknowledge their potential to become a liability: the ability of our employees to perform would be significantly diminished if they are not given the ability to hone important skills, access to wellness support and incentive to excel. It is therefore essential that we provide our workforce with the tools they need to succeed.
A balanced complement of staff-members ensures for superior, well-rounded service to our clients.
We realize that without the active participation in our communities and without their buy-in into our business strategies, we are undermining our own success. We therefore engage our local communities regularly in order ensure their involvement and support. The more we trust and are trusted, the more our business thrives and grows: Because we are trusted, we can influence our communities to adopt farming practices, that in turn make our processing activities more efficient.
Participation – through dialogue with our communities, our people, our investors and our customers
