Our culture is customer service, satisfying our customers needs Living our company values each day at work involves team work, innovation, improvements in practices and processes, shareholders and our people We are an American owned company, part of a broad global business located in South Africa working as both regional and product business units servicing Sub saharan and African markets Most enjoyable part of my work is building strong, long term relationships with customers, regular customer visits, resulting in sustainable business with a long term view
Working for Howden is the most exciting experience, it is a very dynamic environment with diverse culture. and offers a wide range of engineering products and services to the customers. The company structure makes it easy for reporting and encourages team work. The profit targets set for the company are usually quite steep which exerts a little bit of presure to the magement and then cascading down to the floor staff. The industrial exposure is broader you get to know or learn various products supplied by Howden which enhances a sense of creativity and innovation.

Bureaucracy, Poor Planning and organizing, Office Politics, Double standards and Corruption of work ethics by Management
* I'm used in working under pressure and believe in being more competitive in productivity for the value of money I earn. * I learned to respect my job as my company. * The Management of the Company I worked for was too power in such a way that many employees were not impressed of it during and after end of contract. * The hardest part of the job is when we were forced to work overtime with no compensation. * The most enjoyable part of the job is when we receive compensation for the services we rendered.
There was nothing for nothing
We worked 10hrs and above per day that was not inline with labor relations act.
Our aim to work with a target specific time,and our goal to make the client to be happy, and to obtain skills and knowledge and experience in a progressive organisation,co-workers we have family bond as we are trained to work as team player
Target to keep client job to be done in time
