Putting workers’ money to work

Since 2015, Saver Waya Waya WageWise has educated employees and helped them to grow their financial resilience and better provide for their and their families’ needs. The programme targets South African employees who are primarily black South Africans, have an income threshold of R309 000 per annum (R25 500 per month, adjusted annually for CPI), are 40% female and have a 25% representation from rural areas.


“All employees thoroughly appreciated the programme and felt it was of immense benefit regarding financial management. Some of the words used were ‘exceptional, excellent, admirable, very beneficial’.”

Husheila Gordhan, EAP practitioner, St Aidan’s Hospital, Department of Health, KwaZulu-Natal

“WageWise is a tried and tested financial education programme. We help participants increase their financial knowledge and skills, which in turn should help them change their attitudes and behaviours to finances.”
