WingsNaledi understands the critical importance of compliance in managing travel. But in addition to the standard needs of travel policy compliance, there are also concerns specifically related to supporting government and state owned entities. In conforming to these other areas of concern, WingsNaledi has earned a reputation as a provider of choice to these national, provincial and local government and state owned entities.
Travel Policy Compliance
A travel policy forms the foundation of any good travel management programme. However, without compliance, your policy can become completely ineffective. WingsNaledi recognizes the importance of helping government and state owned entities adhere to their prescribed travel policies which, in turn, help their organisations reap the benefits – including:
- Responsible spend and cost savings
- Supporting supplier agreements (air, car, hotel) for improved negotiating leverage
- Adhering to supplier conditions – especially with air
- Enabling effective traveller tracking for safety and security
WingsNaledi® is a full-service travel management company (TMC) that specialises in servicing the unique needs of government and state owned entities. Established in 2000 in direct response to the need for transformation within South Africa, WingsNaledi is not just compliant with the key tenets of the Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Act but, believes in the true spirit of the initiative, deeply committed to its success and, ultimately, to the success of South Africa.
WingsNaledi demonstrates their commitment to B-BBEE by making sure that their business strategies continue to reflect the goals of ongoing transformation including equal employment opportunities, leadership, management and shareholder opportunities as well as preferential procurement practices including support of developing enterprises.
One of the TMC’s strongest focuses is on sustainability through ongoing learning and development strategies for employees. This is evidenced by the extensive in-house training provided by their Learning and Development department which coordinates comprehensive training curriculums for staff, available at every level of the business, as well as internships and learnerships for individuals with disabilities.
WingsNaledi is uniquely passionate about creating a diverse environment with equal opportunities for a career without limitations – for all employees. Additionally, they have a strong commitment to developing and promoting staff from within the company.
WingsNaledi is also committed to sustainability efforts in the community with a strong Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme aimed at economically disadvantaged individuals. These activities help support the long-term development of South Africa.
In the most recent B-BBEE audit and in terms of the Codes of Good Practice, Wings confirmed its position as a top performer with a Level 2 status. While the audits are done annually, WingsNaledi’s progress across the entire B-BBEE scorecard continues throughout the year with the aim of being a leader in transformation within South Africa as well as within the corporate travel sector.
Most importantly, WingsNaledi remains fully invested in the continued empowerment of South Africans.
