Comply with BEE skills development without training your own employees
Did you know you can comply with BEE skills development without training your own employees?
The challenges of a small staff compliment or a specialised workforce
Businesses with a small staff compliment, or with employees operating in a very specialised field, often find themselves in a difficult situation when it comes to BEE compliance, particularly pertaining to the skills development element of the BEE scorecard. Being able to conduct Category B or C training, as classified in the Learning Programme Matrix, can be tricky when you do not employ a large blue-collar workforce. Embarking on a skills development programme that comply with the BEE codes is further complicated when most your workforce is qualified professionals like chemical engineers and industrial chemists because a highly-qualified workforce does not require skills development.
A skills development programme for the unemployed community
To earn up to 47 points on the skills development element of the BEE scorecard it is necessary for a business to conduct skills development for black people equal to at least 6% of their annual payroll. It is ideal to include unemployed and disabled people into the skills development programme for compliance purposes. The solution for small businesses, or those that employ people with specialised skills, is to embark on a skills development programme for the unemployed community.
Triple E Training’s complete Category C skills development package makes it easy for you to comply with skills development without training your own employees. It includes the recruitment of unemployed and disabled people from within the community, the training of those individuals, and submitting all the necessary documentation to your management team. This makes it easy for the company’s verification agency to audit the skills development element of the BEE scorecard, potentially earning you up to 47 points.
Training of individuals from the surrounding community will also have a positive influence on the outcome of the socio-economic development element of the scorecard. To obtain the maximum score for this element a business must spend 1% of net profit after tax on training for black people in rural areas.
