Business Enterprise Development
Any business operating in South Africa today is faced with the task of addressing Black Economic Empowerment (BEE). This means that you will be verified on an annual basis against which you will achieve a score.
The BEE scorecard against which you will be assessed and measured contains 7 elements which are each valued differently towards your final score. Which of the elements you should address and when, is a decision that is determined by your size, your business strategy and the sector or industry that you are in.
Aurik specialises in developing and implementing programs to support your Enterprise Development needs. The starting point begins with a decision; is your ED core or non-core?
Whatâ€™s the difference?
If your ED program is going to drive a direct bottom line result in your business and forms part of your overall strategy, then it is core to your business. This means that you will be allocating time and investment to developing a customized program of medium to long term duration.
If you believe that ED is not core to your business performance and your need is to simply secure your ED points with little effort or fuss, then your program would be non-core to your business operations.
