NOTHING CAN STAND IN THE WAY OF PEOPLE
WORKING TO HELP EACH OTHER

Each category of honeybee— worker, drone and queen— has its own important roles and performs specific duties. In a uniquely creative form of communication, inside the hive, one worker bee dances, while other bees watch to learn the directions to a specific flower patch. The dancing bee smells like the flower patch, and also gives the watching bees a taste of the nectar she has gathered. Smell and taste help other bees find the correct flower patch.

 

As the worker bee sucks the nectar from the flower, it is stored in her nectar sac. When she has a full load, she flies back to the hive. There, she passes it on through her mouth to other worker bees who chew it and pass it from bee to bee, until it gradually turns into honey and is stored in honeycomb cells. At this point, the honey is still a bit wet, so they fan it with their wings to make it dry out. When it's ready, they seal the cell with a wax lid to keep it clean.

 

 

Creativity, communication and collaboration also underpin Sappi's everyday business activities: creative training and development initiatives that equip our people and the communities in which we operate with the life and career skills, knowledge and confidence that allow them to build on their own capabilities and further their development.

Open channels of communication that enable our diverse people to have their say in how we can do business better tomorrow than today.

A cross-cutting, collaborative approach that entrenches the common understanding that nothing can stand in the way of people working to help each other.
