The Department of Economic Development & Tourism hosted the uMyezane BBBEE Awards Gala Dinner on Friday, 4th December 2009. The purpose of the event was to honour and acknowledge those companies that support the vision of Government by making a visible contribution towards transformation and the achievement of BBBEE in the province.
The department commissioned BBBEE Verification Agency, Empowerdex to verify the top 50 BBBEE companies listed on the JSE. Adapt IT was identified as one of the leading companies in complying and contributing towards BBBEE. We’re ranked 7th most empowered listed company nationally. Provincially, Adapt IT holds first place and hence qualified to receive the uMyezane BEE award in the category of Top KZN BEE Compliant Business of the year.
This prestigious awards ceremony took place on Friday, 4 December at the ICC. Our CEO, Sbu Shabalala was there to accept the award on behalf of Adapt IT. “Adapt IT is pleased to be recognized for its contribution to BBBEE in the province of KZN”,said Sbu.

The company will continue to invest further in transformation, in particular, in the domain of skills development where we can add value to our employees, our customers and our community – and look forward to the challenge of maintaining our position as the leading BBBEE JSE listed company in KZN.
