EMPLOYMENT EQUITY WORKSHOP
An Employment Equity Workshop took place at Lord Selborne House on Wednesday 4 September 2019. The workshop was presented by Shelley Botha from Guest Resource Services, Port Elizabeth.
An EE workshop was held for our Retail clients, that specifically targeted challenges in the retail industry. Most particularly identifying and overcoming barriers, implementing affirmative action measures and compliance issues. The training was covered how a committee was elected, duties of the committee members, conducting an analysis, compiling a plan, conducting an EE Meeting – minutes/agenda/attendance registers, and what needs to be discussed in these meetings. Draft Policies for HIV Aids, and Recruitment was discussed, and lastly, how to prepare for an EE audit for compliance purposes. This type of “hands-on-training”, is exactly what new committee members needed, and experienced employees, who needed clarification on how to address feedback from the DOL after an audit, in order to be compliant.
