Organic growth has been driven by good performance from the staffing and recruitment business, which enjoyed turnover increases across all regions. This was especially boosted by Workforce’s increasing involvement in energy and telecommunication-related infrastructure projects, as well as capital investment in technology to enhance training efficiency. All of the group’s other segments have also made positive contributions to earnings growth, with no companies being put up for sale by the group. Overall, EBITDA increased by 70% to R66 million, while earnings per share increased 48% to 18 cents. The new acquisitions that Workforce decided to buy into are being integrated into the group, and meaningful contributions are forecast to start taking effect in the medium-term. Meanwhile, employee tax incentive remains a contributor to the group’s results. Although this incentive may be discontinued, Workforce has said that strategies are in place in replace this income stream.
