Research and Consultancy in South Africa

The range of research and consultancy services in South Africa is as wide as the ever-expanding industries that need to be supported. Consultancy services include specialisms in management, strategy, human resources, IT, financial advisory, engineering, marketing, real estate and politics, as well as in the public sector. Most of the major consultancy firms carry out in-depth market research into the various sectors pertaining to South Africa’s economy. The South African branch of Deloitte Consulting, for instance, produces The Best Company To Work For Survey, which has become an essential human resource tool for top South African organisations. There is also a strong presence of private contract research organisations, many of them in the pharmaceutical sector. Various research institutes and universities provide research services on contract. The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is a key public body in the research sector.
