Founding IQTech

 

Due to the shortage of locally available information technology companies that are able to understand the constraints of the local information technology problems, such as limited bandwidth, low computer literacy and very high dollar-related costs of imported solutions, a definite gap existed for a new approach to technological advancement and business growth.  As a result of this, IQTech was formed as a company that consolidates the knowledge of available talent in the Free State, and to harness, develop and combine local skills with international quality, for the local market.  Due to the huge start-up capital and amount of skills required to develop information technology and new niche products, IQTech will harness and consolidate skills from fragmented local information technology companies and strive as a priority to reverse the resulting “brain drain” to other provinces and the rest of the world.

Our Culture And Principles

 

Anywhere you find IQTech; you will find the IQTech Culture.  All our employees share this common culture, comprised of six universal principles: Spirit, Pride, Determination, Commitment, Passion and Integrity. These are much more than words. Our culture is a tangible force, one that transcends geography and language, and permeates everything we do as a company.

These principles inspire the way we serve our customers, who rely on IQTech professionals as a true partner in their business success.  We not only provide them with the absolute best products, technology and service, but we listen to them, respond quickly to their current needs, anticipate future needs, and improve their business every day.

Our culture also demands that we be responsible advocates of the communities in which we live and work, and of the natural environment we all share. With a cohesive strategy, unique culture and common mission, IQTech demonstrates that excellence, integrity and commitment can – and should – go along with success and growth.

Our Employees

 

IQTech is dedicated to the belief that the most important resource is people who respond positively to recognition, involvement and opportunities for personal and career development.  We are most productive and fulfilled in an environment where we empower and are empowered to act.  We will address problems and mistakes constructively, learn from them and contribute to their solution.  We encourage a team approach with mutually supportive relationships based on our company’s values and principles.

We will judge ourselves on our ability to be self-critical and to provide an atmosphere encouraging open and constructive communication.  We will share the information needed to do our jobs and provide a sense of direction and purpose required to face up to problems and take appropriate actions and risks. We will communicate our goals clearly, assure that decisions are made by those people closest to the situation, and encourage and support them in those decisions.

Our workplaces will be functional, clean and safe.  Our working environment will foster mutual values, goals and goodwill.  We will constantly strive for excellence, satisfaction and, occasionally, joy.  Enthusiasm at all levels of our company is important to us.

People will be hired, paid and promoted based on qualifications, teamwork and performance.  We believe that everyone benefits when the most capable person is promoted.  People will be compensated fairly and rewarded well for their extra contributions to the company’s success.  We will not need a third party to protect our fair rights and interests.  IQTech will invest in the development of its people and especially those that have been disadvantaged by the previous dispensation in the country.  Employment equity and equal opportunities will receive priority.

People are encouraged to participate in setting their own goals and judging their own performance with regular supervisory reviews.  We prefer promotion from within and support active programs of training and self-development that complement the company’s philosophies and objectives.

We seek talented, action-oriented people who are enthusiastic, honest, open and hardworking, who want to do their jobs well and who expect their co-workers to do likewise.  We want men and women who use the company’s equipment and money as carefully as if it were their own, who suggest ways to be more productive and who help each other.  We want and will encourage people to go the extra mile, work the added hour, and make the additional call!  Above all, we want employees who accept responsibility and accountability for their own growth, behavior and performance.
