Our BBBEE Consulting service assists organisations in strategically aligning their BBBEE initiatives to the requirements of the Amended BBBEE Codes. Our approach is to assist organisations in significantly improving their BBBEE score in a manner which is strategically integrated with the organisation’s business objectives. We do this by first conducting an audit to identify the existing strengths and weaknesses in an organisation’s Management Control, Skills Development, Enterprise and Supplier Development and Socio-Economic Development initiatives. We then work with relevant teams within the organisation to develop BBBEE-alignment strategies and programmes to address the existing areas of weakness within these key BBBEE elements. Once the BBBEE alignment strategies and programmes have been agreed to, we then provide support, assisting the organisation with the BBBEE strategy implementation. We also provide a monitoring and evaluation service to support the organisation in ensuring that the BBBEE-alignment strategies are indeed implemented as planned.
As managers have a critical role to play in ensuring the effective implementation of the BBBEE-strategy, we also provide BBBEE Awareness Workshops for all levels of management. These workshops assist managers in understanding the requirements of the Amended BBBEE Codes, the strategic relevance of BBBEE to the business, as well as management’s role and obligations in ensuring effective BBBEE strategy implementation. We also provide BBBEE Information Workshops for employees to facilitate the process of buy-in and acceptance of change.
