Printing SA would like to remind all of our members that our latest FREE webinar will be taking place tomorrow (12 November 2020) from 11 am-12 pm (SAST).

As mentioned in our previous communication, this webinar will focus on the importance of both mental and physical well-being, and how it is essential for prosperity. COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns have brought these concerns to the fore due to the impact they have had on both physical and mental health.

In light of this, Printing SA felt it necessary to highlight these health concerns by partnering with Agility and HEALTH SQUARED to bring you a session filled with insights as to how you can harness these underplayed areas of your, and your employees’ wellbeing. What many business owners, especially in the SMME sector, have quickly come to appreciate is that their greatest asset is their health, as well as that of their employees.

In this enlightening webinar session, Steve Thobela former Printing SA, CEO and Chairman of Spectramed; before the merger with Resolution Health to form HEALTH SQUARED, will share his experience with the Scheme and illustrate some of the major benefits that have been tailor-made to suit the Printing industry.

In addition, Bianca Viljoen, Spokesperson for Health Squared HEALTH SQUARED, and Marcia Le Roux, Head Sales Executive at Agility Channel will be sharing their invaluable insights on the importance of providing quality employee benefits. The Agility team will also share some of the real stories that have led to various organisations realising that the overall wellbeing of their employees is paramount.

Last but by no means least, Elri van Zyl, Printing SA Regional Manager for the Central Chamber has a wealth of experience in the Human Resources arena and she will be highlighting how during the pandemic Printing SA was able to assist members with disciplinary hearings concerning health-related issues.

Join the next FESPA Coffee Break webinar that will focus on what are the benefits of Software automation and what new skills are required? How automating repetitive tasks and building workflows will impress customers, increase throughput and reduce wastage!

Graeme Richardson-Locke FESPA’s Technical Support Manager is joined by Malcolm McKenzie, Technical Director at Colour Engine and Andrew Bailes-Collins, Senior Product Manager at Enfocus. In this Coffee Break, our goal is to provide direction on how to get started with automating your commonly repeated tasks allowing you to focus on other priorities in building your business. Whether you already have an online ordering that needs connecting to production or just want to automate a much larger volume of short-run jobs to increase efficiency and reduce waste we’ll get you on track. The beauty of well-implemented automation is it gives customers clear choices and prevents a raft of misunderstandings and errors that lead to reprints or disappointment.

Register today and take advantage of these quick sessions where you’ll have the chance to ask questions relating to their business situation at the end of each webinar.
