About Top 500

South Africa’s Best Managed Companies

Recognises The Best in Business in Africa

This annual publication is the ideal platform to showcase your services and products to the real decision makers within any organisation. Our publication talks directly to management teams and directors at board level who influence how money is managed and spent within their organisations.

How it works

The Topco Research Unit closely monitors the business performance of over 3800 companies annually, and based on a set criteria that covers financial performance, people, and policy (or accreditation), they identifiy the Top 5 companies across 100 business sectors who have shown consistent growth within these areas.

What this means

Well, quite simply it means that the TOP500 publication talks directly to the best managed companies and organisations within southern Africa.

Recognition

Top500 is constantly looking to add new and innovative products to supplement its offering. The brand extends from one of the most recognisable business-to-business publications in South Africa to corporate events, online advertising and custom covers.

Methodology

The Top500 research methodology has been designed in conjunction with the University of Cape Town’s Development Policy Research Unit. The top five companies from each of the 100 business sectors constitute the Top500 ranked/benchmarked companies in South Africa.

Standards

In order to do so, a measure of the qualities considered being characteristic of top companies must be designed in order to rank companies. To be classed as one of South Africa’s best, we expect companies to excel in three key spheres, namely financial performance, empowerment, and policy and accreditation. The challenge has been to profile leading businesses – in terms of global and South African best practice standards – that not only excel in their specific sectors, but which also have a strong set of social, empowerment and development policies in place.
