Tiger Wheel & Tyre, South Africa’s most trusted retail tyre company and a proud partner of Discovery Insure, announced the results of its store and staff placements in the 2019 Discovery Insure Partner Awards. It shared this information along with the news that the company received an Excellence Award.
The annual Discovery Insure Partner Awards programme has stringent criteria that challenges its partners to stretch themselves and perform at the highest levels to receive the coveted recognition the programme bestows on a select few.
The 2019 Discovery Insure Top Tiger Wheel & Tyre Technician Award went to Jonathan van der Merwe of the Menlyn store, while the Top Tiger Wheel & Tyre Store Award was presented to the Tiger Wheel & Tyre Fourways Crossing store in Johannesburg.
“We are immensely proud of Jonathan van der Merwe of the Menlyn store and of the team at the Fourways Crossing store for putting in the extra effort that set them apart and earned them the accolades in these prestigious awards,” said Farishta Singh, Tiauto Group Marketing Executive.
Tiger Wheel & Tyre was honoured with an Excellence Award in recognition for its involvement in the YES initiative. Youth Employment Services (YES) is a business-led collaboration with government, which creates new, paid job opportunities for youth between the ages of 18 and 35.
“When we approached Tiger Wheel & Tyre with the proposal for their involvement in the YES initiative, they immediately embraced the programme and started to recruit candidates to gain work experience and potentially a future career,” said Anton Ossip, CEO of Discovery Insure.
“Tiger Wheel & Tyre’s buy-in to the vision we share with the government is truly testament to how companies can support government-led initiatives for the betterment of all South Africans.”
