bp Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd views employment equity as a key component of our business policies, which include developing a working environment in which diversity is valued and encouraged.
Our diversity strategy emphasises the importance of the differences that various people bring to the workplace, and the inclusion of all people and ideas. Being inclusive requires elimination of intentional and unintentional exclusionary behaviour. This means that there is no place in our workplaces for favouritism or disrespectful behaviour.
We have zero tolerance for harassment, unlawful discrimination or hate.
Our Employment Equity policies were designed to ensure that these principles are adhered to in our workplaces, and that all skills are fully utilised to achieve our business objectives. These policies also assist us in fulfilling our Code of Conduct, which requires us to have respect for different cultures, as well as the dignity and rights of individuals in all the countries we operate in.
We at bp Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd are committed to complying with the ethos and spirit of the Employment Equity Act. We do this not because it is required by law, but because employment equity is fundamental to redressing the disadvantages our employees have experienced as a result of past societal discrimination. We do this to ensure the advancement of all our people. In compliance with the legislation:
The Employment Equity Act regards training and development as key positive measures. This legislation is in our business interests and will enable us to fulfill our commitment to our employees, by helping them to develop their capabilities.
In fact, the process will at all times be governed by commitment to our employees, which places emphasis on fair treatment, as well as the principles of dignity and equal respect.
Employment equity is linked to our corporate guiding principles – we intend to fully comply with our legal obligations and implement our employment equity plan.
