“We are not going to scrap B-BBEE” – Ramaphosa

In one of our previous newsletters, we mentioned that B-BBEE still remains an absolute necessity and will be around for many years to come, albeit in an evolved form. President Cyril Ramaphosa’s recent speech to the National Assembly, is proving this true:

“We are not going to scrap B-BBEE, because it has brought real benefits to blacks, women and persons living with disabilities. It has contributed to the significant growth of a black middle class, boosted employment equity and it has enabled black people and women to become owners and managers of businesses,” and “Far from abolishing it (B-BBEE), now is actually the time to strengthen it, to make it more effective and make it more aligned with our goals of increasing investment and employment,”.

Where does that leave you? As a company, you and your staff need to be aware of B-BBEE and the various elements. For instance, B-BBEE affects purchasing decisions (procurement), staff recruitment (management control), strategic partnerships (Supplier and Enterprise Development and Ownership), staff training and succession planning (Skills Development), community assistance (Socio-Economic Development) and numerous other business decisions.

By attending our training, you will be equipped to maximise opportunities to improve your company’s B-BBEE scorecard in a way that makes business sense, and be fully prepared to implement BEE activities in your company.
