At Regenesys Business School, we have always been proud of our roots and heritage as a South African organisation. In 2012, we have taken this one step further by gaining official endorsement from Proudly South African.
Consumers and businesses that support the Proudly South African initiative are making a personal contribution to nation-building, a goal to which Regenesys has been passionately committed since its inception fourteen years ago.
What does it mean to be Proudly South African?
Only superior products carry the Proudly South African mark. Member organisations are committed to business practices that are both uplifting and socially responsible. When consumers purchase a Proudly South African product or service, they know that they are going to get quality and that they are contributing to the upliftment of all South Africans.
Members of the Proudly South African “community” make a meaningful contribution to building South Africa’s economy, alleviating unemployment and retaining existing employment opportunities. They are acknowledged for their quality products and services, identified by the Proudly South African logo – an internationally recognised signifier of a proud and dignified country-of-origin brand.
Through dedicated business forums and sector-specific workshops, members of Proudly South African also enjoy frequent business and networking opportunities with members, businesses and strategic stakeholders. Proudly South African is an initiative that places the power to change the South African economy in the hands of the South African people themselves. It has become a trusted symbol of national pride, unity and business excellence with which any organisation or individual would be proud to be associated.
Membership of Proudly South African is not restricted to a particular type of business or organisation. Any company or institution, whether it renders a professional service or is a manufacturing business; a tertiary institution, government department or even an individual, may be eligible to join Proudly South African, provided that they support the campaign’s overall aims and objectives and meet the membership criteria.
