Accent Labs adds value to job readiness and impact sourcing programs

Accent Labs is honoured to be a supplier to Harambee, one of South Africa and world’s most successful job accelerators.

Accent Labs is honoured to be a supplier to Harambee, one of South Africa and the world’s most successful job accelerators. By December 2017 45,000 young work seekers had been enabled by Harambee to find their first job and that number is increasing exponentially. Accent Labs and our sister company, Michelle Clifford and Associates, have been supplying voice assessment, voice coaching and accent modification training to Harambee since 2013.

Our services have been an integral part of the two month long contact centre training programme that Harambee offers. Accent Labs have provided over 5,000 accent modification training licenses to Harambee at substantially reduced rates. Harambee has been an exceptional client and we greatly appreciate the opportunities they have given us to develop our course and reporting system while supplying the course, especially in the initial stages.

Another example of Accent Lab’s active involvement in impact sourcing programmes has been the BPeSA KwaZulu Natal Skills Facilitation Test Programme which ran in late in 2017. Three major training providers and foreign and SA owned outsourcers were involved. The test was successful, with 60 previously unemployed youth placed in productive jobs at the outsource contact centres. The Accent Labs course was particularly well received by the learners and will again be included in the roll out of the programme in the second half of 2018

If you are an NGO or a training company and are planning a job readiness or skills development programme that is designed to uplift young talent, and you would like to include the Accent Labs course as one of the training components in the project then please contact us. Our approach is to see how best we can within reason adjust our pricing to fit your budget.
