BBBEE in Action
The RTT Group is committed to implementing the seven element BBBEE scorecard. Each Business unit of RTT is monitored separately and individual ratings ensure each unit’s commitment to transformation. The RTT Group also receives a consolidated Scorecard of all its business units.
Over the next three to five years the RTT Group intends to progressively improve its contribution to BBBEE and align with the increased targets of the Transport – Road freight subsector Charter by 2016 to the effect of at least maintaining a Level 3 status. Our strategy for transformation aims to improve the HR element scores through initiatives that promote improvements in the representation of the designated group primarily in the Top, Senior, Middle management and junior management profile. Such initiatives will include but will not be limited to diversity awareness drive, Leadership programmes, targeted recruitment and training supported by a specific EE and AA plan. The RTT group is proud to be implementing Learnerships up to NQF5. Leanerships which RTT has run since 2007 specifically address the RTT skills requirements and provide for potential learning and career progression of those individuals within the RTT Group.
The RTT Group intends to sustain and improve its BEE supplier profile relationship through specific procurement strategies when entering into new or extending supplier contracts and to engage Black and Black Women owned businesses, particularly QSEs and EMEs. In the spirit of broad based impact of our contribution to empowerment, RTT is committed to ensuring that the RTT BEE Trust that has been set up recently, is fully operational in the next 6 months; and that efforts of the RTT Foundation and initiatives of the RTT Group Wellness Programme deliver meaningful change and uplift the quality of life of the targeted beneficiary communities and groups through the engagement of and partnerships with both RTT’s internal and external stakeholders. Our wellness programme specifically address the Transport Industry challenge of HIV and AIDS through awareness and education , testing and counselling and where required, patient management. Our community projects provide access to primary healthcare through the Unjani “Clinic-in-a-Box”: mobile clinics that reach disadvantaged communities.
