Probe Corporation sees the value in applying good corporate governance and social involvement beyond the work performed in their offices.
Probe’s vision is shifting from a typical corporate point of view, where shareholder value is the exclusive goal, to a more holistic approach that considers and protects stakeholders, employees, customers, suppliers, the environment and the local community.
In the world and particularly in South Africa, corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a big issue in the current business climate.
Consumers expect companies to do more and help others while providing the best products and services to customers. People are placing increasing importance on doing things to support the community and want to see that the companies they interact with are doing their bit too.
Every company, from the smallest market trader to the largest multinational corporation, can do something, no matter how small, to help others and make a worthwhile contribution to their local community.
Probe Corporation helps their employees and the local community by paying learner tuition fees for families to enable a furthering their children’s education.
Donations made by Probe Corporation also support some local families where there are absent parents or are child-headed households. Without Probe’s financial assistance, learners from these families would not be able to engage in studies or complete tertiary training.
Probe’s hope in providing financial assistance to families and the local community is to ultimately strengthen the relationship between parents and their children and to empower young people to make good decisions now and in the future.
Companies need educated, hard-working, ethical employees and reliable, efficient suppliers. As a result of responsible investment in employees and the local community, Probe Corporation has seen the business benefit in terms of social stability and broad prosperity.
