If your company pays a Skills Development Levy each month (any company with an annual payroll exceeding R500 000), it is critical to conduct a Skills Development and Employment Equity Evaluation that will enable you to accurately implement and monitor your efforts:
- It allows you to identify shortfalls, gaps, signs of EE non-compliance, and discrepancies in your internal structures as it pertains to your employees’ skills.
- Next, your evaluation allows you to effectively consult with your training and EE committees to determine strategic resolutions.
- After conducting an evaluation, an action plan can be created to address the various shortfalls, gaps, signs of non-conformance, and discrepancies that emerged and were discussed with the various committees.
- To effectively implement strategies identified through the evaluation and action plan to achieve compliance with Employment Equity, but also to obtain maximum SETA Skills Development funding.
- This evaluation process will promote consistency in your implementation on an annual basis and allows your business to measure success and progress in terms of EE compliance and true transformation and Skills Development in the organisation.
Instead of implementing blindly for Skills Development and Employment Equity, as strategic approach that starts with a thorough evaluation allows your organisation to make informed decisions about their strategic implementation for compliance.
