Super Group is of the firm belief that a more equitable economy will benefit all South Africans and that B-BBEE is key to sustainable economic growth and social development. This philosophy is ratified in the Group Employment Equity Policy, which places economically viable and self-sustaining transformation at the heart of numerous people practices deliberately designed to promote the greater inclusion of employees across a variety of backgrounds. Individual development, equality and performance-based advancement are the cornerstones of these transformation initiatives and are aimed at progressing and maintaining a balanced and highly skilled workforce.
The Group’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in our Level 2 B-BBEE accreditation for the year ended 30 June 2021 despite significantly increased legislative targets. The Group regards this rating as tangible evidence of our ongoing work to promote greater black economic participation. It is also key to our sustainable growth - providing distinct competitive advantage for new business acquisition and for the successful retention of existing contracts.
On 1 October 2012, the shareholders of Super Group approved a B-BBEE Scheme for our Black (as defined by the BEE Act) staff. The Group has empowered its South African operations by allocating an effective 20.04% ownership of the South African operations to the Black South African Super Group employees.
