Have you ever thought about how far your staff or co-workers have to walk each day to get to and from work? Those ladies who have to use public transport as they do not have any other means of getting to work. Have you ever asked them what time of the morning they get up? Walk to the taxi rank. Walk from where the taxi drops them to work. Reverse the process in the evening and still have to carry groceries home.
Be mindful of these wonderful women who are the backbone of your business. Be kind be empathetic.
CEO – Ali Engelbrecht – in 2019 embarked on a virtaul challenge of completing 1,200 miles (1,931 kilometres) in 2019. Women who have to use public transport on average walk 1,200 miles in a year. In 2020, Ali again took on a virtual challenge of walking 2,020 kilometres.
The latest challenge involves Ali joining an international team Canadians to walk the width of Canada from West to East Coast. A total of 8,000 kms as a team. Starting on the 1st July 2020 and ending 31st July 2020. Follow Ali on her journey with her Canadian Team.
You are invited to walk with Ali by following her on Facebook and Instagram. Encourage you staff and co-workers to be empathetic and aware to those who are perhaps a little weary when they get to work. By talking, sharing and encouraging you could make a huge difference to someone’s day.
