We have further increased our B-BBEE score to 88.37 under the rigorous CA Charter. This has recently been confirmed by EmpowerDEX, a SANAS approved and independent B-BBEE verification agency.
Our vision is to be recognised as a truly transformed firm and transformation forms a critical part of the firm’s strategic goals. These externally verified scores help to measure our progress against the country’s and our own priorities.
This year we have shown significant growth in our Employment Equity (EE), our black ownership, black economic interest and our preferential procurement.
The improvements that we made have brought us closer to our transformation targets. Although we have done well, we still have a long way to go to completely transform and make an impact at senior management and leadership levels in the firm, so that these levels are more demographically representative. Thus it is important that we continue to concentrate on all our transformation priorities, goals and targets.
