TULISILE MANGESI AWARDED DOMESTIC WORKER OF THE MONTH
To celebrate the Heroines in the Home around the country, Hirsch’s has been running a Domestic Worker of the Month competition for several years now, where employers nominate their domestic workers for the title. This month Tulisile Mangesi took the title at the monthly domestic workers course held at the Ballito branch. The competition is aimed at acknowledging domestic workers and the work they do. The monthly winners each receive a Hirsch’s voucher and a certificate. Thulisile was nominated by her employer Magda Du Plooy who commented, “ Tuli stands for T – Trustworthy , U – Understanding, L – Loving and I – Incredible and Inspiring.
Tuli has been working for our family for over 10 years and we cannot imagine our lives without her. During this time our family has changed a lot, our two daughters have both gotten married, the first two grandchildren have arrived and the next two are on the way. Tuli has supported us through all these changes and adapted her role within the household accordingly. She loves the grandkids as if they are her own and looks after them on regular occasions. When they arrived she was one of the first to visit at the hospital and refused to give anyone else a turn to hold her babies! She completed her childcare courses (including water safety!) I honestly do not know what we did before Tuli, nor what we will do if she decided to leave us one day.
The course consisted of a talk by Chantal Kemp, owner of HR Worx who gave an inspiring talk on upskilling followed by a lesson on cleaning and maintaining appliances before each lady received a certificate of completion for attending the course.
