HandsWise (PTY) Ltd

Proudly part of HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters BEE strategy:  Enterprise Development 

 

Extract from Company profile of HJ Bosch & Sons panelbeaters:

 

Black Economic Empowerment Policy and Strategy

 

We are a level 2 BEE contributor since December 2015 and 51 % Black woman owned.

 

Our BEE strategy has people at its heart.  We believe that a BEE process that invests in people to empower themselves through knowledge, experience and Skills Training for this Industry, would be the best foundation for widespread and sustainable growth in South Africa. 

 

Therefore our strategy is based on “an incubation company model” within our company.  “With small businesses expected to play a major role in job creation in South Africa, the government has recognized the need to help them to become sustainable through business incubation, says Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda) CEO Hlonela Lupuwana.”

 

Handswise (Pty) Ltd was registered and the shareholders/directors are loyal employees of our company for many years in middle- and senior management.  Handswise (pty) Ltd in conjunction with HJ Bosch & Sons panel beaters as the training provider will therefore provide them with necessary business infrastructure and strategic guidance, as well as an environment in which information, experiences and ideas can be freely exchanged.  This builds entrepreneurs ‘skills and knowledge bases, better preparing them for business in the open market.
