Projects and Case Studies

In December 2015 LEAP and Honeywell partnered together to establish a sound B-BBEE strategy to help increase their score. The main component of the strategy is the set up on an Enterprise and Supplier Development programme. The idea behind the programme is to find and support local black owned entrepreneurs in the aim of eventually integrating these businesses into Honeywells supply chain. In doing so Honeywell’s procurement recognition spend will increase to provide them with more points, giving them a competitive advantage, making them more compliant and transforming. On the other hand the small business is supported to the point where they can positively contribute to the economy, grow their business and hire more staff.

We currently have 5 small businesses on the programme at various business stages. They all receive monthly mentorship. Their individual business needs are addressed based on their industry. For example we have enable ISO accreditation and well as legal and tax compliance.

Although the programme is young we hope to integrate these companies into Honeywell’s supply chain by the end of the programme.
