In conversation with the Director
Staff at the Vulindlela Clinical Research site who participated in the Tea Talks with Prof Salim Abdool Karim
Launched in May this year the CAPRISA Tea Talks initiative has created an opportunity for employees to engage on a personal level or in groups with the Director ,Professor Salim Abdool Karim. Conversations range from seeking advice regarding careers, future scientific studies or advice for their children’s career. Employees have welcomed the initiative which is held at all the CAPRISA research sites. “It is not a forum for confidential discussions as staff can meet with the Director at his offices for these discussions,” explained Ms Marietjie Geldenhuys Manager of Human Resources at CAPRISA. She said that the initiative is extremely successful and it is “unique to have the Director create opportunities to interact in an informal setting and encourage meaningful conversations”.
