A designated Employer’s Affirmative Action Measures is potentially the biggest gamechanger in bringing about transformation in the workplace and increasing an employer’s Management Control score on the B-BBEE scorecard.
In order for them to have any impact on Workplace Transformation they need to meet two important criteria.
The first is that they are required to remove the barriers to the advancement of persons from designated identified in the Section 19 Analysis. The second is that they should adhere to the SMART principle, namely specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time bound.
