The Standard Bank KwaZulu-Natal Top Business Portfolio Awards powered by Standard Bank have firmly established themselves as a highlight of the KwaZulu-Natal business calendar.
This year the variety of awards were on offer to celebrate various successful companies and organisations in KwaZulu-Natal. The Awards gala dinner , held at the Elangeni on 21 June 2018, offered an excellent opportunity for all business sectors to meet, be inspired and showcase their achievements to their peers.
Each of the awards on offer celebrated and recognised business and organisational success across the economic sectors in both the private and public arenas. The Awards’ criteria have been drawn from the principles of the King IV™ Report on Corporate Governance™ in South Africa 2016, http://www.iodsa.co.za
King IV™ sets out the principles and recommended practices for all organisations to apply and explain in order to achieve good governance outcomes. In line with King IV, the Awards focus on the organisation/company success in relationship to the economic, environmental and social spheres in KwaZulu-Natal. Factors such as brand and reputation, stakeholder relations and goodwill, environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and quality of governance were all taken into account.
