Over the past 13 years, the National Business Awards in association with the Top Performing publication has celebrated South Africa's most prestigious companies and organisations across various industry sectors. These esteemed companies are acknowledged on the basis of innovative business practices, product development, enterprise, sustainability and the overall success of the business. In addition, they are recognised for their social and environmental contributions through excellence of service, commitment to customers, ethical behaviour and environmental sustainability.
"Excellence never comes easily or quickly," said Mathews Phosa - ANC veteran and former national treasurer - at the National Business Awards. "It takes dedicated leaders, ordinary people, a workplace culture, perseverance and hard work. Leaders who inspire and make new ways possible; people dedicated to improving or developing new skills; and a productive and ethical workplace culture that is committed to innovating and delivering the best quality product or service for customers. In total, it is about a mindset, starting from the top of the organisation that pushes for productivity and excellence in what we do."
This showpiece event took place on 19 November 2015 at Emperors Palace where this year's winners were announced. The National Business Awards' hashtag #SABizAwards was a trending topic in South African holding second rank for a duration of nine hours and 34 minutes. Congratulations to Nondu Mkhize for winning the social media prize sponsored by Tumi.
