The Skills Development Act 97 of 1998 states that any employer who is required to be registered to pay a Skills Development Levy (SDL), should submit a Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) and an Annual Training Plan (ATR) in order to qualify for a rebate on their SDL and obtain skills development points on their BEE scorecard.
Designated employers are legally obliged to submit an Employee Equity (EE) plan to the Department of Labour – the intent being to promote equal opportunities for all, regardless of race, gender or disability.

Without a strong retention strategy, the undesirable loss of good talent remains a huge risk, given the potential negative impact on company performance, customer satisfaction and employee morale.
