Leaders in their field in the public sector, DLK Group has won a few coveted awards, including Employer of Choice: Small to medium organisations at the Future of HR Summit and Awards. DLK Group’s CEO, Leon Hendricks, and HR Director, Hannes Verwey, were also finalists in the same awards.
“We pride ourselves in our ability to innovate and reinvent ourselves in an agile manner that ensures ongoing alignment with our clients ever-changing business requirements,” says Hendricks proudly.
Hendricks fondly reflects on 2002, when DLK Group was brought onto Project Ukutinga by Accenture as the planning and implementation partner for the project. The project was launched to streamline the City of Cape Town’s IT systems and standardised business processes for the seven municipalities set to merge.
“What a journey filled with great memories,” says Hendricks fondly. “Being part of the current and ever-evolving ecosystem of digital transformation for Citizen-Centric Online Services is extremely fulfilling, and being able to reap its benefits as a Capetonian, is even better.”
The City of Cape Town is just one of the many clients who have benefited satisfactory from the work DLK Group has provided. Other clients include the Kwazulu-Natal Department of Health, Western Cape Provincial Government, Robben Island Museum, as well as the Eastern Cape Office of the Premier.
When Robben Island Museum engaged with DLK, they were looking for a service provider who would implement and maintain a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) asset management system to keep track of their Heritage Assets.
“The project was a challenge for everyone! And since it was our first project involving RFID, it forced us to think differently,” Hendricks said. “More recently, we have completed EA Services for Western Cape Government (Provision of Enterprise Architecture Services Case Study) and OVG, our IT Management project. We are trusted partners and we embrace cloud and cyber security as part of our future journey.”
