BRINGING YOUR PURPOSE TO LIFE
REDEFINING SUCCESS IN BUSINESS
IQbusiness is a conscious company – a certified B Corporation. We are now part of an elite community of over 2000 Certified B Corps around the world. We are all working together to redefine business success.
Our B Corp certification came about thanks to the work we have done, and continue to do, with Partners for Possibility – an education-based social enterprise. As our business grew, we realised that our success lay beyond making profits. As a result, we now focus our attention on making a measurable social impact.
We are using our business as a force for good, to grow people, to grow business, and most importantly, to grow the continent. We want to lead Africa into an era of economic prosperity.
GOOD CORPORATE CITIZEN
Over the years, IQbusiness has established itself as a successful and responsible corporate citizen, committed to growing people, growing business, and growing Africa.
The vision for our Corporate Social Responsibility entity is to harness the passion of our workforce to build a better South Africa.
Of its resources, we have committed 80% to sustainable (proactive) initiatives and 20% to relief (reactive) initiatives. We have separated our efforts 50:50 between people and nature-focused drives. This allows our employees to work on projects that really mean something to them.
Our employees are involved in multiple initiatives relating to wildlife responsibility programmes, including sponsoring events and project involvement with the Endangered Wildlife Trust. IQbusiness offers its expertise in technology infrastructure and donates reconditioned computers and hardware to EWT.
Partners for Possibility is a creative solution to South Africa's education crisis - it is a co-action, co-learning partnership between School Principals and Business Leaders, enabling social cohesion through partnerships, and empowering Principals to become change leaders in their schools and communities. The Partners for Possibility Programme facilitates cross-sectoral reciprocal partnerships between Business, Government and the Social Sector.
As part of the worldwide movement of social innovation, The CEO SleepOut™ has spread its message to all corners of the globe, challenging C-Suite members, influencers and decision makers from organisations throughout South Africa to Rise To The Challenge and spend a winter's night on the streets, raising funds and collecting items of need for various appointed Beneficiaries.
Shooting Stars’ focus is getting IQbusiness employees involved in a series of annual South African CSR activities, including SANBS blood drives, Casual Day, CANSA Shavathon, Mandela Day and many more.
The National Mentorship Movement is an initiative born out of the successful collaboration between such entities as The Black Management Forum (BMF), The Jewish Business Support Organization, Ortjet and corporate South Africa.
