Each 1 Creates 2
More than a quarter of all South African small- and medium-sized businesses say they hope to generate six or more jobs yearly, according to the latest Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM).
The number of SMEs in SA is unclear. The Bureau for Economic Research estimates 2.3 million, which is a conservative figure. Nevertheless, if 25% of those businesses hired six new people, South African SMEs would create 3,450,000 new jobs this year!
In this spirit, the AHI Small Business Chamber is launching a challenge to its members and their constituent SMEs to commit to two new this year.
To promote the campaign “Each 1 Creates 2”, we are asking 75 of our affiliate chambers (because the AHI has just celebrated its 75th birthday). Accept our challenge today: Commit to creating 2 new entry level jobs this year! Then share your commitment; take a ‘selfie’ holding up the number of jobs your business already created “+2” we’ll post on all our social media.
