Firstly, by creating employment opportunities and upskilling previously disadvantaged individuals with the philosophy of embracing race and gender diversity that is reflective of the demographics of South Africa. As such, we continually seek to kick-start employment careers in the professional services sector by providing opportunities to individuals through a partnership with the HCI Foundation and a learnership programme registered with FASSET and the Institute of Internal Auditors of South Africa (IIA SA).

Secondly, through our partnership with the HCI Foundation, GRIPP provides mentoring and contributes towards the HCI Foundation’s objectives as facilitators to enhance employment opportunities for its student bursary and funding programme.

Thirdly, we seek opportunities to contribute our services to non-profit organisations where they are relevant, valued, and where we can make a difference to their continued success.
