Thanks again for everything.

Vusi Mahlangu - Absa iDirect

I would like to thank you for the best working relationship ever. EAW has proven to be the best agency I have ever worked with. Not only by providing the best candidates suitable for the required position, but also by being on point. Their up-skilling methods they have given to their candidates, this makes them the best company to source from. Throughout the year of working together, I have not had any issues with any one working for this agency. From the receptionist, to Talent searchers to higher management.

It has been a long year, with some target stretching requirements, there has never been a time when I have heard " we won't be able to..." EAW strives in making sure that they serve with a smile. I would like to applaud you on behalf of Absa idirect, and say Thank you for the services rendered, and I am looking forward to working side by side with you.

Keep up the FANTASTIC JOB!!! I vote you number ONE AGENCY IN SA!!!

Dikeledi Malonkane

I want to bid farewell to you all and inform you that I am now permanently employed by ABSA Bank. I have enjoyed working for this company and I appreciate having had this wonderful opportunity to work with you all.

During these last four years you all have provided me support and through your encouragement and guidance I have been able to excel at the projects offered to me. With many of you, I have shared a unique camaraderie which I hope will continue in the years to come even though I shall not be here with the company.

I now look forward to this new position that brings forth new challenges and adds more diverse experience to my career. I do wish you and the company every success in all its future endeavors. Thank you very much for the opportunity once again, much appreciated.

Peter Mills - Metropolitan Digital

I have had the great pleasure of working with Energy At Work for a combined total of around 3 years now. The EAW staff have always taken pride in the quality of candidates provided for the various positions in our business, and it can be seen in the calibre of staff we now have working successfully in our business. We have placed, not only Advisors, but Team Leaders through EAW as well.

Our longest serving EAW advisor has been with us for 4 years now, and has been the top advisor for two months running (July and August 2014). Christie in particular takes a very personal interest in her clients and candidates as well, and has never found any challenge presented by Metropolitan Digital too big. I would highly recommend EAW to any prospective client, and am available for any verbal references you may require.

Adele Kahn - ATOM Support

As we approach the last few months of the year, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the hard work you've put in with our recruitment, but more specifically for the effort you've put into the Profiling Exercise you've done. It made a significant contribution to our current success, and has given me the opportunity to improve overall staff behavior and performance in my area.

I will recommend EAW to any Company who needs an all-round staffing solution. During the past two years, I have worked directly with Nicky, Francois and Christie on various Campaigns and EAW has always offered excellent and professional service.

I have been meaning to email you for days but things have just been hectic.

Telesure Holdings

Telesure Group Services (Auto& General, Dial Direct, Budget Insurance, First for Woman and 1Life Direct) have had dealings with Energy at Work since 2004 for temp and permanent recruitment. We have found their service delivery in terms of turnaround time and quality of candidates to be of a high standard and our recruitment staff and managers have built good relationships with them over the years as a result of their friendly, efficient and energetic approach.


I have had extremely refreshing and professional dealings with Christie Swanepoel and her Energy at Work team over the last few months. Having come from a recruitment background, I always found it difficult to find recruitment agents that are proactive and have a sense of urgency. Christie and her team always deliver and they truly care. They form solid relationships with their clients and make sure they are doing all the can to meet their recruitment needs whether it be temp or perm.

Monja de Connick

I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Energy @ Work recruitment in the last year 2009 - 2010. The experience was great and I would recommend the agency to any company.

There is nothing better than being assisted promptly, professionally and correctly. We received many candidates for interviews and 80% of them where successful. When you take into consideration we are in a fast growing country and we need and expect fast instant service. The recruitment consultant that I worked with Renier Matthee was professional, friendly, helpful, punctual, and assisting and always kept me in the loop.

Thank you to Christie Swanepoel and Renier for your great contribution in our business.

Telesure Holdings

Baie dankie dat jy altyd bereidwillig is om te help met die temps en meeste van die tyd onmiddellik. Dit is n plesier om met jou saam te werk veral omdat jy vinnig aandag gee aan my temp benodighede. Jou vriendelikheid word opreg waardeer!

