Hirsch’s Centurion recently hosted their monthly Domestics Training Course. The course is not only aimed at improving the skills of domestic workers, but this event – like many others, is another way Hirsch’s contribute to community development.
In conjunction with the Training course, a competition is run whereby a Domestic Worker of the month is awarded, and receives a R300,00 gift voucher. The monthly finalist also stands a chance to win the Domestic Worker of the Year competition with a prize of R5000,00 gift voucher, compliments of Hirsch’s.
Said Wendy Beyneveldt, the Employee of this month’s winner – Sylvia Kgobe: “Sylvia came into our lives 3 years ago and has grown in leaps and bounds. One of the amazing skills she has learnt is to cook for us. You don’t always see Angels in real life – but Sylvia is one of them.”
Sylvia was thrilled to receive the recognition, and having recently given birth to triplets, welcomed the voucher – which she immediately utilised towards a new iron and kettle.
After the completion of the training course, certificates were handed out to each of the Domestics.
They general consensus was that they had learnt a lot of new skills, which would definitely be put to good use. Said Employer Kevin Knott, after having received feedback from his Domestic, Sibusisiwe Ndlovu: “Thank you very much – Vusi enjoyed her day so much. Thank you Hirsch’s for this great initiative.”
