Legislative imperatives

Prior to 1994, first-line management was basically a protected domain for white employees. The BBBEE codes of good practice gazetted by the government in various incarnations since then have mandated transformation to enable previously-disadvantaged individuals to work in the first-line manager space. As part of the transformation imperative, the employment equity per the government has set transformation targets for all of the domains of work. The target for black junior management is an aggressive one, which rose in 2012 and will continue to rise over time.

 Developing the skills of this increasingly transforming cohort is not only good business sense – it contributes to an enterprise’s BBBEE score.

For those who think that this kind of change in their organization is merely about giving them a license to operate, there is another argument – in terms of redressing the wrongs of the past, it is the right thing to do.
