Aida notches up business first

South Africa’s oldest real estate franchising group, Aida National Franchises, has notched up another first in the local property industry by joining the UK-based Association of Business Executives (ABE).
The association has established a regional chapter, known as ABESA, and has as its aim continuous professional development of junior and middle management to ensure improved career prospects for members.
Aida CEO Young Carr says membership is aimed at further enhancing the professionalism of the group and its dozens of franchises around the country. “As a first step, all Aida’s regional managers have been certified by ABE as frontline managers - and our principals and franchise managers will soon be able to make use of opportunities to sharpen their skills.”
ABESA’s primary objective is to promote its members by affording opportunities for lifelong learning through a network of more than 50 universities worldwide, says ABESA director Nicola Young.
“The local chapter, which has the support of the Services Seta, will focus on professional certification and is also striving to develop a reputable community of managers who adhere to ethical standards that are commensurate with local as well as international best practice.”
Carr adds that Aida’s focus in terms of its membership will be on the franchisor and senior management within the various Aida branches. “I am pleased with our franchise network’s positive response to the iniative and am looking forward to a holistic analysis of the needs of the organisation from a management perspective.”
Aida is the first local real estate group to join ABESA. Other South African companies that have joined the association include prominent personnel groups Drake and Scull.
