Bain & Company Statement: October 21, 2019

In late August, Athol Williams made Bain & Company aware of his decision to leave the firm before the end of 2019 in order to refocus on his PhD studies and his lecturing responsibilities. Bain is grateful for Athol’s contributions, including developing and setting in motion the implementation of our remedy plan and his role in the establishment of the new Bain Africa Oversight Board, chaired by Norman Mbazima.

A Career at Bain & Company

Bain & Company has been named one of the world's best places to work, offering a wide range of career options for undergraduates, MBAs, advanced degree holders and experienced professionals.

Our formula for success has been simple—create a high-impact, supportive culture where immensely talented people are encouraged to be brilliant at what they do. 

Social Impact

Social Impact

At the Johannesburg and Lagos offices, we are committed to contributing to the betterment of local society. Simply put, we believe that what is good for Africa is good for Bain. As a result, we work on issues that are critical to South Africa and Nigeria, particularly efforts that improve the social and economic conditions of those in need. We focus on issues where we can have the greatest impact: those that ignite our passions as a Bain community and that leverage our strategic capabilities.

Helping Hands

In the spirit of breaking down barriers between communities and offering hands-on help, Bain Africa contiues to participate in Mandela Day. Bainies spend time working with organisations, putting creative, consulting and childcare skills to good use. In the past, we've put out fires next door to TLC Children's Home, painted jungle gyms at Ekupholeni Trauma Centre and Kliptown Pastoral Pre-School, tested business ideas and strategies at The Hub and the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship, and tested our muscles during rubbish clearing in Kliptown.

Pro Bono

Bain Africa continues to make sizable contributions to local organisations through formal pro bono casework. Working with organisations like Endeavour South Africa, the local arm of a global nonprofit organisation that identifies and supports high-impact entrepreneurs in emerging economies, and m2m, an organisation that works to impact the health of mothers and their babies through education and employment.

Fundraising

Our fundraising is currently focused on payroll giving to select South African charities, and support through national observance days. We hold regular in-office events to raise money for and awareness of such organisations. Examples include the sale of Casual Day stickers through the National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities and the sale of bandanas through the Sunflower Fund (to support leukemia and other blood cancer patients).
