Workforce & Employment Equity Planning and Restructuring.


Lowveld Labour & HR Solutions (Pty) Ltd offer you peace of mind whenever you need to induce Workforce and Employment Equity Planning.

Workforce Planning is a systematic identification and analysis process of what your business is going to need in terms of the size, type, and quality of the workforce to achieve its objectives. It determines what mix of experience, knowledge, and skills are required, and it sequences steps to get the right number of right people in the right place at the right time.


Employment Equity Planning is required when a business employee more then 50 Employees or has an annual turn over threshold more then what is determined by Legislation to register as a "Designated Employer". This means the company has to compile a workforce profile to determine the under-representation of suitably qualified members of "designated groups" in accordance to the National and Regional demographics for actively economic members of South Africa as well as compared demographics of similar companies in same industries. The employer must implement affirmative action measures and develop a plan (Equity Plan) to correct this under-representation of designated group members.
