Workplace diversity & BBBEE

Workforce diversity

Omnia believes in diversity and equal opportunity, and intends driving transformation in all the markets in which it operates. The Group views transformation as a moral, growth, business and social imperative. Omnia encourages cross-cultural understanding with regard to the diversity of its workforce and the Group’s transformation goals. People are central to the success of the Group and Omnia is reliant on a healthy, skilled and committed workforce to achieve its strategic objectives. This requires a concerted effort to ensure diverse representation within the communities in which Omnia operates and to enrich the quality of the lives of employees in order to sustain the business.

Initiatives to promote BBBEE

Omnia regards BBBEE as a business fundamental that is crucial to the future of South Africa and its economy. It is an essential process required to bring about increasing black participation in the South African economy and to reduce income disparity.

Omnia has achieved a Level 5 BBBEE status, in terms of the Department of Trade and Industry's BBBEE Codes of Good Practice. A Level 5 status affords a BBBEE procurement recognition of 80% for customers of the Omnia Group.

Omnia performed well in terms of ownership, management control, employment equity, skills development (including socio-economic development), enterprise development and supplier development, having exceeded some of the targets set by the Codes in these categories. This is a reflection of the Group's focus on developing employees and communities, and addressing the skills challenge faced by the Group.
