Introduction and purpose
A team of passionate South Africans are investigating setting up a community of skilled and experienced people over 50. It will create meaningful work opportunities for these people and provide the market with cost effective skills and experience. It will allow corporates, SMEs and NGOs to find mentors to develop and grow the people in their organisation, to fill skills gaps on a short term contractual basis and to tap into the collective wisdom to help with economic and social transformation. Please can you take the time to answer this survey to help us understand the landscape of the current workplace and your challenging current and future skills demands.
