Tigers’ Leadership Development Programme, called Savages, has welcomed its second class of students.

Eleven participants from across our offices worldwide gathered in Knysna, South Africa to kick off the training in January 2018, and will meet again later in the year in another country where Tigers operates offices and warehouses.
 
Initiated in 2017, the year-long programme is designed for our high potential employees, and offers students an added edge to excel in their current and future roles, by giving them an in-depth access to the entire range of Tigers’ enterprise solutions. 

Sessions include onsite leadership training, leadership style assessment, mentoring, group projects, job rotation, and a 360-feedback survey. 

The Programme welcomed its first class of graduates in November 2017.

Highlights from the Programme’s first session included a one and a half day brainstorming session that focused on turning corporate strategies into implementation and execution. Participants came up with new ideas and the project groups presented their regional action plans.

This year’s class enjoyed networking opportunities including a boat trip, during which participants saw over 100 dolphins, and a beach walk from Brenton to Buffalo Bay.

Meanwhile six members of staff from our South Africa office graduated from an one-year Freight Fowarding and Customs Clearance Compliance course, gainining a NQF4 National Certificate in Freight Fowarding.

Luke Davidson, one of the six students, came first in the country, winning a R20000 study voucher.

Tigers previously teamed up with the Ubuntu Education Fund to run a programme designed to teach young adults in Port Elizabeth coding and IT skills.
