EVN AFRICA - Statement on Affirmative Action
To reach our goal we employ appropriately qualified staff and we have through our history shown a positive approach towards the inclusion of members of different race groups and genders on our staff.
Mr SR (Raymond) Ndhambi is a director of EVN AFRICA Consulting Services. It emphasises our support to the empowerment process, affording partnership to a young previously disadvantaged individual. Raymond has tasked himself specific operational responsibilities related to the Company's redevelopment programme in the field of Project Management, Community Development and Capacity Building.
The black ownership of EVN of 26% consists of Director SR Ndhambi and six shareholders. The overall employment equity is 61%.
We accept that we have a responsibility, to actively support the advancement of members of the historically disadvantaged communities in our chosen field of consulting engineering.
In furtherance of our support we provide capacity building through in-house training actions and other means at our disposal. In relation to our overall capacity we provide financial assistance and bursaries for the formal education of black technicians and engineers.
The firm registered and complies with the requirements of the Employment Equity Act (1998).
In the endeavour to maintain our standard of service excellence, we often associate with specialists of other disciplines. In the recent past we have selectively associated with suitably qualified specialists and firms which appropriately support affirmative action. The company is prepared to execute 100% of any given project in alliance with a previously marginalised consultant.
The firm is actively involved on a continual basis with community development programmes with an annual dedicated budget.
Sharing in the vision of an African Renaissance, EVN Africa Consulting Services offer the technological and management know-how and commitment to find African solutions to African problems, thus ensuring that prosperity and technological advancement are provided to the wider sub-Saharan Africa.
