But.... that's not all, folks!!!

Latest rumour is that Telkom wants to move their staff out of the "Towers" and relocate them to their Centurion Campus.

IIRC a few years ago Telkom sold the "Towers" to (I think) Old Mutual Properties.

A healthy body equals a healthy mind & Telkom has been doing some good things lately. :)

Now if they can just realise and believe that they can be number 1 in South Africa, things will get even better.

Use the gym very often!!

typical large corporate stupidity and the sort of hypocrisy that should result in heads rolling at an executive level

the "healthy bodies = healthy mind" argument applies to the construction of a gym not to spending 15 peoples job on a gym when you are retrenching;
moreover when a company is trimming to core operations - including divesting itself of fixed property and entering into a facilities leasing approach (ironically Telkom is taking to leasing office facilities but cannot understand the leasing of facilities) - and has staff around the country a gym at HQ is ****ing out of sync. Signing contracts to provide for staff with discounted gym membership or membership at a local gym is quite different (it incurs a manageable overhead) to blowing 4 bar on dumbbells.

Staff wellness is important but it isn't accomplished by pet projects of this scale of magnitude, it is accomplished by having wellness facilities - gyms, day care, counselling services, cafeterias - that keep staff happy to be at work - available across the board as part of a general nuturing of human resources which doesn't happen when you have massive uncertainty and a slash and burn retrenchment process happening.

My concern is that sim-card is not going to fit in his phone.

total remuneration for those that get retrenched dwarfs the 4 bar so all is not lost.
