Corporate Social Responsibility

One of our greatest responsibilities is to share a wealth of knowledge and skills – because people with skills and know how build happier societies and wealthier communities.

Compass Chefs Academy

In 2008, we became one of first food and support services companies to launch an in-house chef academy. In partnership with the Swiss Hotel School in Ferndale and supported by The Presidency, our Compass Chefs Academy was founded to offer high quality training to previously disadvantaged youths with a passion for food. On completion of the one-year certificate the students are absorbed into our business. In excess R9.8 million has been invested in this initiative – and with over 300 young aspiring chefs trained and placed into employment to date, our academy now also plays a vital role in addressing the skills shortage in the tourism and hospitality industry.

Supporting the Thebe Foundation

Through the Thebe Foundation, we actively support and participate in a number of educational initiatives– such as Teach SA, the National Schools Programme, the Student Support Programme and the Mpumalanga Province primary schools outreach.
