EO 138 – Gherdia Prinsloo

Telkom SA SOC Ltd
Senior Specialist Governance and Ethics

Why did you attend the programme?
I was appointed in the Ethics Office as a result of a vacancy and had to commence with the implementation and management of the Company’s ethics programme. I attended the Ethics Officer Certification Programme to equip myself with the knowledge and skills to enable me to perform the requred duties of an ethics officer.

How did the programme benefit you personally?
I received practical knowledge and skills of what is required of an Ethics Officer and how to implement and manage the ethics programme. It also assisted me with knowledge and skills on how to integrate and entrench ethics into the corporate culture.

How is it benefitting your company?
The Ethics Office is now an integral part of the company structure and assists with embedding ethics in the company contributing to the creation of an ethical culture. Our ethics programme consists of the four steps required in terms of King III and with the practical knowldge and skills I obtained we are improving and enhancing on the programme on a continuos basis.
