About Signa Group

Signa is about making a significant difference in the businesses of our clients and the lives of South Africans.

Signa Group is a business advisory practice that specialises in transformation, empowerment and growth.  Legislation such as BEE, Employment Equity and Skills Development are often seen as obstacles to business, however, we believe they provide huge opportunities to grow and develop sustainable enterprises. Since 2004, we offer our clients comprehensive B-BBEE compliance consulting.  The key is to implement well formulated, cost effective strategies.

Our vision is to impact 1 million lives by 2020 by delivering ethical and innovative transformation solutions.  We have long standing relationships with over 300 small to large corporate clients nationally and across all industry sectors.  While other consultancies are either too high-level or niched for their offering, Signa offers broader, single source of solutions that deliver value to our clients across the complexities of transformation and compliance legislation.
