“I have always liked to construct, build and assemble things. I’m a solution driven person, so once I know the vision is attainable, I start to take action in getting it done.”
What Lerato loves about solution delivery is the joy of realising the vision of a business and creating real process efficiency improvements. “I appreciate most what I do when I have impacted someone else’s job positively by empowering them in the process. Human-computer interaction is my passion so I enjoy creating dynamic and intuitive user applications that almost anyone with basic computer knowledge can operate.”
As a Senior Business Consultant at Saratoga, Lerato’s role entails delivering business solutions through IT capability which enables and supports business to operate efficiently. She also analyses the organisation and design of technical systems, business models, processes and strategic business needs.
Beyond her role, Lerato has embraced the learning environment created by Saratoga and has used the opportunity to invest in her skills and career through valuable training. “Saratoga invests in the skills of their people through training and formal education. We’re also given opportunities for meaningful growth and development through the mentorship and coaching programmes on offer”.
Besides the formal training and mentorship initiatives, Lerato has also found her fellow Saratogans a valuable source of learnings and insights in their various expertise as industry thought leaders. “We learn in rows but grow in circles, therefore I need to stay connected to my colleagues as much as possible.” Lerato believes Saratoga is a company that is shaped by its people who work together to ensure the organisation is a success. “People and the culture of a company is very important. It’s equally as important that the company is formed and supported by the people in it. This makes it natural for the people to live the values, to be a part of the same mission and to share the vision of the company.”
