Tactile Technologies achieves level three B-BBEE scoring, focuses on skills, enterprise, supplier development
Tactile Technologies, specialist in touch technology, auto-ID and payment solutions, is proud to announce the company has achieved a level three broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) scoring. This achievement marks Tactile Technologies' commitment to implementing policies and practices that promote transformation and diversity in line with the B-BBEE framework.
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) play a vital role in the global economy and Tactile Technologies is proud of all its achievements. The company's focus on B-BBEE is and always will be on skills development, enterprise development and supplier development.
“Tactile Technologies has made a point of not adhering to tick-box exercises when it comes to B-BBEE. Not only do we train underprivileged communities, but we have also ensured that the training is focused on literacy and numeracy,” says Tactile Technologies Managing Director, Alison Johnston.
The company has been absorbing these trainees into its workforce to create a more diverse and inclusive environment and providing them with the necessary skills for the ICT sector. Tactile Technologies focuses on training that goes beyond basic computer skills, focusing on literacy and numeracy.
In addition, we have invested in supplier development and enterprise development. The company has partnered with MicroVBE, a women-owned business that focuses on logistics, construction and decontamination. Tactile Technologies' focus is on logistics and the partnership is aimed at creating opportunities for women-owned businesses.
Tactile Technologies is also partnering with Longbridge, a local IT hardware supplier, to assist them in growing their business. We believe in creating long-term partnerships that promote mutual growth and sustainability.
Our focus on skills development, enterprise development and supplier development will not only benefit our company but also contribute to the growth and development of South Africa's economy. The company is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of South Africans and is excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.
Over the next few months, Tactile Technologies will be sharing more initiatives that are going to be launched in 2023.
