We are growing together?
Our culture is called Sikhula KunYe and means “We are Growing Together”, so it’s no wonder that all our people (or Dynamos, as we call them) greet each other with a ‘high five’ instead of a normal handshake.
Why choose a career at PEP?
At PEP, we know that it’s impossible to grow and prosper in the way that we do without the support and commitment of our Dynamos. It’s no wonder that we’ve named our human resources department “People Support”! Because we recognise that our Dynamos form the cornerstone of our business, we put a lot of effort into recognising talent and encouraging development.
Our Dynamos are also provided with company benefits like:
Recognition of performance
Training & Development
One of these great benefits is Training & Development, which is seen as an investment at PEP. All Dynamos have access to high quality training and development opportunities to effectively master the demands of their jobs and to prepare them for growth in their careers. We pride ourselves in our succession planning initiatives on all levels within the business, and this allows us to recognise talent internally as well as external to PEP.
Equality, fairness & healthy balance
We firmly believe in equality and fairness and recognize the importance of diversity in the workplace. PEP therefore strives to attain equitable employment in all areas of the business. And because we respect our Dynamos’ personal lives and know that they have other obligations outside of work, we encourage a healthy and balanced approach to work and life. We provide integrated Employee Assistance Programmes for trauma and HIV-related emergencies, as well as other exciting initiatives to further encourage wellness. Our Values of Honesty, Passion and Resourcefulness are important ingredients to ensure the longevity of our culture. You know our brand, you know our products, but do you know who we really are and why you should consider working at PEP? This is why… We are proud that our Dynamos enjoy working at PEP and feel privileged that they decide to invest their time and energy into making PEP the successful company that it is. Being a Dynamo is about more than just being an employee. It’s about becoming part of the largest single-brand retailer in Southern Africa - a company that has made a difference in the lives of many people, and will continue to do so for a very long time to come.
