Jaci’s Staff Trust

Jaci’s Lodges are run by a team of dedicated individuals, the majority of which are members of the Jaci’s Staff Trust, and most of whom live in the local community. Each person who works at the lodge contributes to the daily running, management, maintenance and outstanding service that has made Jaci’s Lodges Madikwe famous throughout the years.

Via the implementation of the Jaci’s Staff Trust initiative, Jaci’s Lodges aim to make a tangible difference in the lives of each member of staff. The impact is far-reaching, with the ultimate aim of empowering, uplifting and inspiring the local community.

The Trust offers staff members who have been employed at Jaci’s Lodges for more than five years, the opportunity to become shareholders in the business.

A total of 27% of the business is currently owned by the Jaci’s Staff Trust. The shareholding is held in a trust, and eligible members receive their portion of the company dividends at the end of each year.
