The Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator

SEPTEMBER 03, 2016

With two out of three South Africans between 18 and 28 are unemployed, Spier is keenly aware of the need to create job opportunities for young people. It partnered with Harambee in July 2014, recruiting 18 candidates. 83% of these have been retained, working at the Spier Hotel, Eight restaurant, and Eight to Go – a marked improvement on 2013’s turnover rate of 77% for entry-level employees. In September 2015, a new intake of approximately 14 Harambee candidates will begin work.
