Through its BBBEE policy, BVi endeavours to achieve the following objectives:
In addition to the valuable contribution made to skills development through the BVi Employee Trust, BVi also implemented its own skills development programme as part of its BBBEE commitment.
BVi encourages every employee to develop their own skills through internal and external training programmes and to actively educate themselves according to an Individual Skills Development Plan. The planning is carried out with inputs from the employee, their Line Manager, and the relevant Regional Director and Head of Department, where necessary. The Individual Skills Development Plan is reconsidered and amended on the Performance Appraisal and Performance Review interview respectively. In an industry where technically skilled and qualified PDIs are especially scarce, BVi is proud to declare that a substantial component of its senior staff and managers are compliant with South Africa’s policies.
The objective of the BVi Trust is to increase the participation and development of technically oriented and qualified PDI (previously disadvantaged individuals) employees in the company and to assist them to develop as entrepreneurs, owners and managers.
As a dynamic organisation, BVi focuses on controlled growth and on developing the knowledge and skills of its employees through ongoing training.
