This book takes a unique look at Southern African companies that enjoy exceptional levels of employee engagement and the organisational culture traits they use to achieve that.

Rich with stories from some of the region’s leading executives, gathered by author Colin J. Browne over the course of two years, there are lessons here for businesses of all sizes, and in all parts of the world.

Learn how Johannesburg-based Digital Solutions Group got employees to volunteer for an inconvenient project by appealing to their deepest motivations.

Learn how the head of Tanzania for a pan-African forestry company increased morale, time keeping and neatness with one simple action.

Learn how the head of a global real estate business based in Cape Town finds partners who precisely match his Values.

Southern African businesses operate on the margin between first world and third world economies, making innovation critical to their success. With rapidly changing workforce demographics, innovating ways to achieve employee engagement is the first priority for the best of the best in the region.

The analogy of the Happy Sandpit is used to explain how leading companies in the region build teams that work together well, in the pursuit of a common goal.
