Employment Equity Statement
Batlhalefi Holdings is committed to recruiting quality people and developing their potential in order to enhance their careers and to support the company in sustaining its competitive edge. To achieve this, taking South Africa’s history into account, Batlhalefi Holdings commits itself to an employment equity programme to accelerate a culture of diversity. Batlhalefi Holdings recognizes its responsibility to equal opportunities for those people who are socially, economically and educationally disadvantaged. Accelerating opportunity for the disadvantaged does not mean that the career development of others will be ignored. Our people will continue to be recognised for their competencies on merit. The employment equity programme will have well defined goals and will be developed in terms of the requirements of the relevant legislation and all that is necessary for compliance thereof. Implementation of the programme will be handled with sensitivity, commitment and fairness.
