The government is to haul more than 1000 companies to the Labour Court for failing to transform and meet employment-equity targets.
The Black Management Forum is, however, extremely concerned about what seems to be concerted efforts to deliberately sabotage the transformation agenda.
Udo spoke to BMF President, Bonang Mohale, who confirms findings from the BMF that 55.3% of professionally qualified people in South Africa are black yet only 14.7% people recruited into companies are black.
These are companies that didn't even bother to fill in the annual form to indicate the progress they are making against their own plans in transforming this country.— Bonang Mohale, President of the Black Management Forum (BMF)
Mohale says that the BMF recommendation that government needs to increase its effort to have economic CODESA (dialogue) with business in South Africa, increase its monitoring and measurements efforts and stiffen fines as well as name and shame the companies that are not transforming.
We want to give effect to this notion of nation building, we don't want to squander these wonderful gifts that our fore-bearers gave us of a free, non-racial and inclusive democracy. So that our people can really benefit from this non-racial.— Bonang Mohale, President of the Black Management Forum (BMF)
