Celebrating Excellence: (Oct) Employee-of-the-Month

Building a strong company culture has been top on Rethaka's mandate. 

The idea was to bring employees who built the company together with those holding it up on their shoulders. To redefine what a Rethaka woman or man was and how we would work as a formidable team to conquer challenges that lie ahead. 

We decided to introduce a new tradition. Something to honour and celebrate excellence in the company. This was the birth of 'Employee of the Year'. 

With a requirement list drawn and employees excited, our operations supervisor paid close attention to the staff. 

On the 2nd of October, Asnath Mokoena was selected as our very first Employee of the Month.  Loyal, hardworking and consistent were a few of the adjectives used to describe her. Koko Asnath was one of the ladies in the team of four who opened the doors of our factory making the  first batch of Repurpose Schoolbags. 

Before Rethaka, Koko Asnath was a supervisor at Pick'n Pay.

She says Rethaka has been a pleasure for her because she feels empowered as woman to learn, grow and lead.

Koko Asnath says she has learned to be more assertive at Rethaka as well as to engage in long term planning to make the company an even greater success.

Koko Asnath has 2 children and 6 grand children.

This kind, diligent, firm and beautiful woman is a beacon for us all and we are honoured to have her as a part of our family.

Thank you Koko Asnath and Congratulations!
