Laser is majority black owned at >51% comprising the shareholding of PAPE Fund Managers, a level-1 BEE rated shareholder, alongside black participation in a Laser management consortium. Our customers in all of Laser’s businesses benefit from the flow-through effect of this black ownership.

Laser offers formal development, training, skills transfer, upliftment practices, and supports and funds external education, development and accelerated learning programs – spending in excess of R10.4millon per annum. Laser recognises the value of diversity and will continue to develop and empower its people at every level in the organisation.
Laser is involved with a number of key community projects on an on-going basis, but has also been involved in several other projects on a less formal basis as needs have arisen. Our focus has been primarily on promoting sport and education among children, followed by environmental projects.
It is inspiring to see our staff using their initiative and getting involved in other worthy causes by donating their time and skills. There has been support for charities such as local children’s soccer teams, Cancer Shavathon, Casual Day and the Rhinose Project. Over the years we have seen year- end parties hosted for underprivileged children, food donations collected for animal shelters and much needed supplies delivered to children’s homes.
Laser remains committed to good corporate citizenship and to entrenching a culture of social responsibility among our employees. We are extremely proud of our staff – both for what they have helped us to achieve and for what many of them have achieved in their own communities in their own right.
