At OnRamp, we believe in empowering staff in the workplace, by offering them training options to better themselves and your business as a whole. We agree that training your staff is a pretty cool thing to do right? Now, what if training your staff meant a higher BEE score? Well, it does, and it’s a great thing to strive for.
Of these five B-BBEE elements, Ownership, Enterprise Development and Skills Development are considered priority elements.
Let’s just say, that having a high score on the BEE compliance ranking is more beneficial to your business in South Africa than having Bill Gates as your CEO. It is crucial for South African businesses to adopt BEE to build a better-skilled nation for long term economic goals.
For each individual business, being BEE compliant will help you grow and meet your business goals; it provides credibility for the company – putting you one step better than your competitors; it helps to develop lasting business relationships and it drives you to upskill your employees, which is fantastic for everyone.
THE ADVANTAGES OF BEING BEE COMPLIANT
Skills Development is seen as a priority element under the Revised Codes of Good Practice with the BEE Gods. Upskilling employees benefits your business in that it helps with staff retention and motivation; training as a benefit will assist in recruiting new staff and it assists in making you more competitive in an ever competitive marketplace.
So we’ve seen how important it is to train staff for BEE purposes, but how and where do we do it effectively? The important thing in this instance is being able to capture your training in one place, so it can be easily submitted for your BEE audit. Online training has become a popular way to train staff, because of its flexibility, cost-effectiveness and easy access. It’s one thing training staff, but the most important element is gathering all that data to help get a dashboard view of compliance, competence and knowledge across the workforce.
The important thing to realise when training staff is that you are essentially paving your future for the company and providing a means for better business on all accounts.
