In 2018 the SABC proposed the retrenchment of 981 permanent employees and 1200 freelancers to cut costs.
On Thursday it announced it's not going ahead with the retrenchments but will conduct a “skills audit” to review the increase in costs.
The struggling public broadcaster expects the skills audit to take 14 months.
Goldberg explained what a skills audit is.
