A talented and diverse workforce is key to delivering our long-term sustainability and the success of our operations is dependent on attracting, developing, and retaining a capable and motivated workforce.
In the 2016 financial year we invested over R22 million into our employee development, which we see not only as an important retention strategy, but as vital to improving the knowledge, skills and experience of our employees to achieve the group’s strategic objectives.
Stefanutti Stocks is dedicated to empowering our employees and encouraging their advancement by providing a system of training and development that is ongoing and structured to purpose. Our business units’s skills development objective is to prepare and empower individuals to participate in the workplace safely and meaningfully. Further, we believe that skills development is a critical contributor to the success of our Employment Equity initiatives.
The group requires that business units ensure that black employees are the primary beneficiaries of many of the programmes offered by Stefanutti Stocks.
We operate two SETA-accredited training centres that provide registered skills programmes to the business units. The training centres develop and register new skills programmes as required by the business units while updating and optimising existing skills programmes to ensure that they remain relevant.
