BKCOB | ERF COMMITTEE – REPORT

INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN THE BORDER-KEI CHAMBER OF BUSINESS ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT SERVICES BOOKLET
The Border-Kei Chamber of Business’ Employee Relations Forum (ERF) is embarking on a project aimed at growing business in the Border-Kei region by showcasing local consultants and practitioners that provide services enabling the development of Organisational Capability.
This project forms part of the Organisational Development Portfolio led by Carey-Lynn Kurten and Josh Hayman. It is their belief that a wealth of experience exists in the Border-Kei region, and that if drawn upon, is able to make a significant contribution to business growth in this area.
It is our aim to provide members of the Chamber with a useful resource of consultants and practitioners, to both showcase what “local” has to offer, and to highlight the importance of building Organisational capability.
