The objective of the NeXtGen_Board is to cultivate a network of diverse individuals across the organisation, who collectively work towards a better future for the group by creating an inclusive workplace environment, while strengthening the employee experience during their one-year term.
“Capricorn Group is known for its visionary thinking towards the development of sustainable opportunities,” said Thinus Prinsloo, Capricorn Group's chief executive officer. “As a result, it comes as no surprise that the group uses current trendsetters in the market to contribute towards the attainment of our overall objectives.”
He said that the NeXtGen_Board showcases the group's commitment to new ways of working, encouraging continuous innovative learning and is supported by creative thinking.
Chapman, himself a millennial, said that he was thrilled to be elected as chairperson of the first NeXtGen_Board. “I am truly excited to work with this team of dynamic and talented individuals. We aim to be practical in our approach to making a meaningful and positive contribution to the workplace and in how we experience our customers and all other relevant stakeholders.”
The NeXtGen_Board members agreed that it's a priviledge for them to be part of such a platform, where they can share ideas on how to lead in the future, especially regarding bringing multiple perspectives to the table, building the group's unique culture, marketing, and business model development.
“It is beneficial to understand millennials as customers and employees. The group's NeXtGen_Board aims to bring together young people who are curious, observant, well-networked, ready to question the status quo and who are ready to put their ideas into practice so that it appeals to the needs of fellow Millennials and Generation Z's,” Chapman concluded.
