Ruwacon implemented a formal Enterprise Development Program in order to effectively contribute towards Enterprise Development.
The objective of this program is to assist each developing contractor in reaching independence and sustainability by addressing areas of development as identified in the Construction Charter.
A needs analysis of each SMME is done to determine exactly where the needs for development in the organization might be. This analysis is done on various functional areas of the organization including finances and administration, legal compliancy, tendering, purchasing, cost control, programming, technical skills as well as labour and general management skills.
After the needs analysis is completed, a business development plan is compiled based on the needs as identified in the analysis. Certain individuals in the SMME will be identified as protégés and enrolled in a mentorship program. This program entails skills transfer and mentoring on all hierarchical levels of the organization in order to ensure skills sustainability on each level in the organization
All Ruwacon resources are made available to assist the development of the SMME by whatever means necessary, whether it is mentoring or systems transfer and establishment.
