BBBEE

Aveng Moolmans is a Level 2 BBBEE Contributor. We have developed a comprehensive Transformation Strategy supported by a set of policies and procedures that seek to address the elements on the Construction Charter scorecard and these are evaluated against the following policy objectives: 
 

  • The significant increase in the number of Black people on our Board, and in executive and senior management positions;
  • Enhanced preferential treatment towards HDSA with a special focus on Black Women and Youth owned enterprises in our procurement processes;
  • Increased acquisition of skills, accelerated preference for Black persons to access training and acquire new skills for their development;
  • A reduction of income inequalities among race groups. This includes the prioritisation of HDSA persons in employment opportunities available within the Company;
  • Increasing the proportion of the ownership and management of economic activities vested in the community, broad-based enterprises and cooperatives; and
  • Increased participation in productive economic activities in under-developed areas to uplift the socio-economic conditions of our communities where we operate.

 

Equity and Diversity management

We have a detailed Employment Equity policy that addresses the company's demographic profiles, workplace conditions and practices. Our Employment Equity Forum meets monthly and informs the company on issues of strategic importance. The company aims to have at least 10% of our workforce representing female employees, particularly in roles that were traditionally held by male employees. In our professional cadres and senior positions, we aim to have 40% representation of Historically Disadvantaged South Africans (HDSA) at all occupational levels. Also included in the plan, is the employment of people with disabilities
 

Community Projects

Aveng Moolmans strives to ensure a positive impact on the communities in which it operates. Where possible, we will contract local staff on projects and offer specialised training to ensure a high standard of work delivery.

By investing in the local communities where we operate, Aveng Moolmans aims to make a sustainable contribution which will establish growth of small to medium sized enterprises and outsource of goods and services from local vendors where appropriate.
