Corporate Social Responsibility is key for all Southsea silos

Business leaders are encouraged to have a set CSR budget monthly to support ongoing community development programmes. However at Southsea, CSR is not just about writing a cheque, and all business units have an active community benefits team, who go out into the community and get actively involved in CSR projects at grass roots level.
Corporate responsibility programs are a great way to raise morale in the workplace.

Some of the CSR projects currently running include:

Birds at Thirty focuses on conservation and the protection of endangered species, with a state-of-the-art in-house breeding programme. Birds at Thirty takes in injured, abandoned, and mistreated birds free of charge and treats them until they are well enough to be released back into the wild or placed in the bird park aviaries.

SPAR Zimbabwe is particularly active with their Community Benefits programme. At a national level, SPAR supports Childline, ZNSPCA, Miracle Missions, Clean and Green, Twala Trust, Zimpact, The Red Frogs, and The EatOut Movement. Individual SPAR stores are also actively involved in local community charities, as well as participating in the SPAR nationwide clean-up campaigns and plastic-free initiatives.

Dayforce, through its VARTA distributorship, supports conservation and wildlife protection (Tikki Hywood Foundation, Bumi Hills Anti-Poaching Unit, Gonarezhou – Frankfurt Scientific Society), and landmine clearing in Zimbabwe (The Halo Trust, Norwegian People Aid).

DM Security sponsors the children of Chikuwa Primary School in Murehwa, paying the school fees for 50 students a year. DM has also donated computers to the school, for use by the children but also by the wider community through evening adult-literacy classes. The company also has a policy to pay full school fees for any child of an employee who has died whilst in the employ of DM security until they have completed secondary education.
