5 Good reasons to use us
Our collective experience is well in excess of 100 years, addressing every aspect of home ownership and customer satisfaction. The combined skills of our permanent and contracted staff as well as our array of retained specialists provides our Clients, both employer and employee alike, with affordable and unsurpassed access to a knowledge base that is quite unique.×
The level of insight provided ranges from a sound understanding of meeting the employer’s needs, whether it relates to governance, ethics or reporting requirements to true appreciation of the challenges facing the employee, commonly ranging from debt consolidation to lack of housing stock or the inability to raise finance. Our structure, reporting and management tools and techniques mirrors that of your organisation at every level to ensure that the outcome is on a win:win basis for employer and employee alike.×
Whilst many seemingly competitors to SAHC may claim to offer similar services, the tools that we have developed are the result of the collective experience and insight that we have accumulated over decades. Our toolkit incorporates every phase of the interactive process from the initial analytics and evaluation phases through to the “post instalment” of the employee into their new or completed homes. Whilst our toolkit and processes are proprietary, they are at the same time sufficiently flexible to accommodate an employer’s unique needs based on the structure and nature of their scheme.×
Balanced best describes our approach to customer focus. After all not only do we need to ensure that the employer and employee are equally satisfied with our facilitation but our ability to deliver the most satisfactory outcome means that we have to motivate every materials provider, builder, inspector, financier and a wealth of other third party providers, to treat our customers with the same level of preferred status.×
A core operating principle of SAHC is that we do not ourselves supply any housing projects or products or provide any financial services. We also do not accept commissions for recommending any product or service to the employees who participate in the SAHC support programmes.
Any discounts received are disclosed and passed on to our members.
Consequently any recommendations or advice we provide is in no way influenced by SAHC commercial interests.×
Our work with PPC began in 2013 developing an intervention support framework together with PPC’s management. This framework outlined the basis by which PPC would support its employees to access home ownership. Whilst the planning phase began in September the roll out began in ernest in May 2014. Of a total of 471 employees who qualified, 246 have elected to participate in this first phase of implementation. In just more than a year’s period 37 have completed their housing transactions and are now proud homeowners and a further 61 are in various stages of a housing transaction process ranging from pre funding inspections right through to awaiting bond approvals or are in mid project.
The programme was developed and finalized with De Beers Consolidates Mines (DBCM) and De Beers Siteholder Sales South Africa (DBSSSA) in November 2014 with the implementation and roll out kick starting in May 2015. A total of 439 employees were identified as eligible for the programme of which 228 have elected to participate. Three employees are already enjoying the benefits of completed installations.
