What does your company do?
Bee Recruitment was established to focus specifically on black economic empowerment recruitment and specializes in supplying contract, temporary and permanent placements across various industries. We focus on developing meaningful partnerships with our clients, providing solutions rather than just people. Flexibility and dedication to both clients and candidates, is the key to our success.
What has been your biggest success?
Securing the tender in 2005 to supply ABSA with staff to pay out the social grants in the Western Cape. We had to employ 200 people in various previously disadvantaged communities. In 2011, we were given the opportunity to supply staff to Media 24. We were one of three service providers. Since 2014 we have been the only service provider. Even though we are a small company, we have secured business from various key clients due to offering an unrivaled quality of service, through building long term relationships based on trust and confidence. We understand that the success of our business depends totally on quality, knowledge and commitment from our team.
What has been your biggest hurdle?
We found ourselves in a situation where we had all our "eggs in one basket". In 2012, when ABSA was not re-awarded the social grant tender, we also lost our contract which constituted 80% of our business. This was a wake up call to re-strategise the business and actively develop our client base.
