Corporate Governance services
In recent years, investors’ research has moved beyond mere macroeconomic, industry and financial analysis to include a range of indicators about the sustainability of businesses. We have learned that environmental failures, social mismanagement or poor governance can destroy companies. Phakisa Incorporated can assist with corporate governance strategies and the identification of gaps. We can also assist with the design and implementation of a practical and operational model, training as well as a system of continuously monitoring effectiveness and compliance.
Integrated Reporting services
The financial capital providers are increasingly requiring improved quality of information and for companies to communicate broader and more relevant information that can assist in effective capital allocation decisions. Historical financial information plays an essential role in corporate reporting, but on its own, fails to provide a complete picture of business value.
More is needed to assist broader stakeholders to understand how management is driving the business forward and how changes in the business environment might present new opportunities and challenges. Integrated Reporting offers the opportunity to center business reporting on strategy and value creation, to demonstrate how the business uses capital and the extent to which it should continue to be invested in the business. Some organizations start this transition by enhancing the structure of their narrative reporting, but the true value is in the adoption of the Integrated Reporting framework as a whole. Phakisa Incorporated has extensive experience of helping various clients implement and enhance their Integrated Reporting processes.
Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment services
The South African government has developed a transformation strategy supported by legal structures, aimed at fostering and encouraging Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) in all levels of the economy. B-BBEE seeks to achieve multiple objectives and gets its direction from different regulators. National Treasury sets the standards and bounds for procurement and preferential procurement; employment equity and skills development are the mandate of the Department of Labour; the Department of Trade and Industry has general oversight; and more recently, the B-BBEE Commissioner answers to the presidency on the progress of transformation.
With the changing legal landscape, compliance monitoring is becoming an ever-present reality and business has to rethink its transformation strategies to position them inside, rather than alongside, business strategy. Phakisa Incorporated network of professionals have extensive experience in advising on the transformation strategies and investments.
