Nashua’s empowerment success

By on March 9, 2015

Real people. Real solutions.


The Oliver Empowerment Awards is an annual event, attracting South Africa’s top businesses and business people into its midst. This year the awards has the prestige of Nashua as a top sponsor of the Skills Development Category, celebrating companies which implement intensive learnership and skills development programmes that support youth development and promote career awareness for black employees.

Nashua’s marketing manager, Tish Magongwa says, “Nashua believes in people. Our internal and external approach to business takes real people into account and offers them realistic and attainable solutions. This is undoubtedly what skills development is all about.  We are sponsoring the 14th Oliver Empowerment Awards because we believe in thought leaders of empowerment and transformation in our country. It’s an honour for us to be a category sponsor in the recognition of outstanding business leadership. If we didn’t believe in skills development, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”

When Nashua opened their doors for business in 1973 they were a fax machine provider. Today they provide fully integrated business solutions in office automation and workflow. From customised printing systems, managed document services and digitisation of documents to streamlined telecommunications. Without investing in skills development, we would never have been able to make this shift over the years.

In its 14th year, the Oliver Empowerment Awards is a collaborative platform dedicated to inspiring and recognising leaders in transformation, creating a legacy of inspiration for the country’ s business elite.

The award categories reflect a wide spectrum of work these deserving individuals and organisations from the public and private sectors are involved in. This includes CEOs, executives, and leaders in corporate South Africa, SMMEs, government departments and agencies, as well as entrepreneurs.

In collaboration with the Impumelelo publication and the Future of Empowerment Summit, the Oliver Empowerment Awards is a prestigious event in which inspirational empowerment leaders are celebrated for outstanding performance in the world of business and government. The winners will be announced at a gala event at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg on 23 April 2015.
