The PMR.africa Awards

The PMR.africa Awards aim to acknowledge contributions and initiatives, strategies, effort and hard work. The goal of PMR.africa is ultimately to acknowledge a company’s vision, integrity, values, competence and ‘empathy’ that contributes to ethical and sustainable business practices.

According to PMR.Africa the purpose of the awards is to enhance competitiveness both locally and internationally, to create excellence and set a benchmark in industry and to acknowledge staff for their role in contributing to a winning company.
