Johannesburg-based tech consultancy BSG has been named the Best Employer Brand in South Africa at the 2019 LinkedIn Talent Awards, specifically among firms with less than 500 employees on LinkedIn. The title was bestowed at the Talent Awards ceremony held in Sandton. 

BSG has been operating across South Africa and the broader African region for more than two decades now, with a specific professional focus on providing tech-based consulting services and solutions to clients. High among the firm’s operating principles is a devotion to investing in people.

As a result, the firm prioritises talent acquisition and management within its operations, and works to ensure that the people within the organisation experience an enabling environment. The latest LinkedIn Talent Award is a recognition of this ethos and its positive manifestations in the South African market.

Among the firm’s broad suite of tech-based services is support with business strategy, technology strategy, delivery management, programme management, data science, customer experience, and a range of others. Software development and agile development also feature in the long list.

BSG’s award winning ethos is also in alignment with the broader economic considerations currently prevailing across South Africa. As the economy gravitates towards digitalisation, shifts in talent have been deemed crucial to keep pace with the demanding changes driving the business environment.

Talent development is therefore the primary focus for a number of organisations across South Africa, while market watchers have urged other companies to follow suit. BSG’s intersection of tech with talent development has made its profile particularly relevant for the contemporary context.

Commenting on the award, BSG CEO Jurie Schoeman said, “So very proud of this award! We are very grateful to be able to do what we do on a daily basis within BSG, for our clients and with communities around us. One of the fundamental principles we believe in at BSG is continuous learning, but that also requires continuous teaching. Through LinkedIn we have been able to learn about, and learn from, a much broader group of people than ever before, and we have been able to take our BSG story to the world outside of BSG.”

“Well done to all the other nominees and winners. We’re grateful to our LinkedIn team for their great support, and to all of our people for sharing their stories. It was such an honour to be named as a finalist, and then to win, in theBest Employer Brand category,” he added.
