Last year was The Great Interrupter. All plans great and small suddenly had to slam on the brakes and reset; practically everything shrunk into insignificance or got slung onto the backburner with lockdown and the hard reality of a pandemic.
But there was also adaptation and resilience. With the Reconstruction and Recovery Plan and the Presidential Employment Stimulus, I’ve seen various Government Departments and Municipal entities advertising for job opportunities, learnership opportunities, bursaries and tenders. The push to make progress in skills development and get SA working again is admirable. Many tenders were put on hold or cancelled because of hard lockdown. These tenders are now being advertised again and then some. Tender notices continue to be published, pricing is being requested and received, awards are being made and construction and supply contracts have start dates.
Plans are being made and strategies are being put into place this is evident in the stats below from Leads 2 Business industry-focused leads for 2021 to date.
