“Effective Skills Development, Employment Equity and Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) based transformation are three key business imperatives for companies doing business in South Africa. This fact sheet discusses the inter-relatedness of these three transformational groups of legislation and strategies and presents several practical and innovative approaches and guidelines that companies should consider adopting to gain competitive advantage from the successful implementation of a sustainable and effective skills development, Employment Equity and B-BBEE transformation strategy in your organisation.
South African managers are generally aware of the existence of Employment Equity, Skills Development and B-BBEE legislation. They understand that certain companies are required by law to comply with the Employment Equity Act and the Skills Development Levies Act and to provide updated B-BBEE certificates to their customers. However, many managers do not fully understand the requirements and implications of this legislation or its applicability to their own organisation, and as a result, they may unknowingly be placing their company at risk. Failure to comply may result in penalties ranging from the imposition of fines through to the loss of business to compliant competitors, with consequent impact on the company’s image as well as its bottom line. By implication, the company also fails to reap the benefits to be gained by compliance.”
