Skills Development and the B-BBEE Codes
Skills Development is imperative for corporates to comply with the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Codes. The Scorecard encourages corporates to aim for a minimum of 40% contribution to Skills Development to attain or retain the best possible BEE level.
Revised BEE Scorecard
The revised BEE Scorecard gazetted on 31 May and implemented in Dec 2019 enables companies to earn the maximum Skills Development points if they spend the required 3% (QSE Scorecard) or 6% (Generic Scorecard) of their annual payroll on training.
