IT Leading Employer
On the 3rd November 2010, Yellowtail received a call from Tony Parry – the Executive Director of the Computer Society of South Africa. Tony was to deliver the news that Yellowtail Software was one of three finalists in the IT Leading Employer of 2010.
This came as a great surprise as we had not set out to compete for this award but were rather participating in order to identify the areas that we as a company could improve.
Once the excitement set in (as this is a great honour), the logistics of booking flights, hotels and car rentals were on the way. Marius du Toit (General Manager) and I (Emmelia Fouché – HR Officer) were set to land in JHB for the CSSA Presidents Award taking place on the 09th November.
The breakfast was an opportunity for the CSSA to reflect on the year past and to recognise individuals in the IT industry for their contributions.
The award categories were:
IT Personality of the Year Visionary CIO of the Year,
Distinguished Service in ICT Award and of course
the IT Leading Employer.
We are proud to announce that Yellowtail Software received the IT Leading Employer award.
