Developing and retaining a talented and diverse workforce is a key sustainability issue for Sasol. It is critical to us meeting our global growth objectives, especially given increasing competition for skills in our sector.
We are committed to addressing the skills challenge both within Sasol and externally. Within the group, we have carefully structured employee development and training programmes. Outside Sasol, we make significant investments in various skills development initiatives in the communities in which our employees live. We help develop skills at all levels, from basic literacy through to advanced scientific and technical expertise.
Putting safety first
We are committed to zero harm and in ensuring that in all that we do, we do so safely. Our shared safety value means that we must foster an environment that maintains the health and safety of our people.
We apply an holistic approach to employee health and wellbeing that encompasses a broad spectrum of programmes and campaigns.
Cultivating a high-performance culture
We understand that the organisation’s culture is key to taking Sasol successfully into the future. Together with our values, a high-performance culture and strong team spirit is essential to help us achieve our long-term
We also realise that we must serve a higher purpose than just running our facilities profitably. We can, and are, making a difference in the communities in which we operate, be it through our activities relating to education, health, community service, sports, nature or art.
We know our ability to attract and retain scarce talent is based on providing a safe and stimulating work environment that reflects the diversity of the communities in which we operate, and in which employees’ rights are fully respected.
We acknowledge that diversity is key to our growth and success. At Sasol, diversity signifies all aspects of peoples’ differences and similarities, including race, religion, gender, disability, culture, sexual orientation, nationality, thinking and skills. Embracing a culture of inclusion is critical to ensuring that our diverse talent is managed and nurtured to drive successful business outcomes.
