Sasfin is more than a just bank. We do things differently and are constantly looking for ways to redefine the status quo and differentiate our brand.
Our Group culture is one of commitment, passion, continuous development, diversity, and ethical practice; and our human capital is a critical resource in ensuring stakeholder value is created, enhanced and sustained. For our employees to perform at optimal levels, it is essential that we invest in their well-being. This includes learning and development initiatives, a supportive culture, strong leadership, sound working conditions, and employee assistance.
Sasfin has a diverse culture which embraces the individual and their unique personality, making it a perfect place for the entrepreneurially-minded person. Some of the qualities which Sasfin look for in the recruitment process are:
For a number of years, Sasfin has recognised the importance of ensuring that the socio-economic inequalities which pervade South Africa need to be addressed, and it regards the FSC as an excellent model upon which it based its targets and strategies for the achievement of greater equity within its field of influence.
Sasfin is pleased to note that the FSC has been rejuvenated as a sector code. To ensure objective validation of the process, Sasfin has engaged with an independent approved verification agency not only to provide a scorecard, but also to review progress so that appropriate medium and long-term strategies can be implemented.
The ownership requirements of the generic code remain a challenge because the Banks Act requires regulatory approval for any significant shareholding. Sasfin, however, continues to make good progress in ensuring that its employee demographic profile, its procurement practices and enterprise development initiatives bring real benefits to its stakeholders.
Sasfin has been awarded a SANAS accredited level 6 score, which translates into a BBBEE procurement recognition level of 60%. Sasfin has also been recognised as a value-added supplier.
