Some of the enterprise and supplier development initiatives we have run include learnership on SMME entrepreneurial training, to empower local SMME ‘s on financial management, legal & compliance and marketing management. We further embarked on monthly accounting support and access to operational offices. Some of the SMME’s we have worked with include,

- Local entrepreneurs who wish to supply and service businesses in their communities.
- Local business structures which are already operating some form of business or another in the community
Over the years TimRite has prioritised skills development through learnership programmes, wherein the key focus is on unemployed youth. This is has led to many learners obtaining they certificate of compliance and increasing their opportunity for employment. Successful learnership programmes ran in the Yaverland and Kemp areas.
Of late we have started focusing on the graduate programme, wherein we offer bursaries to learners specifically in the areas where we operate our business. The graduate programme together with the focus on employing a significant percentage of local people where we operate, has contributed to the enhancement of capability
