Flight Centre Business Travel, part of the Flight Centre Travel Group Corporate, has made significant progress in its transformation journey, achieving a phenomenal jump from Level 4 B-BBEE to Level 1 status in just under one year.
“A Level 1 score offers benefits to everyone in our supply chain, both financially and concerning increasing their own BEE scores,” says Ryan Potgieter, General Manager Flight Centre Business Travel.
When a potential customer is in the process of choosing a supplier, their own BEE level is affected by the supplier’s level, and the higher the supplier’s level, the more the customer can claim towards their procurement spend.
“It is simple maths: if clients choose a BEE Level 6 company, only 60 cents out of every rand they spend will count towards their own BEE scorecard. However, as a Level 1 company, for every one rand our customers spend with us they can claim R1.35 against their own preferential procurement scoring,” says Potgieter.
