The camaraderie and spirit amongst our team members is evident because they love what they do and live our company values.”
Companies who qualify as a top employer in South Africa are evaluated in terms of talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits, and finally, culture.
“Coca-Cola Peninsula Beverages continues to provide exceptional employee conditions through nurturing and developing talent throughout all levels of the organisation. We strive to optimise employment practices that continue to contribute to the growth of our employees,” says Morse.

Relying solely on a push route to market strategy from manufacturers into retailers is not enough to get consumers buying products. A pull strategy needs to coexist with the push to drive brand consumption. Integrating these strategies requires intelligent and insightful decision-making. This, in turn, requires data generated through smart technology which provides line of sight across the value chain from manufacturer to distribution, retailer to the consumer.
