Your Business and BEE
Study online, in your own time!
Special rates for Hollard partners and Sacob members
The course, now simplified into four modules and built around the Department of Trade and Industry's new codes of good practice, is tailored for owners and CEOs of small to medium-sized businesses who will lead their empowerment strategy development and implementation.
The Department of Trade and Industry's new Codes of Good Practice set ground rules governing implementation of black economic empowerment. While they are complex, once you have worked your way through this four-part course you will understand what your organisation needs to do to, will be equipped to make the necessary changes, track them, and communicate your needs to suppliers as well as your status to customers.
While various sectors will use the charters they have developed to measure their progress on transformation and to validate their suppliers, when dealing with government they will be bound to the Department of Trade and Industry’s generic scorecard and codes of good practice.
The new reality is stark: unless your business reflects South Africa's broad demographics it faces a very real threat. But with the right tools and understanding of the politics behind empowerment, it is not that difficult to get your business into the new way of thinking. Less emotion, more strategy.
Financial Mail and Hollard have joined forces to bring you that understanding. Through a simple online course we will eliminate the confusion and fears over empowerment and bring you easy-to-use tools to apply to your business. Enrol now - it could save your business.
