client

We engage actively with clients in the industrial, commercial and retail sectors. Our main objective is to better understand, and better service, clients needs, thus building stronger relationships and promoting tenant retention.


Shareholders and institutional investors

We communicate regularly with shareholders and institutional investors so as to convey relevant and accurate information about Growthpoint's activities and performance. This creates a more informed perception of the company, while enabling us to receive feedback from the investor community. Methods of engagement include annual general meetings, financial results briefings and one-on-one meetings, and reporting through our website, annual report, sustainability report and other corporate documents.


Employees

Regular interaction with employees helps to ensure staff retention, build employee motivation and performance, and instil confidence and belief in our culture and values. We engage employees through presentations, the intranet, a staff newsletter, team meetings and performance appraisals.


Suppliers

Our procurement policies seek to encourage sustainability and broad based black economic empowerment (BBBEE) by helping existing vendors to achieve the ratings required for sustainable economic development. This necessitates regular interaction with vendors so as to communicate important information such as required service levels and standards.


Organised business

As a founding member and key player in the National Green Building Council of South Africa, we are able to take a leading position in adopting green building practices.


Analysts and the media

We engage regularly with analysts and the media so as to influence stakeholder perceptions (and correct misperceptions), build our brand, and market our positioning and activities, both as a business and as a positive agent of change in a social, economic and environmental context. Interaction takes place through financial results presentations, interviews, press releases and reporting through the company website, annual report, sustainability report and other corporate documents.
