About enterprise Waltons, Company
Waltons is committed to the spirit of transformation and ultimately the empowerment of all its stakeholders. As a company, we have dedicated ourselves to actively promote transformation and to contribute to the establishment of an equitable society.
Waltons has implemented an integrated economic growth and development strategy that addresses the introduction of Black people into the mainstream economy in an effective way. It is our intention to further encompass the urgent need to address continuing poverty and unemployment and as such go beyond the interest of Black businesses and professionals, and will respond to the grass-root needs that will assist the achievement of our governments’ macro-economic policy.
Waltons embraces government policy on BEE and perceives it to be an integral part of the sustainability of our organization. As a result of this, Waltons strives to implement and drive BEE and transformation holistically and consistently throughout the organization.
