This November, we celebrate 6 years of being smartMI.
This journey of believing, enduring and growing, started on 28 November 2012 with no easy promise of future success, but rather endless belief in our ability, strength and sincerity.
Today we are proud to have more than 74 Team Members and 8 successful smartMI branches, situated in 3 different provinces (Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Free-State), and a Head Quarters that operates from Bellville in Cape Town.
We have embraced a culture of learning, listening, supporting and creating opportunities. This has led to several young people who have joined the Company over the years. Some came to learn, experience, mature and move on to work at big Corporates, and others came to learn, experience and grow with smartMI.
We are proud of the quality of learning these young people have received from smartMI. We see this as our small, but positive, contribution to the economy.
smartMI has also become known as a Company that creates opportunities for women and encourages them to be SMART and strong and achieve. Approximately 90% of smartMI Team Members, are women from different age groups, backgrounds and cultures.
smartMI Team Members embrace one another's similarites and we celebrate our differences. We believe that our strength lies in being different, but believing the same.
Above all, we know that we only exist, because of our clients.
smartMI Team Members live amongst our clients, interact with our clients and therefore very easily love our clients. Compassion and empathy, is key to our approach in dealing with a client.
At the start of our Birthday month where we celebrate 6 years of being smartMI, I would therefore like to thank each and every client who is COVERED by smartMI, for their commitment and loyalty. I would also like to thank each and every Team Member who is ensuring that our clients are COVERED the #SMARTWay.
It is never easy to start a business, but it is even more difficult and challenging, to grow a small business into a large business. We are, however, passionate, dedicated, committed and focused on doing it the #SMARTWay!
Thank you for being #smartMI
