Thank you to everyone who attended the rebranded Talent Cafe presentation on 28 Feb in Windhoek and 2 March in Walvis. Your participation and conversation were really appreciated.

Some interesting facts shared in this presentation.

Employees who feel most able to benefit from pay for performance tend to be attracted to organizations that offer it.

There is a link between better benefits and a company’s ability to attract and retain employees. While retirement and health-care plans generally have similar attraction and retention effects, more generous and secure retirement programs can create a stronger
employer-employee bond.
