Supplier Development Benchmark Report

It’s almost time for the 2019 ABSA Business Day Supplier Development Awards and to shine a light on the positive impact that big business is having on the economy and on the people of South Africa.

More than 400 entries were received for the inaugural awards held in May 2018 – from organisations with mature programmes to those just starting their journey. A benchmark report based on information from the awards is now available and provides a window into Supplier Development in South Africa; a baseline that will be used to compare year-on-year progress, and a measure from which to compare changes in future trends.

Learnings include:

  • SD takes commitment, strategic buy-in and needs partnerships
  • Successful SD makes good business sense and is vital to sustainable, thriving, inclusive and transformed supply chains
  • SD is a field of constant learning
  • Peer-to-peer learning and collective actions to create robust ecosystems will help to meet transformational goals

Download the report here and visit the ABSA Business Day Supplier Development website to register your interest for the next awards happening on 22 May 2018. You’ll be notified as soon as entries are open.
