Most Empowered Companies

Most Empowered Companies is the leading assessment of JSE-listed companies’ progress in delivering on black economic empowerment.

In 2013 Intellidex and Empowerdex launched a new definitive ranking of the empowerment status of South Africa’s listed companies. It set the bar for the rest of the economy by showcasing the companies that have gone furthest in transforming South Africa’s business environment. To be named the most empowered company in an industry and the country is a major accolade for the companies concerned.

This year the report is being published by Business Report on 29 June, following two years with the Mail & Guardian as our media partner.

The rankings themselves will be published along with top editorial analysing the successes of top performing companies. The research is undertaken by empowerment rating and research agency Empowerdex, which has been researching and ranking listed companies for over a decade. As black empowerment has become one of the major strategic challenges for South African companies, Empowerdex’s research has been decisive in measuring it.

The research studies JSE-listed companies in each sector and determines which have done best overall on the various factors that are important in empowerment: from ownership to enterprise development. The research is interpreted by the team of analysts and financial journalists at Intellidex.
