Celiwe says at Old Mutual, they are trying to instil in their people that they have a responsibility to support people in times of dire need. “Our culture has evolved in the sense that people are more willing to share their views, especially when it comes to returning to work.”

Matimba says it is important for organisations to be clear about what their culture is. “You then have to ensure your key business drivers, strategic pillars and execution reflect that.”
He says at Vodacom they are clear that their purpose comes first and the vision of the company comes second.
