B-BBEE - Who's going beyond compliance?

14 April 2016

Committed organisations will be recognised at the 15th annual Oliver Empowerment Awards on Thursday, 14 April 2016 at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, where the Minister of Science and Technology, Naledi Pandor and the CEO of BUSA Khanyisile Kweyama are expected to speak. Some of the award finalists include Woolworths, City of Tshwane, Sun International, Murray & Roberts, AfroCentric Health, Aspen Pharmacare Holdings, DHL Express and Eskom Holdings.

Some of the companies that have shown consistent commitment to empowerment in the last 15 years, which will be recognised as Legends of Empowerment include: Absa Group Limited; Coega Development Corporation; Nedbank; KPMG; McKinsey & Company; Metropolitan Holdings Ltd; Netcare Limited; Super Group Limited; Total SA; Volkswagen Group South Africa; Woolworths ; South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA); Department of Science and Technology; National Empowerment Fund and FirstRand Limited.

Donald Liphoko, Acting Director General, Government Communications Information Services, and one of the judges, “I have a sense that we don’t acknowledge the amount of work that happens in South Africa particularly in the space of business leadership and innovation. It is important that we start to share some of these good stories because it motivates other people and also builds the kind of confidence that you need as a country.”
