In this four-minute clip, taken from a fascinating half-hour interview, one of South Africa’s most highly regarded entrepreneurs and the CEO of Imperial Holdings reveals why he believes businesses survive by looking after the needs of all of their stakeholders – from staff to government.
“Most people come to work everyday with 40% energy levels and most companies have knocked that down to 20% by lunchtime. My view is if we can turn that up to 60% by lunchtime through good leadership by creating environments where people want to give their best and release their energy, then we’re three times better off than our competitors… it’s about the people,” he adds.
