To BBBEE or not to BEE?
Recruiting an excellent workforce is an on-going challenge for employers. Principal companies are proactively looking for significant ways to attract talent. The cost of hiring and losing employees is massive. The current trend now involves emphasis on the development of people. Taking into account that employees are finitely focused on job security, workplaces that need and want the best employees therefore have little choice but to develop their own people.
Training and skills development such as learnerships and internships, attracts more motivated individuals. Employees seeking work appreciate the training and employment opportunity that they are being given. They are eager and prepared to work for an investment in their future in the form of a national certificate.
A trained workforce is easier to manage and will ultimately deliver better results. Knowing that a company invests in their employee’s development improves motivation which means better commitment. In other words, the more an employee feels engaged, the more likely he/she is to produce quality results, and stay with the company. To BBBEE or not to BEE is hardly relevant although it’s an added bonus.
