SoulProviders Workshop Week: Inspiring and Visionary

SoulProviders Workshop Week: Inspiring and Visionary

Lebogang Mgiba At the beginning of every work year we hold our annual #WorkShopWeek at SoulProviders. Featuring workshops presented by guests representing different industries, the second week of January was a chance for our team to be mind-blown, get inspired, plan their year and discuss topics and trends dominating the media landscape. Two of the speakers at this year’s event included Tefo Mohapi, the co-founder of iAfrikan and Bradley Kirshenbaum, owner of distinctly South African brands such as Love, Jozi and Eat Your Heart Out. As a team member, I found that there were many lessons to take from all the sessions, which only motivated us SP Ninjas to work harder and smarter to achieve our dreams. This is testament to the power of storytelling, and how it can influence and change lives. During #WorkShopWeek we were also treated to an exclusive preview of John Barker’s latest mockumentary. Barker’s film delved into the current state of politics in a humorous way, and at the end of the film, we were all given a chance to share our thoughts and discuss the film’s different narratives.. The big take-out for me was that you can achieve whatever you want as long as you work hard towards it and stay focused. In light of racist comments surfacing recently on social media, one of the key workshops found us exploring on the issues of race, identity and culture in South Africa. Thembi, the facilitator, did a superb task of starting the privilege and race conversation through various group-based activities that got the team thinking, questioning and understanding. New skills were imparted and lateral thinking was employed to get everyone to see outside the box.  I asked some of my colleagues for their highlights from #WorkShopWeek:   David Tshabalala “I loved Bradley’s talk, I think young designers in general aren’t exposed enough to to the entrepreneurial possibilities of their craft. Too often, schools train students to be robots who churn out work for big agencies and not enough credit is given to these individuals who may aspire to grow beyond the four walls of your Ogilvy’s.”   Angelique Redmond Workshop week was inspirational and aspirational. The talks gave us a glimpse into some of the most creative and talented minds in S.A. It showed us that the people who make the difference or do something amazing are the people who don’t fit into boxes, who think outside the margins of their craft and push the line beyond what people are used to seeing. My highlight was the new mockumentary by John Barker – as an avid politico the film was exactly what every South...

Travel diary: SoulProviders explores Zimbabwe in style

By Lebogang Mgiba After a long seven days of being kept in suspense, we were finally told the destination for our SoulProviders weekend away. We were going to Zimbabwe! Since we only found out on the day of our departure, we didn’t have much time for the news to sink in before jumping on a plane and flying off to what would be the weekend of a lifetime. Each year, Sarah-Jane ‘SJ’ Boden, our CEO takes us away as part of our long-term incentive program at SoulProviders. SJ believes that we all need to experience the wealth of countries and cultures in Africa, right on our doorstep – and it’s not only a way to encourage people to travel, but her way of saying thank you for all the hard work we do throughout the year and to reward our loyalty. Anyway, if you think Bushbuckridge in Mpumalanga is hot, then you need to visit Zimbabwe. It. Is. HOT! When we arrived at Livingstone Airport (Zambia), the thirst was killing us, but we were all a bit scared to drink the tap water in this new country, since the last thing we needed was to get sick on Day 1. Our shuttle from the airport took us across to Zimbabwe, with its rich history and culture, and our awesome tour guide, Shadrach, kept us entertained all the way. As he talked us thorough the sights, the word ‘activity’ kept popping up and it started to sound quite funny. Actually, it became the ‘word of the weekend’. It turns out that Zimbabwe is a tourist destination and, in an attempt to earn a living, the tour guides are keen for visitors to participate in all sorts of ‘activities’ with a hard sell from the minute you hit the tarmac. Luckily, we already had an ‘activity’ waiting for us at 16:00 – a sunset cruise. I’ve never experienced anything as beautiful as that cruise along the Great Zambezi River and it was then that I realised we really do live on an amazing continent, which deserves to be explored. What made the experience even more special for me was that I could share it with the people I love – my colleagues. There’s a time and place for solo travel and this wasn’t one of them. Back on land, I was blown away by how exquisite The Kingdom Hotel is. It’s actually quite therapeutic, because of the nature, the waterfall and the absolute tranquillity. And then there was the joyful moment when I received my hotel key and a piece of paper with two magic words written on it saying: ‘free...

What Makes SoulProviders an Employer of Choice?

What Makes SoulProviders an Employer of Choice?

So what it is that makes working for SoulProviders so cool? Besides, of course, the fact that cool people work here … In the next few articles, we’ll be introducing you to a few employee benefits at our Content Marketing & Digital agency SoulProviders that make us really feel like coming to work. Even on a Monday.  One of the many benefits enjoyed by SoulProviders employees is the popular annual Winter Hours programme. #WinterHours were introduced three years ago for staff who have an extra long commute or who use public transport. It was initially put in place for team members who were having to leave at ridiculously icy early-morning hours or who were often walking the last part of their commute home in the pitch dark in Winter.  “Whenever I think about our business strategy, which I do a lot of, I always imagine myself in my 20s and remember the things I wished I could have at work or how I wished I could work. Not much has changed: I’ve always liked to feel a bit of control over my work hours and to be able to work flexibly when needed. We’re aiming to have a truly flexi set up for many of our long-service team in 2016. Long service being around 3 years in our industry of course 😉 I have also been lucky to live in a few cities with different approaches to worklife and I read up a lot on global best practice in workplace benefits and I try to experiment and do things differently from the ‘norm’.” says Sarah-Jane Boden, the founder of the couture agency, SoulProviders. “Winter hours just made such sense and it’s amazing what such a small shift in working hours has done for some of our team over the years – now many of our team mates look forward to Winter :).  We’re still dealing with such economic and spatial inequalities in where people live or how they commute, I want to find ways of making it easier for everyone on our youthful team, wherever possible.” It’s a solid step in making SoulProviders an employer of choice for millennials and the Winter Hours programme has also evolved into an incentive for long-service employees who may not struggle with the same commuting challenges. For the lucky #WinterHours beneficiaries, the programme lasts through June and July and everyone that benefits is responsible for making up the work and time out of office. Some of the Winter Hours “beneficiaries” shared how they are benefitting from the programme: Lindelwa – Junior Content Manager I get more sleep time and comfortable travelling because the...
