Globally, small business employs the greatest number of people, yet a large percentage of small businesses fail in the critical first years of operation. Through enterprise development Coega Human Capital Solutions works with government and private institutions to help emerging businesses meet their contractual obligations and become sustainable into the future.
The 5 pillars of enterprise development with Coega Human Capital Solutions are:
1. Business mentoring services
Entrepreneurs heading start-up and new businesses are mentored in management, planning, human resources, financial controls, budgeting, reporting and other skills needed to sustain a business. Mentoring is through on-the-job support and after-hours training.
2. Mentoring and coaching
Mentoring programmes are tailored to the needs of specific industries, such as construction, where particular emphasis is placed on Safety, Health and Environment issues in order to ensure the safety of workers on site.
3 Scoping and setting of parameters
Practically all large government and most big private-sector tenders require that outsourced work be broken down into bite-size elements suitable for SMME’s. Coega Human Capital Solutions identifies SMME opportunities within a project and draws up service level agreements for both the SMME and the main contractor.
4. Pre-tender and tender execution support
Coega Human Capital Solutions assists SMME’s to meet the performance and resource requirements contained in a tender and to correctly complete the tender documents. Once the tender has been awarded, Coega Human Capital Solutions works on site with the SMME to ensure that the required quality standards and deadlines are met.
Coega Human Capital Solutions implements mechanisms to monitor compliance with BEE commitments by going to the work place to confirm that the people listed in the tender are physically involved in the work.
This verification is essential for BBBEE certification for private sector companies and for good governance of public sector projects.
Enterprise development can give your SMME the support to become sustainable and profitable. For assistance contact Coega Human Capital Solutions.
