OUR COMMUNITY | what we do
Beaumont Family Wines is deeply rooted in the Bot River community, as it has been for the last 50 years. We believe that the success of our own farm ultimately depends on the success of our employees, their families and the community. In addition to supporting our team, we champion education. Here are some of the ways in which we support our team and the wider community.
OUR TEAM | proudly Bot Rivieran
Our farm team is from Bot River, a small town of around 8000 inhabitants. Over the years we have had members of the same family, spouses, as well as multiple generations of the same family employed.
We support and invest in our team by:
Paying fair wages, above industry standards
Providing safe working conditions for our staff
Proudly employing permanent staff from our local Bot River community
Offering regular training and upskilling opportunities for our staff
Subsidizing medical care with local private doctors
Offering free weekly counselling session with a qualified councillor to address mental and family health issues
Offering annual workshops covering money management, drug & alcohol abuse, workplace prosperity and parenting skills – www.abbafamilycounselling.wordpress.com
Assisting in setting up retirement plans for our staff
OUR CHILDREN | the future
The future of South Africa depends on people getting a better quality of education. This is the most reliable pathway out of poverty for many children. Without an education there is no freedom to choose your future. We prioritize our donations and fundraising to support educational causes.
We support the parents on our farm team by:
Sponsored stationary for all children of our staff at the start of the school year
Career and subject choice counselling to all the Grade 9 and 12 children of our staff to assist them in making the correct choices for their future to enable them to work towards their highest potential
