Zutari news

Zutari’s people, projects and impact in the news.
Zutari, in partnership with CESA, held the 2024 Job Shadow Day over two days (3 and 4 July 2024). Our Tshwane and Cape Town offices hosted over 80 Grade 11 and 12 learners with an interest in engineering sciences. The programme fuelled their excitement and curiosity about how Zutari works. It further gave them a front-row seat into a day in the life of engineers entails.
Given the historical male dominance in the STEM industries, Zutari chose to celebrate IWD by highlighting female pioneers from various fields and profiles in Zutari. We asked them to share their experiences, talk about their careers and teams, and ultimately tell us what #InspireInclusion means to them as women leading the way for others. 
Zutari’s first digital technology expo was a huge success, seeing an unmatched turnout during the two events in our Cape Town and Tshwane offices.

A lot can be learnt about an organisation where leaders grow other leaders and are willing to make the time to engage, encourage, and invest in those who want to make a positive impact and contribution. This is the view of Shamenthree Naidoo, Learning Experience Leader, Zutari, whose team has successfully pioneered the Adaptive Leader Programme (ALP) at the leading consulting engineering and infrastructure advisory firm.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) stands to be a good enabler with the adoption of unmanned equipment and machinery in mining. The industry is already au fait with extracting smart data from sensors, which is the application of technology in terms of machine interconnections and boosting operational safety and efficiency.
