New B-BBEE Landmark For SRK In South Africa

SRK Consulting (SA), the local arm of the global SRK Consulting group of engineers and scientists, has been awarded Level 1 status in terms of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) codes of good practice.

According to SRK Consulting (SA) managing director Vis Reddy, the new rating demonstrated the business’s strong roots in local, high-quality skills – which extended into its management and ownership. The achievement demonstrated how success breeds success, he said; while the company’s B-BBEE status has steadily evolved on all criteria, training and mentoring are where it scores highest.

“We believe that skills transfer is where true transformation takes place,” said Reddy. “As an employee-owned company, this means that our employment demographics gradually reflect in our ownership profile.”

He noted that SRK’s progress in its transformation journey therefore reinforced the sustainability of its business model. Also, the more transformed a company, the more likely it was to attract a wider range of talent.
