High-Impact Entrepreneurship

South Africa survey measures standard of living for employees

Between February and April, our new research arm–the Endeavor Center for High-Impact Entrepreneurship–surveyed over 200 employees from eight Endeavor companies in South Africa. The goal was to assess if and how these companies are affecting their employees’ standard of living, in such areas as education, health, and income. Among other findings, it was determined that employees’ average monthly compensation was twice the average for all South African employees. Families of employees at Endeavor companies also have better housing and greater access to health care. Nearly two-thirds of respondents said they want to start their own company in the future. Starting this summer, the Center for High-Impact Entrepreneurship will expand the study to other countries where Endeavor operates.
