Netcare is committed to making a positive difference in the environments in which we operate and the transformational culture in Netcare is evidenced by our Group’s sustained progress in transformation. Workplace transformation committees within the Group facilitate positive engagement between management and labour in this regard.
In addition to the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) Codes of Good Practice, Netcare’s transformation strategy also takes into account the requirements of the Employment Equity Act, Employment Equity Regulations and the Codes of Good Practice for Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value issued by the Department of Labour.
For 2015, our Group achieved a Level 8 B-BBEE rating based on the revised dti Codes compared to a Level 2 B-BBEE rating in 2014, based on the 2007 dti Codes. The newly promulgated codes have been used to refine our Group’s transformation strategy and set a baseline for 2016 transformation objectives.
