our story

A story that goes back to the 1st of May 1999 – “International Workers’ Day”
as the world was nervous about the possible chaos of Y2K, we instead were confident about our business being an entrepreneurial business in the post 1994 South Africa. We grouped together purposefully and energetically focused on crafting our executive search business the way we wanted it to be…. and it has sustained itself – and it did not always take us where we wanted to be.

Over the years we participated and are involved in our country, South Africa’s transformation. We witnessed many changes and made a small contribution to moving our nation forward and giving effect to Transformation. We are part of the struggles and the complex challenges our country and our continent faces. We evolved and changed and remoulded the pinpoint one executive search business such that pinpoint one human resources now offers a seamless service in the HR talent sourcing value chain:

…….from organizational design (OD) to job description, to job grading, to salary benchmarking, to executive search and recruitment ,to administering global and South African tailored psychometric, competency and behaviour assessments to C-Suite executive coaching…..

We continuously update and up skill the pinpoint one human resources team acknowledging that we are a small South African executive search business. Wanting to grow and expand.

Then the curve ball – is our executive search firm sustainable and sufficiently agile to surf the fluidity in the South African and African economy.

Throughout the global COVID 19 pandemic, pinpoint one human resources acquired renewed tenacity, new and innovative talent and a kinred of spirit as our team “rose from the ashes” and we continued “connecting best business with best talent, here in South Africa and across Africa.

Our new offices in Rosebank reflects our purpose to be relevant to our clients and candidates without losing the tangible “people touch point”.

pinpoint one human resources continue to learn from, be inspired by and have fun with our clients and our candidates alike.

pinpoint one human resources is not only sustainable we continue to place talented people in meaningful employment, place talented people on the next rung of the corporate ladder or encouraging talented people to transfer and share skills with the expanding businesses in the SADC African countries and placing talented people in new careers which did not exist a few years ago.

By doing so, pinpoint one human resources responsibly delivers and contributes to the success of our clients’ businesses.
