In a recent release, Topco Media and Communications named high performing and secure ICT solutions provider Datacentrix as a finalist in the 18th annual Top Empowerment Awards.
As a transformation leader, Datacentrix has been nominated for both the Top Empowered Company: ICT Companies Award and Skills Development Award categories.
As South Africa's premier empowerment event, the Top Empowerment Awards recognises companies and individuals who have contributed to accelerating transformation and building an all-inclusive economy.
Datacentrix has shown a consistent commitment to the evolution of business in South Africa, achieving a level one broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) contributor rating from EmpowerLogic, a SANAS-accredited B-BBEE verification agency, for the past two years.
The company is 51.15% black-owned; 46.98% black women-owned; and with every R100 spent, customers receive a total value of R540 over the various categories and elements on the B-BBEE score card (normal recognition, above the black women-owned threshold).
With a history of honouring industry leaders, finalists and winners at the Top Empowerment Awards have been a source of inspiration for sector peers. With its many accomplishments, Datacentrix hopes to do the same.
Says Ahmed Mahomed, Datacentrix CEO: "Datacentrix has been committed to socioeconomic transformation for over two decades, dedicated to supporting our surrounding communities, skills development and transformation at all levels. This dedication is ingrained in our company culture, and we will continue to place a strong focus on our ongoing empowerment objectives.
"We are gratified to have received this recognition from the Top Empowerment Awards for our endeavours," Mahomed adds.
The Top Empowerment Awards ceremony will take place on 11 April 2019 in Johannesburg. Winners will be those companies and individuals who have demonstrated innovation and leadership in B-BBEE.
