Progress with Vision 2012

Good progress is being made on all elements of our 2012 strategic action plan under the headings: Leadership and Transformation, Growth of the Core Business through investment in Supply Chain, Private Label and Financial Services, Organic Growth, Acquisitions, New Formats and Categories, and Sustainability.

We are particularly proud that we have now progressed over 100 previously disadvantaged graduates through our Graduate Development programme with 70% of the graduates completing the programme and securing jobs in the Group. We are also very proud of increasing our BBBEE rating from 56% to 66% in the past year. The supply chain progress is now internally measurable in the business and is gaining implementation momentum. The re-branded Game store credit card, outsourced to RCS, has performed ahead of expectation, a sign that there may still be healthy demand for store credit.
