If you need to become B-BBEE, then meeting the transformation requirements should be your first port of call. But what are your transformation requirements? How does one go about figuring them out? And why does the whole experience have to be so complicated?
“If these are questions you’ve asked yourself in recent weeks as the cogs of South African business start to ramp up to full throttle following the festive season, you are by no means alone,” says Angie Lanham-Love, CEO of Lanham Love Consulting, a 73.57% Black Owned Level 2 BEE Exempt Micro Enterprise that is perfectly positioned to ensure comprehensive B-BBEE compliance. “Lanham Love Consulting has been at the forefront of helping our clients resolve these issues for many years now, and our approach makes for a comprehensive, strategic approach to achieving B-BBEE Compliance for your business.”
“First and foremost, your need to establish what your transformation requirements actually are,” says Lanham-Love. “We have spoken with many business owners frantic to reach Level 1 compliance, when it does not make sense or fit with their overarching business strategy.”
“This is why finding your best-fit solution is so utterly vital,” says Lanham-Love. “At Lanham Love Consulting, we prioritise learning about your company culture and your industry. Our key philosophy is to create solutions that result in additional benefits and increased compliance across multiple elements of the B-BBEE scorecard. And this needs to be achieved through ensuring that the steps you need to be taking towards business transformation are aligned with your company’s overarching business strategy.”
“Lanham Love Consulting pride ourselves on innovatively embracing and integrating transformation to the point of business growth and development,” says Lanham-Love. “We encourage our clients to see B-BBEE as an investment not only in your business, but also in the overall future of South Africa. This is ultimately the goal of transformation and B-BBEE, is it not? The ultimate goal is for an integrated, free and fair South African society in which there is equal opportunity for all.”
“That said, an investment is never intended to be a giveaway,” says Lanham-Love. “Investments need to have returns. And while B-BBEE is by its very nature a long-term investment, one that will see the majority of its returns in the distant future once it has had the ongoing opportunity to change South Africa for the better, Lanham-Love Consulting knows that you and your business need to see a return on your investment in transformation far more quickly than that.”
“This is why engaging with and exploring your transformation requirements is so important,” says Lanham-Love. “Lanham Love Consulting is committed to getting you the maximum benefit out of your transformation requirements now. B-BBEE should be an investment in South Africa that benefits each and every one of us, after all.”
