This women’s month, let’s celebrate these women who show up every day and ensure that things get done. They are wives, mothers, sisters, friends, cashiers, till packers, managers, and so much more. Their collective energies harnessed 40 years has been instrumental in the Group growing from eight small stores in the Western Cape to 2800 outlets across the African continent.
One of these women is the retailer’s Group Talent and Resource Manager, Chantal Syce, whose job allows her to live out her passion to connect people with their potential and watch them grow in confidence and capability. With 22 years of experience in human resources, she has ambitions to complete a doctoral degree and advises young women who want to succeed in business to “cultivate the habit of listening; to read, read, read; and to find good role models and allow themselves to grow through constructive feedback.”
