BMG contributes to YES programme

Second Quarter 2021 News & events

BMG – part of the Engineering Solutions Group (ESG) of Invicta Holdings – is participating in South Africa’s Youth Employment Service (YES) Programme, which is a joint initiative between the government and private sector. This aims to create one million work opportunities for unemployed black youth and transform their lives. “Through this inspiring YES Programme, BMG is helping to uplift the lives of 52 young candidates from disadvantaged communities by providing work experience and mentorship for a 12-month period,” explains Lizette Bestbier, group organisation development manager for ESG. “We believe that the business sector has a responsibility to help solve the escalating problem of youth employment.”

The programme offers young people a bridging opportunity between school and the world of work, nurturing the leadership capabilities that are so essential for business success and individual achievement. By providing the opportunity for young people to gain work experience, mentoring and training, BMG equips them with the necessary skills and business ethos for a successful future. “The BMG team has always enjoyed a culture of learning and knowledge sharing, which is why this uplifting programme is a perfect fit with our need to develop commercial skills and nurture personal development. We are very pleased with the high calibre of our trainees and are impressed with their willingness and passion to participate and succeed in this important learning journey,” she concludes.
