According to a replacement Commission for Employment Equality report, White and Indian South Africans are the favorites to be appointed and given promotions.
Also, other findings said that only 15.2 percent of the highest managers within the country are black.
Tabea Kabinde, CEE Commissioner said the highest three occupational levels of organisations experience very slow transformation.
“On average, we are having a 1 decimal point movement from the white population to the designated groups once a year .”
“This is extremely , very slow if you think about that around 31.1 percent of the Black population — meaning African, Coloured and Indian — is represented at top management. It means it’s getting to take us another 60 years if we follow this trajectory.”
She further said that the govt has monitored the compliance of employers with employment equity.
The commissioner said that the utilization equity would be strengthened by the utilization Equity Amendment Bill to require disciplinary measures against non-compliant employers.
The bill will confirm there would be a prohibition for non-compliant businesses from completing business with the state.
However, there would be an introduction of further punishments subsequently.
