Employment Equity

July 8, 2018

It is without doubt that Employment Equity (EE) is one of the many strategic objectives of the employing organizations in South Africa, since 1994 when our country became democratic and constitutional state. Compliance with Employment Equity by the designated employing organizations is a mandatory condition of doing business in our country. Employment Equity Act, 55 of 1998 is therefore derived from our Constitution, whose Section 9 of the Bill of Rights states: “Equality includes the full and equal enjoyment of all rights and freedoms. To promote the achievement of equality, legislative and other measures designed to protect or advance persons or categories of persons disadvantaged by unfair discrimination ay be taken”.

Let us help your organization in developing the capacity to master the challenges presented by the Employment Equity Act, and integrate it into your People management strategies through a tailor-made company Employment Equity Programme.

By so doing, your company will achieve competitive advantage in its market sector, be viewed as a progressive and responsible corporate citizen by the South African society.

The underlying Principle of Diversity Management has to do with acceptance. While individuals retain their own sense of values and ethics, diversity management encourages people to recognize that not e erroneous is alike. Diversity Management is a strategy that is intended to foster and maintain a positive work environment. In the South African context Diversity Management could be implemented as an Affirmative Action measure within the company’s Employment Equity Programme, as per chapter three of the Employment Equity Act. Organizations that have integrated Diversity Management & Inclusion into their corporate and business strategies benefit from high performance and productivity of their diverse staff. So, there is correlation between the organization’s genuine introduction and implementation of Diversity Management & Inclusion Programme and the business performance of the organization. The resources deployed to support the programme are justified.
