17 January 2017
Bidvest Facilities Management, a member of the Bidvest Group, have recently achieved a Level One Contributor
status in an Empowerdex B-BBEE (Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment) report with an AAA+ overall score
and a 51% Black Owned Designated Group Supplier rating.
Aninka Wessels, Chief of People Management at Bidvest Facilities Management, says that the company takes
great pride in achieving a Skills Development rating of A with a score of 18.14 out of 20.00 as well as an Enterprise
and Supplier Development rating of B with a score of 42.02 out of 50.00. “These two scores reflect both the hard
work that our team has put into the process, as well as real transformation across our organisation that impacts
the lives of people,” she adds.
“Our intensive learnership programs at our Technical Training Academy for both our employees and for
unemployed previously disadvantaged people have been extremely successful, and most of these learners have
been absorbed into our organisation.”
Wessels says that their new Level One Contributor status reflects Bidvest’s commitment to transformation in
South Africa and their passion to make a difference in the lives of previously disadvantaged people and
“The fact that we embrace transformation is not because we have to, but because we realise the enormous value
it brings to our people, our organisation, as well as our country,” she concludes.
