THE Coega Development Corporation (CDC) took top honours at the prestigious Black Business Quarterly (BBQ) Awards when they won the Kaya FM best transformation award.

The awards, which took place on October 20 at the Emperor’s Palace in Johannesburg, saw the CDC nominated for two categories, namely the Kaya FM best transformation award and the Top Watch best employer of the year award.

“Having been nominated for two categories is an achievement we are certainly proud of as the CDC.

“Walking away as a winner in one of the­ ­categories is the cherry on top and a validation of the hard work that everyone within the CDC puts in,” said Ayanda Vilakazi, unit head of marketing, brand and corporate communi­cations.

The BBQ Awards are South Africa’s most prestigious and longest-running black business awards ceremony and has celebrated and recognised champions of transformation for the past 15 years.

In the Kaya FM best transformation award category the CDC faced stiff competition including the likes of PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Inqaba Yokulinda Youth Organisation ­(IYYO).

In the Top Watch best employer of the year award category the CDC was up against Buna Projects and Consulting and TWF Corporate Travel.

The BBQ award followed hot on the heels of the CDC’s recent certification as the Top Employer 2018 for Excellence in Employer Conditions for the third year running.

The CDC certification in those awards was based on a comprehensive analysis of the human resources environment.
