A story that goes back to the 1st of May 1999 – “International Workers’ Day”
As the world started to get nervous about the chaos Y2K may bring, we instead were confident about our bright and promising future, as entrepreneurs. We grouped together purposefully and energetically focused on crafting our business the way we wanted it to be…. and it worked!
Over the years we watched our country South Africa develop, we witnessed many changes and we contributed to moving our nation forward. Throughout this time, we have met with, learnt from, been inspired by and had fun with clients and candidates alike. We continue to place talented people in meaningful employment, and by doing so, responsibly deliver and contribute to the success of our clients’ businesses.
We are a team, we are passionate and we are focused on connecting the BEST of business with the BEST of talent!
After nearly 20 years in business, pinpoint one has selected the colour INDIGO to reflect the true values and unique characteristics which form the DNA of pinpoint one – integrity, passionate, solution and truth seekers, perceptive, intelligent, high expectations of self and others, traditional, creative and spiritual.
