With National Women’s Day taking place on the 9th of the month, Credico South Africa recently took the opportunity to celebrate the talents and successes of women within the organisation.
Every year on the 9th of August, citizens across South Africa celebrate National Women’s Day, a day that commemorates the 1956 petition against the country’s pass laws. Approximately 20,000 women marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest the law which served to maintain population segregation. Since 1994, National Women’s Day has held great significance in the country, not only to celebrate the bravery and resilience of the women who marched for equality but all women in South Africa today. The day brings to light the issues women are facing today as well as gives the country an opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments and influence.
August was also the month Credico South Africa launched its first ever employee spotlight – a monthly interview with a member of the Credico South Africa team. With National Women’s Day in mind, the firm chose to launch this new feature by giving the spotlight to their talented junior accountant, and previous employee of the year Pamela Sambo.
Growing up in the small township of Thulamahashe in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga, Pamela discovered a passion for accounting and attended the University of Pretoria to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in Financial Management Sciences. In the exclusive interview, Pamela reveals that her success has stemmed from her desire to show that finances aren’t boring and that accountants can also be energetic and fun. She also shared how working with a team of ambitious and committed individuals has helped her maintain a high standard in her work and improve her problem solving and business skills.
Pamela concluded her spotlight by sharing why she believes the sales and marketing industry to be an excellent environment for young people, especially women to find professional success. ‘There are so many opportunities for young and ambitious individuals as long as you have the right spirit of wanting to grow and learn. What you sow will always determine what you will reap.’ Stated Miss Sambo.
Credico South Africa is hopeful that people will find this month’s first employee spotlight inspiring and believe it to be an excellent way to mark National Women’s Day. The organisation is excited to feature more individuals from its talented workforce throughout the rest of 2017 and beyond.Back to all News
