We have experienced the many benefits that KZNEIA have to offer.

Within the last year we encountered many conflict situations which, with the assistance KZNEIA partners, have been settled. In addition, KZNEIA has assisted us with Employment Equity, Skills Development and free IMPACT sessions (mini-workshops). We are pleased to have been members of KZNEIA for many years.



Your assistance regarding that [UIF] was excellent.

I have had the opportunity to work with Andrea [KZNEIA] on several projects for our company, including most recently our Employment Equity Programme.

We have been consistently impressed with her diligence, efficiency and ability to get things done.

She has done her utmost to learn everything about our business products and programmes to assist us in the best way possible , and has provided leadership in getting our Equity programme off the ground.

I would not hesitate to recommend her services.
