The finalists of the Future of HR Awards, a Topco initiative, have been released, and HIRSCH’S, the biggest independently owned appliance and electronic retail outlet in South Africa, have been shortlisted as one of the six finalists. The winner will be announced on 21 July 2016 in Johannesburg.
“Everything about business, is people related. Whether we are speaking about staff, clients, customers, community, shareholders or any other stakeholder, these are all people”, says Shirley Zinn, Strategic Advisor at Topco Media.
Nicolette Nicholson, Divisional Executive, Financial Manager Payroll at Bidvest Prestige, who is one of the judges said that some of the entrants were most exciting in terms of what she saw in their motivational document, where they brought the human perspective as well as a balance between legislative compliance and the softer elements.
Hirsch’s have been in operation since 1979. They employ over 850 permanent and 400 casual staff.
