DLK’s mission has remained our North Star for our over - 22 year history
The pace of change is getting faster, and the need to transform getting more important. But with the pandemic, businesses were taken to the same baseline. Businesses need the foundations in place to be agile and responsible to customer demands and prepare for future disruption.
The pandemic was a wake-up call for many companies’ business risk, continuity, digital and tech strategies. It accelerated long-term trends into the current reality.
While challenges and uncertainties persist, it can feel daunting to set goals and plan for a new year when 2022 has been such a uniquely chaotic one, with Load Shedding being the number one challenge on everybody’s lips.
Companies globally are chasing the same pot of scarce skills, and time to reskill, upskill and skill our people for the new digital transformation in play - Leon Hendricks
Over the past few years, we’ve seen a profound shift in how people work. There’s no looking back: employers have embraced new models of working, whether that’s in an office, in a hybrid work environment or fully remote. Whilst this is a good thing, it has brought about profound challenges globally for employers needing top skills on sight. Companies globally are chasing the same pot of scarce skills, and time to reskill, upskill and skill our people for the new digital transformation in play.
Some challenges I foresee in 2023 include;
Recruiting new talent for a job role.
Ability to retain top talent with rising inflationary costs
Improving workplace environment for talent retention.
Challenges of remote working.
Self-assessment for improving leadership skills.
Developing high trust levels with the employees.
Teamwork management for creating success
I am ever grateful to our loyal clients for entrusting us with their business challenges that needed an innovative problem-solving approach; we conquered. A special welcome also to the many new clients with whom we have had the pleasure of working, your patience, excitement and energy matter to us. Then to our talented group of employees, whom I fondly refer to as the DLK family, thank you for the hard yards that you have put in for the organisation this year. As a team and individually, you have helped us provide award-winning services to our clients.
We hope your year has been filled with highlights and good health — and that you will find some time to relax and reflect, and come back ready for 2023.
Kind Regards and Festive Wishes
Leon Hendricks CEO: DLK Group
