The Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of Southern Africa (SEIFSA) reminds manufacturers that are yet to submit entries for its annual Awards for Excellence that the 28 April deadline date is looming.

“There is now only one week left for companies operating in the metals and engineering sector to submit their entries for the seven SEIFSA Awards for Excellence categories and we urge them to do so before it is too late or miss out on the great opportunity to be celebrated by industry peers,” SEIFSA CEO Kaizer Nyatsumba said.

Now in their 6th year of existence, the SEIFSA Awards for Excellence were born out of the need to celebrate excellence in the metals and engineering sector at a time when tough economic conditions, underpinned by slow growth and unemployment make it difficult to compete, let alone excel.

Mr Nyatsumba said SEIFSA will present the:

  • The Most Innovative Company of the Year Award, to an organisation that has shown the best level of innovation in research and development or production;
  • The Most Transformed Company of the Year Award will be received by a company that recorded the highest transformation level in ownership as well as the composition of its Board of Directors, Executive Management and Managerial Team. This category pits companies employing fewer than 100 people against those of similar size, and companies employing more than 100 people against others of similar size;
  • The Health and Safety Award of the Year will be offered to a company with the best legal compliance record in Health and Safety or the lowest Lost-Time Injury Frequency rate between July 2018 and December 2019;
  • The Artisan Development Award will go to the company that trained the highest number of artisans between July 2018 and December 2019;
  • The Environmental Stewardship Award will go to a company that has successfully implemented greening initiatives in its day-to-day business operations during the period under review.
  • The Customer Service Award of the Year will be presented to a company rated the highest in customer service performance during the period July 2018 – December 2019.
  • Entries are also invited from companies whose Corporate Social Investment (CSI) programme/s between July 2018 and December 2019 had a major impact on the lives of their beneficiaries.

Mr Nyatsumba said awards entrants will be assessed on their performance in the period 1 July 2018 to 31 December 2019. He said entries are open to members of Associations federated to SEIFSA as well non-members.

The 6th SEIFSA Awards for Excellence ceremony will take place on 28 May 2020 at Summer Place in Boksburg.
