Corporate HR Philosophy "The Human Factor"

Our core Human Resource strategy is to add value in all spheres of our activities by improving the potential of our employees and our business processes. It is our objective to ensure that all Human Resource initiatives help deliver business results.

Commitment to Service is at the very heart of Aitken Spence, giving nourishment to every aspect of its existence and future plans. A nucleus of dynamic people who have translated this into business practices has led the Group on its continuing rise. This dynamism provides the energy to enable the Group to continue to build on its strong roots and maintain consistent growth, venturing globally with ambitious targets and achieving results.
Therefore developing a culture and ethos of upward mobility is essential to keep our people factor in line with our vision.

Consequently, the conventional role of human resource management has evolved to take on the new mission of a business partner in the development of both self and organisation.
