The right people, to do the job right, the first time…

As part of GPT’s commitment to South Africa, the directors took a decision during 2011 to invest in Enterprise Development in partnership with one of our long service employees. Mr S Phophi (MSc, Pr Sci Nat) was given the opportunity to start a hydrogeological consultancy company in Kwa-Zulu Natal, namely GEM-GPT. The company in which Mr Phophi holds the majority shares (51%) performed exceptionally from date of inception. GPT’s clients benefit through this as it is possible to deliver a professional consultancy service at a competitive price, not mobilising from Gauteng. Through this, GPT shows its commitment towards BEE and thus achieved a score of 25/25 for Enterprise Development (BBBEE). GPT is a level 2 BBBEE compliant company.