Indequity Specialised Insurance

I would like to thank you for your services to us for the past 5 years. You have taken the time in understanding our environment and culture fit and have maintained a good business relationship with Indequity. I would like to commend you more recently for your innovation in introducing your automated screening techniques. The video clip is refreshing and gives us the ability to assess communication ability, confidence and a number of qualities in the candidate.


Smartcom has been dealing with Energy at Work since October 2010. The service we have received to date has been of an outstanding level and the management team always endeavors to be flexible and available. Energy at Work has, found, screened and supplied a team that has been performing above expectation, which speaks of the quality of candidate. I believe we have been provided with a model that best suits our business needs, being flexibility and manageability of the Telesales Channels.

Energy at Work comes highly recommended!

Alexander Forbes

Alexander Forbes Commercial Solutions embarked on a very aggressive recruitment drive in September 2010 to fill board approved sales and senior client service positions that were vacant at the time. The Energy @ Work team engaged with the executive and the service we have recieved to date has been outstanding.

Energy @ Work has found, screened and supplied us with staff of a very high calibre that is performing above expectation. I believe thier attention to detail and thier willingness to understand our company needs and culture formed the foundation of a now fully staffed, highly motivated team. We value our relationship with Energy @ Work and consider them part of our team.

Lydca Consulting

Since September 2010 we have been partnered with Energy at work and have found the service levels and professionalism displayed by them to be second to none. Below is a breakdown of the different levels at which we deal with them and also how we rate them. Service: We have been privileged enough to be associated and partnered with energy at work, the service level has never been anything less than exceptional. Delivery: I believe that delivery ties in with service and once again exceptional

Competitive edge: While searching for a recruitment agency to partner with we were lucky enough to stumble upon energy at work and have never felt the need or urge to change from what we believe to be market leaders. Turnaround times: The prompt response and feeling that you are their only client leaves you always wanting more.

Quality: We have never asked twice, never sent anything back and never had the disadvantage of being unsatisfied with their service.

Bayport Financial Services

Energy at Work has been supplying staffing services to Bayport Financial Services Cellular Sales Call Centre since August 2010. We needed an innovative 'break the mould' that spoke to our specific business needs and we found a partner in Energy at Work. After testing various solutions, supported by business cases, we identified an appropriate model and found sales per person increase dramatically for new recruits in the first 3 months.

The business benefit of seeing a seat more productive in the initial period was significant in that our turn-over and cost of sale improved. The model was a complete revolution for Bayport, hence the extensive testing, consultation and inventiveness required to identify the solution. Energy at Work is always willing to accommodate and re-look the solution in line with changing business needs as well as ongoing performance improvement and cost reduction. The flexibility and client orientation has been strong even though at times it has also tested the partnership. Bayport will continue to seek innovation and cost efficiency in it's staffing space.

Carmen Green

You definitely have a good idea of what we are looking for, and I believe that the candidates you are sending are of very good quality. Thank you so much Anika!


After using several different Agencies, I can honestly say that ENERGY AT WORK, and specifically Trevor Richey, have more than surpassed my expectations. Professional, courteous and prompt service is what sets this team apart from any other. From the first interview through to the signing of the contract I was kept up to speed with every aspect of my application.

OZone IT Solutions

I wish to sincerely thank the team at EAW, singling out Trevor Richley as representative, for their excellent service in finding and replacing a suitable candidate. EAW proved to be professional at all times, providing quality service and attention to detail. EAW made a huge effort to understand our requirements and culture as well as those of the candidates resulting in a successful match.

Searching for new staff is quite a stressful experience however, EAW acted as our HR department by constantly staying in communication with us; providing us with video interviews (very helpful) and really putting effort into finding the right fit. We were struck with the quality of the candidates.

Thank you for assisting us with growing our company.

Amanda Fourie
