Air Traffic and Navigation Services appoint new human resources executive

Posted 5 February 2019 · Add Comment

Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) SOC has appointed Lulekwa Ngcwabe, as its new human resources executive.

Ngcwabe has over a decade’s senior management experience and joins ATNS from the City of Johannesburg’s Metrobus entity, where she was general manager responsible for corporate services..

ATNS said its philosophy is to create shared accountability for development and learning for its employees.

Interim ATNS CEO, Thomas Kgokolo said: “The intention is to afford all staff opportunities to learn and develop, either within their immediate sphere or beyond the simplest daily job routine. This inevitably means that our company is depending on its employees to identify, create and make use of available opportunities to develop themselves beyond traditional work-based training, as retention of staff is key. This is one of Ms Ngcwabe’s mandate – to entrench this philosophy within ATNS.”

Voted the Best Employer for two years in a row, ATNS is implementing its long-term Employment Equity (EE) Plan, geared towards ensuring equal representation of employees (designated and non-designated) across all occupational levels. The EE plan involves the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of appropriate measures to redress imbalances of the past, created by discriminatory employment policies and practices.

“The face of our executive committee is changing. The appointment of experts and thought-leaders in leadership positions in this company, especially women, is no coincidence. It has become the norm” said Kgokolo.
