The Standard Bank KZN Top Business Awards recognise and celebrate some of the best

businesses operating in the province of KwaZulu-Natal.

Hameed Noormahomed, Standard Bank Head of Business Clients, Client Coverage,

KwaZulu-Natal says, “We see this year’s event as an opportunity to celebrate the

businesses that have done phenomenally well under tough trading conditions and to

encourage businesses to have the confidence to grow and build what they are doing fourfold

to boost the South African economy.”

The Standard Bank KZN Top Business Awards looks at everything that a business has done

through a spotlight. In line with the King IV Report on Corporate Governance in South Africa

2016 all entrants must demonstrate how their respective companies have embraced the core values of business excellence, sustainability and responsibility. The entrants then motivate their reasons for being selected as a winner in the categories selected. This year’s

categories are a departure from the general economic categories used in previous years and reflect the times that we are growing through.

Imraan Noorbhai Standard Bank Head Consumer Client Coverage KwaZulu-Natal says,

“For us the excitement this year is about the change in the categorisation of the awards. The

new categories, including among others, business innovation, entrepreneur resilience, digital

implementation and social responsibility bode very well for how businesses should work. It is

also truly exciting to see businesses evolve and how covid has been the catalyst that has

propelled many businesses to new heights.”

“The judges have had an enormous task assessing the entries and have experienced much

insight into the business heart of KwaZulu-Natal in the stories of success that have been

shared in the entry submissions,” said Grant Adlam CEO, KZN Top Business.
