eskomBusinessLive reports that power utility Eskom has scooped two awards at the Most Attractive Employer Awards which were held on Monday in Johannesburg and hosted by Universum Global.  

Eskom took gold (first position) in the category of SA’s most attractive employer for engineering and technology students, and bronze (third position) for most attractive employer for engineering and technology professionals.  "This award is proof that Eskom is not only Africa’s best energy utility but that it cultivates and promotes talent in the most crucial disciplines of our business, which are engineering and technology," said Eskom’s GM for transmission grids‚ Jacob Machinjike.  Eskom boasts a long history of being in first position as the employer of choice among students and professionals in the engineering and technology category, from 2008 to 2014-15.  The power utility received the accolades this year amid very fractious wage negotiations with unions‚ which are set to resume on Wednesday.
