The key issues discussed by Siki, Owen and Jamie included the need for current Executive remuneration to be relooked if the best leaders are to be retained and incentivised to remain in South Africa. It is understood that this will prove a controversial move given the current disparity between the lower paid workers and the CEO. However, there is a benefit to the entire country of attracting and retaining the best talent - Happiness of the entire country over time increases.
